My daughter`s name means happy surprise: Grant

Los Angeles: Hugh Grant`s daughter is christened Jingxi and the Hollywood star says it is a Chinese name which means "happy surprise". He says his little girl`s chinese name reflects her unexpected arrival.

"I can`t pretend it wasn`t a little bit of a surprise but it`s a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby`s name in Chinese - because the mother is Chinese - means Happy Surprise," a website has quoted Grant as saying.

The actor became a father for the first time last year, after a fleeting affair with Chinese model Tinglan Hong. Although the two are not a couple, Grant is determined to be part of his daughter`s life. The six-month old is also named Tabitha.

"It`s surprising that everyone was right all these years. (People were) saying, `Hugh, why don`t you have some children? It changes your life.` And, you`re thinking, `Oh, shut up!` And now that I have (a child), it is life changing. I recommend it. Get some," he said.
