It's the 57-year-old actor's first marriage.

Many have tried to get Hugh Grant down the aisle and someone has finally succeeded! Hugh Grant has tied the knot with his long time girlfriend, 39-year-old Swedish TV producer Anna Eberstein. The couple was married on Friday, May 25th in London. Hugh and Anna have been together for roughly six years when she gave birth to their first child, a son named John. Since then, they've added a daughter who is 2, and another child who was just born this spring. 

No details have been shared about whether the newest Eberstein-Grant collaboration is a boy or a girl. But who is Anna Eberstein? Let's take a look at some details about her and her relationship with the famously marriage-shy actor.

4. Hugh's ex broke the news about latest child.

Hugh Grant's ex-girlfriend of 13 years, Liz Hurley actually broke the news about Hugh and Anna's third child while on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on May 9th. Cohen asked Liz if she was surprised by the number of kids Hugh has. She replied, "He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all! 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.”

5. Many tried, but Anna succeeded.

Hugh Grant has had a number of high-profile relationships. His longest was 13 years with actress Liz Hurley. He was also linked to socialite Jemima Khan and receptionist Tinglan Hong which whom he had two children. He had often cited his aversion to marriage, possibly most notably in 2016 on Sirius XM's Howard Stern show. He called marriage "unromantic." “Do I think humans are meant to be in 40-year-long faithful relationships? No, No, No. Whoever said they were?”

6. News of the marriage leaked.

News of Hugh's impending nuptials leaked last weekend when photos of the wedding banns — a publicly displayed notice that is posted in the register office for 28 days with details of the location of the marriage — were posted in British newspapers.

7. It was a casual affair.

The bride wore a white mini skirt and pale blue button down shirt and held the couple's 2-year-old daughter. The groom wore a blue suit. Eberstein's parents and two brothers and Grant's father and brother were with the couple on the steps of the Chelsea Register office in London.

8. Hugh's wedding ring is unusual.

The couple exchanged wedding bands after reciting their vows. Anna's is a simple band. Hugh's is something rather strange. It's a silver ring that goes from the bottom of his finger to his knuckle with three red stones placed vertically. 

9. Maybe the marriage wasn't so unexpected after all.

On that same 2016 Howard Stern show where Hugh called marriage unromantic, he also said, "I can see the lovely aspect if you marry exactly the right person — your best friend and it's cozy and it's lovely."
