Hugh Grant, the British actor known for his roles in romantic comedies, was once linked to some of the most famous and alluring starlets, including Elizabeth Hurley.
But in 2018, at the age of 57, he tied the knot with a relatively unknown TV producer from Sweden named Anna Eberstein, who was then 35.
Many wondered what drew Grant to Eberstein, as she does not possess the typical model-like appearance often associated with Hollywood romances.
Perhaps it was her unwavering patience and devotion to Grant, as she waited six years for him to propose and gave birth to three of his children over the course of their relationship.
Despite a brief separation after the birth of their first child, Grant ultimately returned to Eberstein and they have been inseparable ever since. In a recent interview with Virgin Radio, Grant spoke candidly about how marriage and fatherhood have changed his perspective on life.
He confessed, “Well, I was wrong, I was just wrong. Marriage has been the sweetest thing that has ever happened to me. Sounds like a cliché, but it’s true. It’s just wonderful to have all this love around. Suddenly you love someone more than yourself and they all love you and that’s great.”
Despite his newfound appreciation for marriage, Grant remains relatively private about his personal life and rarely shares photos of Eberstein on social media.
However, they have been spotted together on occasion, including on a recent walk through the streets of New York City where they appeared happy and content despite their age difference.
