Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne are going to be engaged for "a while"
The `Gossip Girl` actress - who split from her first husband, textile heir Arun Nayar, last December, with their divorce completed in the summer - got engaged to the former cricketer earlier this month, but she admitted the pair are not going to rush into a wedding.
The 46-year-old star told You magazine: "It`s a very exciting time for me and Shane. We aren`t making any immediate plans to get married - we`re going to enjoy being engaged for a while."
Elizabeth - who has a nine-year-old son, Damian, with former flame Steve Bing, while Shane has children Brooke, Summer and Jackson with his ex-wife Simone Callahan - said the 42-year-old sportsman makes her feel "happy" and she his glad her son gets along well with Shane`s kids.
She added: "We both want to spend more time with each other`s families, and Damian and I are looking forward to visiting Australia together in the near future.
"Shane makes me happy. We have a lot of fun together, we laugh a lot and that`s very important to me. I couldn`t put up with the `serious` for too long."
"My family and my new family with Shane and his kids are what`s important. His children are really beautiful, sweet and affectionate. They get on brilliantly with Damian, and as an only child, it`s great for him to have them around when they come to stay.
"I love having a lot of people in the house - the more the merrier."
