Hugh Grant is getting married for the first time at age 57.
The Notting Hill star is set to tie the knot with Anna Eberstein, just months after they welcomed their third child together.
The actor, who stars in new BBC drama A Very English Scandal, welcomed his fifth child in March, with the Swedish TV producer, 35.
Now, they’ll become man and wife after locking in the ceremony at Chelsea register office.
The official notice of their upcoming nuptials was on display at Chelsea Old Town Hall, not far from their £10 million home.
It comes as a shock to his friends, who reportedly never thought he’d get married.
He himself once called marriage "unromantic", saying: "Do I think humans are meant to be in a 40-year-long faithful relationship? No, no, no."
A source told The Sun on Sunday : "This is a day none of Hugh’s friends ever thought would come. He will soon be a pensioer and has finally become a family man."
Hugh and Anna also share son John, five, and a daughter, two, whose name is unknown.
He’s also father to Tabitha, six, and five-year-old Felix, whom he shares with ex Tinglan Hong.
The actor famously dated Elizabeth Hurley, and it was she who revealed his fifth child had been born.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in March, she was asked whether or not she was surprised by the amount of children he’s had.
She said: "He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all."
She said it’s not a shock, adding: "No, he’s an enchanting dad. Really, really sweet."
She went on: "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."
It was confirmed in January that Hugh was expecting his fifth child in less than seven years after Anna’s mother Susanne Eberstein confirmed the news to Swedish media.
"I’m very happy to be getting another grand child," she told Aftonbladet .
"She’s due rather soon."
Mirror Online has contacted Hugh’s representatives for comment.
