The 52-year-old actress – who split up with the Notting Hill star in 2000 - was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when she was asked if she was surprised how many children her ex now has.
He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all,’ she blurted.
‘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,’ she joked.
Hugh’s girlfriend Anna Eberstein, 35, already has two children with the actor – a son called John Mungo, 5, and an unnamed child who was born in December 2015.
The actor also has two other children from a relationship with Tinglan Hong. In September 2011, he welcomed daughter Tabitha after a ‘fleeting affair’ with the receptionist. They had a brief reunion, and Tinglan fell pregnant again, giving birth to a boy named Felix in December 2012 – three months after John was born.
Talk about complicated!
