Hugh Grant just got married for the first time, E! News reports. The 57-year-old Notting Hill star wed his girlfriend of six years, 39-year-old Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein. According to the news outlet, the couple exchange wedding vows on May 25 at the Kensington and Chelsea register office in London.
The pair was photographed celebrating with friends and family outside of the wedding venue and looked happy as they shared the day with loved ones.
The news of the marriage initially broke out yesterday after Eberstein was spotted wearing a piece of jewelry that looked remarkably like a wedding band on May 24. A few days after The Sun reported that Grant was finally ready to settle down and marry Eberstein later this month, the Daily Mail noted that the marriage may have actually already taken place.
The couple was photographed on Thursday night, while out on a romantic date at Loulou’s nightclub in London. In the snapshot, Eberstein flashes a glimpse of her hand and seems to sport a golden band on her wedding finger. At that point, sources were only speculating that the two may have finally tied the know, since the photograph didn’t reveal whether Grant was wearing a wedding band as well. But E! News has now confirmed that the nuptials have indeed taken place.
Growing Your Baby also notes that Grant was finally seen wearing his wedding ring for the first time on the day of his marriage to Eberstein. According to InStyle, the actor’s wedding band is quite a spectacle. Instead of going for a simple gold or platinum band, the Four Weddings and a Funeral star opted for a lavish silver ring, adorned with three red stones, that goes from the bottom of his finger to his knuckle.
And, speaking of style, the couple also chose to celebrate their big day in a casual, color-coordinated attire. The newlyweds were photographed wearing matching blue shirts. Eberstein traded the traditional wedding dress for a short, white skirt that featured an elastic black band, while Grant wore a a dark suit and a blue tie.

Reports of the pending marriage between Grant and Eberstein came after the pair’s wedding banns were posted earlier this week at Kensington and Chelsea register office, located in the proximity of their £10million London home.
“This is a day none of Hugh’s friends ever thought would come. He will soon be a pensioner and has finally become a family man,” a source told The Sun when the engagement was first announced.
Grant and Eberstein have been together for six years and share three children. Their first son, John Mungo, was born in September 2012. Three years later, Eberstein gave birth to their second child in December 2015.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, news of the birth of Grant and Eberstein’s third child was shared earlier this year by the actor’s ex-partner Elizabeth Hurley.
Present at Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, the 52-year-old actress and model spilled the tea that the Love Actually star has just become a father again in March.
“[Hugh Grant] had another [baby] last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all,” she said when Cohen asked her whether she was shocked by how many children Grant has sired.
The gorgeous actress shared a 13-year-long romance with Grant, that lasted until 2000 and at the end of which the two parted as friends.
“I’m very lucky that 31 years into our friendship, he’s still my best friend in the world. He’s a really great guy,” Hurley told E!‘s Daily Pop in March while promoting The Royals.
Grant, who is currently promoting his new BBC One drama A Very English Scandal, has two other children with socialite Tinglan Hong, whom he has dated for three years, from 2004 until 2007.
