While promoting The Royals, Elizabeth couldn’t help gushing over Hugh, whom she has been very close to for years. While she was at it, she dropped the bomb that Anna had just given birth! “I’m very lucky that 31 years into our friendship, he’s still my best friend in the world. He’s a really great guy,” she told the media outlet. “I see him a lot; I speak to him a lot. You know, he’s now a father of five; he has five kids and he’s a great dad. Yeah, he will remain my best friend for life.” How sweet is that? That’s not all though, Elizabeth also dished about the newborn when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on March 8.
“He had another one last week. He has five,” the actress revealed. “He was over 50 when he spawned them all! He’s an enchanting dad—really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person. It’s improved him. He’s gone up the scale.” Hugh also has two children with ex Tinglan Hong: Felix, 5, and Tabitha, 6. Opening up about fatherhood in the past, Hugh has revealed that it’s changed his life — for the better!
“It’s just lovely to have all that love around. Suddenly you love someone more than yourself,” the British star told People back in January. “It’s unheard of in my case and they love you and it’s all enchanting.” Hugh added, “[Parenthood] is the nicest thing that’s ever happened to me.” Congrats again, Hugh and Anna!
