USMagazine, Monday, March 19, 2012, 7:37am (PDT)

It's been five months since Hugh Grant became a father, but the 51-year-old actor hasn't said much about his pride and joy -- until now!

In an interview with The Guardian, the Did You Hear About the Morgans? actor admitted that he's fallen in love with baby Tabitha, his daughter with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong.

"Lots of people warned me that the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually," Grant said. "I thought, well, I'll bluff through -- but very little bluffing has been required."

Though Hong's pregnancy wasn't planned, "I like my daughter very much," Grant revealed. "Has she changed my life? I'm not sure. Not yet. Not massively, no. But I'm absolutely thrilled to have had her -- I really am. And I feel a better person."

Grant -- who has never been married, despite dating Elizabeth Hurley for 13 years -- said he's wary of spoiling his little girl.

"There are few things in life I believe in 100 percent, but one is not giving your children money," the actor explained. "I see nothing but f-ck-ups among my trust fund friends. It's like 99 percent f-ck-ups. So I would not want to do that to my children, no."

When his rep confirmed Tabitha's birth in November, Grant's relationship with Hong was described as "a fleeting affair."

"He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms," the rep told Us Weekly.
