Tinglan Hong – Biography, Personal Life and Relation With Hugh Grant

Like most celebrity girlfriends and companions who achieve fame by dating or getting married to a popular figure, Tinglan Hong became famous for dating a well-known British actor, Hugh Grant. She is best known as Grant’s ex-girlfriend and baby-mama. Hardly will you see an article about the Chinese lady on the internet which wouldn’t relate to the Four Wedding and a Funeral star. Her relationship with the actor might have been described as a “fleeting affair” by Grant’s publicist but it is evident that the actor did enjoy their time together. He kept going back to her and even bought her a house worth €1.2 million. Tinglan is also the mother of two of Grant’s five kids, let’s learn more about her.

Tinglan Hong Biography

Tinglan Hong is a Chinese lady born and raised in Lishui, Zhejiang Province, China. Her mother is a local businesswoman and her dad is also an entrepreneur. While still at school, Hong, as described by her friends on a Chinese based website, was a rebellious student who loves fun a great deal.

Hong lived in China until 2003 when she decided to leave her motherland and move to the UK. She arrived in London and started working as a receptionist at a Chinese restaurant. Although there is no record of Hong ever being in any film or television show both in China and in the UK, few people suggest that she is an actress.

Her Personal Life

Not much can be argued about her beauty, which is one of the reasons Hugh Grant just couldn’t get enough of her. But she is not just about pretty face, Tinglan Hong is a graduate of hotel and management from the University of Surrey, in the UK. During her time at the university, she dated former Columbian soccer striker, Adolfo Mosquera during his playing days.

Tinglan Hong is a mother of two and both of her kids are also the kids of Hugh Grant. Hong gave birth to her first child on September 26, 2011, while she was still dating the English actor. She and Grant stopped seeing each other for a while but got back together after a few months. And shortly after they started seeing each other again, Hong got pregnant with her second child.

When she first moved to the UK, she used to live in a small apartment in Surrey, but now she occupies a €1.2 million terrace bought for her by her baby-daddy.

Relationship With Hugh Grant

Hong and the British actor are ex-lovers who share two kids together. While the pair’s first child, Tabitha XaioXi Grant was born on September 26, 2011, their second child, Felix Chang Grant was born on December 29, 2012. Their kids were born in London, England.

The pair started dating in late 2010, and even though Hong knew that Grant was seeing other women, she never did mind and still chose to date him. She also did not mind the 19 years age difference between them. The first time the public knew of their romantic affair was when they were both seen kissing each other outside a restaurant in London. They were later spotted in several different locations together and also seen at the actor’s residence in West London more often.

Prior to the birth of the couple’s first child, Grant bought Tinglan Hong a house worth €1.2 million through his cousin Flora Hood. The house was purchased three months before Tabitha was born. Tabitha was born at Portland Hospital in Central London, but her father was not present at the time of her birth as he was attending an event in Liverpool.

Few months after they had their daughter, the pair stopped seeing each other and Grant started seeing Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein. Anna is the mother of Grant’s three other kids and his present wife also.

Hong’s life began to look like a typical soap opera when she was pregnant with her second child for Grant. At the same time, Anna was also pregnant with Grant’s first child. Unsurprisingly, their story was something of a feast for media outlets in the UK. Anna put to bed in September 2012, while Hong delivered Felix in February 2013.
