Hugh Grant is one proud papa -- of two.

On Saturday, the British actor beat the press and made a special announcement on Twitter on the birth of his second child.

“In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother,” he wrote. “Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum . . . And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.”

Grant, 52, became a father for the first time back in September 2011, when Tinglan Hong -- 19 years his junior -- gave birth to their daughter Tabitha.

The announcement was not made until months later by Grant’s rep, who left out Hong’s name at the time.

“He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive. He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms,” the rep said in a statement.

Last spring, Grant spoke openly about his daughter during a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“It's a very nice surprise . . . everyone was right all these years, saying ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life’ . . . now that I have one, it is life changing, I recommend it.”
