When Elizabeth Hurley began dating textile heir Arun Nayar — whom she eventually married in 2007 — the beauty and culture of India found its way into the model’s life. Although her first visit to India was with ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant almost 20 years ago, Elizabeth and Arun, along with Elizabeth’s 6 ½-year-old son Damian Charles, find themselves visiting "a few times a year." According to a pleasantly surprised Elizabeth, she finds her trips equally "fresh and exciting" each and every time.
Damian’s love for India has grown so much over the years that recently, after Elizabeth found herself feeling too sick to fly and was forced to postpone the trip by a few days, her son was more than disappointed. "Damian loves India and he was devastated to miss a few days," shares the 43-year-old actress in the newest issue of Hello! magazine. Hours on a flight to the foreign country seems to be no hassle for the family of three, as Damian has become an expert traveler, reports the proud mama, who says her son "behaves impeccably on planes." While taking advantage of the many fun adventures to India, it seems that Damian has also quite happily adopted several of their cultural aspects as well! Elizabeth shares,
"He was hoping to wear his embroidered pink wedding coat to the lighting ceremony at the Taj hotel, but sadly we couldn’t squeeze him into it. Luckily we found a pink turban for him."
Damian’s love for all things fancy is evident in his mom’s sense of style as well. After receiving much scrutiny recently following her choice of a very tight, revealing dress, Elizabeth claims that the two main men in her life — Arun and Damian — were thrilled with the gown that evening, although Liz agrees "it looked insanely tight." In fact, if left up to her husband and her son, the model admits that she would be a walking fashion doll! "If I let the two of them style me, I’d be a full-time Barbie doll," laughs Elizabeth, who reveals she would "love another" baby.
Damian is Elizabeth’s son with film producer Stephen Bing.
