Hugh Grant reveals rare insight into parenting kids Tabitha, Felix, and John

Arguably one of Hugh Grant's most memorable scenes throughout his acting career is, when playing England's Prime Minister in Love Actually, he stops the seriousness for a moment and has a dance sesh around 10 Downing to the Pointer Sisters.

Twenty years later, many still don't let him forget it, despite his admitted hesitancy to let loose.

Such was the case during his latest appearance on The View on Wednesday, March 16th, during which he admitted he has, actually, "loosened up over the years," despite his childrens' apparent dislike of it.

Speaking of some of his dancing scenes in movies, he even confessed: "Now I can't really stop! If I hear music I dance, even if it's in Starbucks, I will dance."

However, he revealed it isn't entirely appreciated, particularly by his children, and he added: "My children beg me to stop. 'Please daddy, it's embarrassing,' [they say.]"

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the actress cheekily joked: "He had another one last week," adding: "He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all."

He also shares two kids with Tinglan, who he had a "fleeting affair" with, according to his publicist. Tabitha, 11, was born in September of 2011, and Felix, 10, was born in December 2012.
