Hugh Grant flashed his dopey grin as he paid a visit to his new child at his former fling Tinglan Hong's home
It looks like a scene from Notting Hill, fumbling around outside a house with a goofy grin, trying to get to the girl and avoid the glare of the spotlight.
But Hugh Grant is coming to terms with a very different reality other than larking about on a film set, by fathering a child and visiting his newborn.
Surprise news emerged yesterday that the Four Weddings And A Funeral star is now a daddy after a former flame gave birth in September.
The 51-year-old actor has put shooting of his current project on hold, flying over from Germany and on to UK shores to visit his child.
His co-stars won't be too impressed, with famous faces Halle Berry, Tom Hanks and Susan Sarandon also taking centre stage in Cloud Atlas.
But despite putting on a brave face and behaving responsibly, the British hunk barely had enough time for bathing the tot and a bedtime story.
Grant arrived at 7.20pm and had made his escape by 8.05pm, tallying up a rather measly 45 minutes.
He managed a smile for photographers, before looking a little bemused and heading into the house which had a Union Jack doormat.
Dressed down in jeans and a nondescript navy anorak, the Golden Globe-winner looked like any other father doing his daddy duties.
Grant has become a father for the first time after ex-girlfriend Tinglan Hong, 19 years his junior, gave birth following a 'fleeting affair'.
The pregnancy was not planned and the child, who has not been named, is now five weeks old after being born on September 26.
The king of rom-coms is not believed to have been present at the birth but he is said to have spent around half an hour with Hong the following day before heading to Scotland to play in a golf tournament.
Grant's spokesman said yesterday: 'I can confirm that Hugh Grant is the delighted father of a baby girl.
'He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive.'
They added: 'He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms.'
