Elizabeth Hurley and Steve Bing were an item in 2001, and a year later she gave birth to their son, Damian Charles Hurley. Bing initially denied paternity, but a DNA test proved he was the child's father.
In 2001, he became British tabloid fodder after actress, model, and Estee Lauder spokesmodel Elizabeth Hurley announced she was pregnant and claimed Bing was the father of the baby. Bing denied he was the father and claimed they did not have an "exclusive" relationship. A DNA test proved that Bing was indeed the father. His son Damian Charles Hurley was born on April 4, 2002 and it is not known whether he has any relationship with his son. Damian's godfathers include Hurley's long-time ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant, Elton John, and actor Denis Leary. Hurley married Arun Nayar in 2007. London's Daily Mail said that Hurley and her friends referred to Bing as "Bing Laden".
