eLIZabeth HURLEY has taken her former boyfriend HUGH GRANT to her first pre-natal check up - with the baby's father STEVE BING nowhere in sight. Hurley, who has admitted she is three months pregnant with her American lover's child, has turned to Grant, who she dated for 13 years, to hold her hand through her first scans.
The austin powers - International Man of Mystery (1997) beauty, who split from Grant in May last year (00) amid reports of differences over parenthood issues, has dated a string of men since. But friends insist it's only natural for NOTTING HILL (1999) star Grant to step in and support the ESTEE LAUDER model through her pregnancy.
One pal says, "Elizabeth is still incredibly close to Hugh, and to her it was perfectly natural that he should be there when she went for her scan. He is very happy for her and was the first to congratulate her. "
The baby is due in April (02).
