Hugh Grant to marry long-term partner Anna Eberstein

Hugh Grant is reportedly set to marry his long-term partner Anna Eberstein, after six years together.

The Four Weddings and a Funeral and Bridget Jones star – who is is famed for his eligible bachelor status – is finally tying the knot.

Hugh Grant is usually cast in romantic comedies as the cad, the single floppy-haired English gentleman but now he will play the role of his life – the groom.

The 57-year-old British actor is set to wed the mother of three of his children, Swedish TV producer, Anna Eberstein later this month.

The actor’s engagement emerged after wedding banns were posted at Kensington and Chelsea register office, not far from the couple’s £10 million West London home.

The dad has never been married before but has had a number of high-profile relationships – including a 13-year romance with actress Liz Hurley.

He also dated socialite Jemima Khan for three years before she reportedly dumped him in 2007.

The actor was also romantically linked to film co-stars Martine McCutcheon and Drew Barrymore.

To date, the star has five children in total – three with new fiancée Anna, and two – Tabitha and Felix – with former flame Tinglan Hong.

Anna, 39, gave birth to her first child with Grant, a son, in 2012, followed by a a daughter, whose name has not been revealed, in December 2015.

Earlier this year, Grant’s ex-girlfriend Liz Hurley revealed that the couple had recently welcomed a third child but the sex is unknown.

Hugh met Anna in a London bar six years ago, and it appears that the former bachelor may have settled down, despite saying two years ago that marriage was ‘unromantic’.

He went on to add: ‘Do I think humans are meant to be in 40-year-long faithful relationships? No, No, No.’

But best pal and ex, Liz Hurley says fatherhood has changed him. The 52-year-old said in earlier this year: ‘Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person.’
