Hugh married Anna, who is a TV producer, in 2018, having already had three children together.
It appears the claim originates from comments that Hugh made about the couple’s experiences of passport control before they were married, that have been misconstrued.
He told USA Today shortly after their wedding: “My wife agrees with me that marriage is a pretty preposterous social construct, but when you’ve got three children, it’s a nice thing to do.”
He continued: “I didn’t like going through immigration into countries where they’d say, ‘Everyone with a Grant passport, over here, and all the others through there.’
“She went through with the nannies. That seemed all wrong.”
