Grant hosts daughter's Christening

British actor Hugh Grant has thrown a Christening ceremony for his baby daughter in a quiet English village close to the home of his ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley.

The Four Weddings and a Funeral star became a first-time father last year (11) when he welcomed a little girl called Tabitha following a "fleeting affair" with former model Tinglan Hong.


Grant has now celebrated the birth with a Christening at St. Mary's Church in the small village of Ampney Crucis, in the English Cotswolds region.


The baptism was conducted by Reverend John Swanton, who tells Britain's Sunday Express, "The service was a traditional one and the baby was absolutely delightful."


After the ceremony, guests were invited to a celebratory party at the home of Grant's former partner Hurley, who owns a farm nearby.
