Elizabeth Hurley engaged to Australian cricket player
Elizabeth Hurley accepted Australian cricket player Shane Warne’s proposal over the weekend, says the Daily Caller. After dating for 10 months, Warne proposed to Hurley after a romantic dinner at the Old Course Hotel in Scotland. Hurley thanked her fans for their congratulations via Twitter on Saturday, posting a picture of herself and Warne about to attend the dinner after which he proposed down on one knee.
Both Hurley and Warne have been married once before. Hurley divorced her first husband Arun Nayar in December of 2010, and began dating Shane Warne shortly after. This spurred skepticism that the two had been having an affair, but Hurley was quick to post on Twitter that her relationship to Nayar had been over before the gossip-starting pictures of her smooching Warne were taken. On December 12, she tweeted, “my husband Arun and I separated a few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware of this.”
The 46-year-old British model and actress is known for roles in “Austin Powers” and “Bedazzled,” but rose to fame by simply being the hot girlfriend of Hugh Grant in the ‘90s. Hurley dated Grant for 13 years and famously dismissed him in 2000 after he allegedly solicited a female prostitute. She has one child, fathered by wealthy businessman Steve Bing, and is currently a cast member of “Gossip Girl”.”
