It's a boy for Hugh Grant.

The "Four Weddings and a Funeral" actor used his Twitter account Saturday to announce that he and Tinglan Hong have welcomed their second child:

He added: "To be crystal clear, I am the Daddy."

Hong gave birth to their first child, a daughter, in 2011.

The 52-year-old actor, a critic of what he sees as press intrusion, told Britain's media ethics inquiry that he and Hong had been harassed by paparazzi when their daughter was born.

He joined Twitter last year to promote press reform in the wake of Britain's tabloid phone hacking scandal.
