Updated LHC data on the new 126 GeV boson during the 7 and 8 TeV runnings strengthen the standard model Higgs boson interpretation further. Through global χ 2 fit analysis, we investigate whether the new particle could be one of the scalar particles in two Higgs doublet models. Four types of the model (I, II, X and Y) are comprehensively studied. Considering the recent analysis on the spin-parity of the new boson, we take two scenarios: it is either the lighter CP-even one or the heavier CP-even one. It is found that the current LHC Higgs data constrain the model quite strongly. Only narrow region along the decoupling line and a separate small island are allowed in Type II, X, and Y. Type I is exceptional with much larger allowed space. We also find that the current data are compatible with the possibility that the light Higgs boson h 0 is hidden in the mass window of 90-100 GeV.
