Tongues wag as Hurley shows off bulge
Actress Liz Hurley is back in news. No, not with the much-expected announcement of a wedding date with Indian businessman Arun Nayar.
Instead, at a fashion show in Milan on Sunday she looked 'swell', sparking rumours she is pregnant.
The usually svelte beauty, 40, Hurley who prides in living on one meal a day, wore a figure-hugging dress, which showed the telltale sign of a slight bump.
Hurley, who is engaged to Nayar, has so far not made any comment but friends expect a formal announcement within weeks. One onlooker at the Versace event in Milan, said, "She's famous for being fantastically trim but her bulge was unmistakable. It certainly got tongues wagging."
Speculation heightened last week when she, Arun and her son Damian spent five days in Swiss ski resort St Moritz but she refused to go on the slopes. Instead she spent her time on the phone and playing with Damien, son of US millionaire Steve Bing.
Hurley and Nayar who have been together for three years, have spoken earlier of their desire to have a baby. During Arun's divorce from Italian model Valentina Pedroni, 34, he accused her of refusing his "natural craving to have a child".
Last month Hurley, confessed, "Arun really wants one. I've discovered what a joy children are, so we'll see. I'd secretly like twins."
