Tinglan Hong Biography 

Tinglan Hong was born in April 1980 in East China, in the People’s Republic of China (P.R.C.), and is 43 years old. She spent her formative years in China but relocated to the United Kingdom in 2003 at 24. A Lishui, Zhejiang province of Eastern China native, Hong holds Chinese citizenship by birth with ancestry traced back to East Asia. She has a white skin color, a pair of aesthetic brown eyes, and long black hair. 

Looking at her profile parameters, Tinglan stands about 1.7 meters or 170 centimeters above the ground, approximately five feet seven inches. She has a slim body physique with a body weight of 127 pounds, equivalent to 58 kilograms, and body measurements of 34 inches, 25 inches (waist size), and 34 inches, respectively. Also, she has a shoe size of 8 (U.S.). 

A Chinese Nationale, Tinglan had her Elementary School and High School education in East China. She would later proceed to the prestigious University of Surrey in China, where she obtained a higher education degree. 

At the age of twenty-three, Tinglan moved to Britain, where she started a career in the hospitality sector. She worked as a waitress in a Chinese restaurant based in London. Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Tinglan is an entrepreneur herself. Tinglan met her now ex-boyfriend while she worked as a restaurant hostess. 

While details about Tinglan’s professional and personal life are mysterious, another report claims she was an actress at a point. Still, Tinglan is reluctant about claims written about her, regardless of how they may look. We could not confirm that she has ever worked in the movies because she has yet to be listed as a cast member in any movies, films, television series, or web series.
From what we gathered, Tinglan was the director of now dissolved Bamboo Icon Ltd, a media consulting company she founded in 2015.

Tinglan Hong’s Relationship with Hugh Grant

Tinglan Hong and Hugh Grant started dating in 2011 when Hong was 32 years old, and Grant was 51 years old. Although the media tried to make a case about their age difference as much as they had labeled Grant a “playboy,” the lovers neither said a word nor raised a brow. Instead, they continued their relationship and would later get caught by the media — captured on camera for the first time, where they were seen kissing each other at a pub in Fulham, South-West London. Grant and Hong continued seeing each other, nonetheless, as the media often caught Hong in Grant’s home in West London, the United Kingdom. 

As their relationship became more intense, Hugh Grant took a break from the movies to vacation with Tinglan. By their vocations ended, Hong was already pregnant and would give birth in September 2011. Barely a year after they had their first child, the lovers pathed ways but reunited a year later. At this time, Hugh was already romantically involved with Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein. He continued his relationship with Tinglan, notwithstanding that Anna Eberstein and Tinglan got pregnant simultaneously. 

Tinglan Hong’s romantic relationship with actor Hugh Grant gave birth to two children — one son and one daughter. Felix Chang Hong Grant and Tabitha Xaioxi Grant (born in September 2011) are their names, respectively. According to sources, Hugh Grant was an irresponsible parent to his children and was reluctant about their upbringing because of his numerous relationships with other women aside from Tinglan. 

Tinglan gave birth to her second child and only son, Felix Chang Hong Grant, three months after Anna Eberstein gave birth to her son, John Mungo Grant. According to sources, Tinglan Hong’s ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant is now married to Anna Eberstein ​(married since 2018). Grant was previously married to Elizabeth Hurley (married between 1987 and 2000). 

And speaking of numerous relationships and irresponsible parents, Hugh Grant was romantically involved with another woman when he was having an affair with Tinglan. Because of this, Tinglan and his other girlfriend, Anna Eberstein, became pregnant at the same time, which would later become one of the most searched and written stories as the media went into a frenzy with several news platforms striving to know more about this rare occurrence.
