The Australian sports star proposed to Hurley last month (Sep11) after a whirlwind romance, but the couple has yet to set a date for the wedding.
Hurley has opened up about the romance in a new interview with Britain’s You magazine, revealing her son Damian has bonded well with Warne’s three children and gushing: “It’s a very exciting time for me and Shane.”
She adds, “We aren’t making any immediate plans to get married – we’re going to enjoy being engaged for a while. 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.
“It definitely helps that Shane has three children – and he’s a very good dad. We both understand that if there’s a child’s football game one of us can’t miss, then that’s it, it’s not up for negotiation, we go home and do it. I think it would be difficult for me to be with somebody who didn’t have kids.
“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.
“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 ‘serious’ for too long.”
