Tinglan Hong is a former restaurant hostess who made headlines for her romantic relationship with the famous English actor, Hugh Grant. During the course of their relationship, Hong and Grant were blessed with two children – Tabitha and Felix Grant. Apart from the fact that she worked at a Chinese restaurant in London, not much information about Hong is there in public domain. While he was at it, Grant kept his relationship with Hong under wraps. Though Grant and Hong were seen together in public places, information pertaining to Hong’s personal life continued to evade local as well as the national media. Tinglan Hong and Anna Eberstein, Hugh Grant’s other girlfriend, became pregnant at the same time, and this became the talk of the town. The media went into a frenzy and many news agencies strived to know more about the ladies in Grant’s life, but nothing much could be extracted.
Boyfriend: Hugh Grant (Ex-Boyfriend)
Born Country: China
Tinglan Hong and Hugh Grant started seeing each other in 2011. However, neither of them confirmed their relationship when enquired by the media. Since Grant was labelled a playboy, the media considered their relationship as a fleeting affair.
Before meeting Tinglan Hong, Hugh Grant was in a relationship with a socialite. Grant met Hong in a Chinese restaurant where she worked as a receptionist. After a few meetings, Grant began to gravitate towards Hong. When Hong met Grant, she had an idea about his past affairs. In fact, she also knew that Grant was seeing another woman even as he was flirting with her. Their age difference too, was never a concern for both of them.
They never cared about being caught by the media. In fact, they were quite happy to display their affection in public. When they both were captured on camera for the first time, they were seen kissing each other at a pub in Fulham, South-West London. After that, Tinglan Hong was seen at the actor’s West London residence on many occasions. But Grant never stated anything about his relationship with Hong.
Grant took a career break and went on a vacation, along with Hong. Tinglan Hong was pregnant by the time they returned from their holiday. In September 2011, Hong gave birth to their daughter Tabitha and that is how Grant and Hong began their journey as parents. Grant then tried to keep Hong away from the media as he did not want unnecessary attention.
After a year, the couple parted ways for reasons best known to them. They reunited a year later, but things were never the same again. Grant was now dating a Swedish television producer named Anna Eberstein, but that did not stop Grant from renewing his relationship with Tinglan Hong.
The media went berserk when both Hong and Anna, Grant’s other girlfriend, got pregnant at the same time. Three months after Anna delivered a child, Hong became the mother of a baby boy named Felix. During this period, it became almost impossible for the three of them to stay out of the tabloids as the media was constantly questioning the ladies about their relationship with Hugh Grant.
Though Grant was constantly being portrayed as a playboy and as someone who was being irresponsible with his numerous love affairs, he later emerged as a responsible father. He did everything he could to provide his children a comfortable life.
Tinglan Hong was born into a family of entrepreneurs in Lishui, Zhejiang province of Eastern China. Hong moved to Britain in 2003 where she started working as a receptionist in a Chinese restaurant. A few sources suggest that Hong is an actress, but there are no records or proofs to support this claim. There are no records of her being cast in any TV series or movies. Not much about her personal life, including her date of birth, is known.
