Hugh Grant might finally be ready to settle down, that is, if he can find time to find a girlfriend in between golf games. The Hollywood bachelor, whose relationships with actress Elizabeth Hurley and socialite Jemima Khan crashed and burned because he didn't want to get serious, says now he's had some experience with his nieces and nephews and thinks he might be okay at the whole fatherhood thing.

But the 49-year-old actor admits he would employ a team of nannies to help raise his offspring. Hugh, who is currently single, said: “Ten years ago, I wouldn’t have thought about having children at all. But now I have so many nephews and nieces and cousins and godchildren, I like the thought. But that’s on the basis that I can leave after ten minutes. I don’t know what it would be like 24 hours a day. I think I’d have a lot of nannies.”

Asked if he still believes he will raise a family of his own, he added to Parade magazine: “Yes, yes, yes. I have not given up hope! I find I’m not as bad with children as I used to be.”

The Music and Lyrics star even has theories on how to raise the perfect child, by not smothering them with love. He explained: “If you have a smothering parent, the effect it can apparently have on a child is to give them, in equal doses, a sense of too much self-esteem, because they are mummy’s little princess or prince, and low self-esteem. It affects future relationships.”
