Liz Hurley and Shane Warne to marry next year — twice!

Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne don’t want to disappoint any friends or family members when they tie the knot next year, so the international couple are planning weddings in both her native Britain and Australia.

The couple, whose first Australian interview together is exclusively in this week’s Woman’s Day (out Friday!), are said to be “extremely happy”.

VOTE: What is the number one thing you love most about Shane Warne since he has been dating Elizabeth Hurley?

“I think we just ‘get’ each other,” 42-year-old Shane told Woman’s Day.

“I understand why Elizabeth and I getting together initially seemed strange to some people and why it created a lot of interest. We are from different worlds, but funnily enough they are very much the same, too.”

Speaking of this week’s exciting Australian exclusive, Woman’s Day editor Fiona Connolly said:

“It doesn’t get much bigger than this for Australian magazines. Shane and Elizabeth are one of the world’s most intriguing couples. The story of their romance, engagement and blended family has remained untold — until now.

“You’ve seen Shane Warne wearing many hats from cricket hero to Aussie larrikin but this is a side of him you could never have imagined.

Woman’s Day readers will be surprised by how honest the couple are about everything from his colourful romantic past, their ex’s, jealousy between the kids, how she’s changed him and even plastic surgery.”

In the article, Elizabeth and Shane also reveal their special names for each other: she calls him the “Big Blond” while his nickname for her is “Luna” — after the fairground Luna Park.

“Elizabeth calls me a lot more than just the Big Blond — she has dozens of names for me, all of them too embarrassing to share,” Shane tells Woman’s Day.

“I have a handful for her, too, but I usually call her Luna as there was a terrible paparazzi picture of her once looming in to kiss me, which reminded me of the massive mouth at the entrance of Luna Park.”
