Elizabeth Hurley Engaged To Retired The Australian Cricketer Shane Warne

Actress and Model Elizabeth Hurley is engaged to retired the Australian cricketer Shane Warne, the couple confirmed via Twitter.

The 'Gossip Girl' actress was photographed by British newspapers wearing an engagement ring on Saturday at the Dunhill Links Championship golf tournament in Scotland, in which Shane Warne was participating.

Elizabeth Hurley, 46 and Shane Warne, 42, thanked well-wishers on Saturday via Twitter and Warne tweeted on Sunday he proposed 'privately' and it 'was very romantic'.

The couple have been quietly dating since late 2010, after Hurley separated from her husband of four years, Indian textile businessman Arun Nayar. They divorced in June.

Elizabeth Hurley famously dated British actor Hugh Grant for more than 10 years, and also has a son from a previous relationship with film producer Steve Bing.

Shane Warne, a former international cricket star and specialist spin bowler, is divorced and has three children.
