Rise to Stardom
Anna Eberstein came under media scrutiny in early 2010s after it came to light that she is in a relationship with Hugh Grant. Britain's most eligible bachelor, Grant, who had never married and had fathered several children with his girlfriends after passing 50, was the center of all media attention in British tabloids. While the couple had been very secretive about the affair, the news of the birth of their first child in 2012, followed by another in 2015, were duly covered in the media. In January 2018, the elusive television producer made a public appearance at the 'Golden Globe Awards' while pregnant with her third child with Grant. She recently drew a lot of media attention after the birth of the child in March, followed by the surprising news of the two planning to get married in May 2018.

He subsequently got back with Eberstein and welcomed a daughter in December 2015. Reportedly, her mother had revealed to the Swedish media in early 2018 that she was expecting another child.
