Spin legend Shane Warne may have foxed some of the best batsmen in the world, but making actress-model Elizabeth Hurley fall in love with him wasn't easy for the Aussie leg-spinner. As the two get set to walk down the aisle, here's a look at how their love story unfolded.
In July, 2010, Shane Warne and Liz Hurley met at an English racing event.
October 2010: Twitter became the hub for the two. On the 19th, Hurley asked Warne to post a photo of himself in his underwear. This is followed by a series of tweets.
In November 2010, Warne sparked off rumours as he interviewed Hurley on his chat show 'Warnie'.
In December, images of Shane Warne kissing Liz Hurley were released. Hurley also confirmed that her marriage with Arun Nayar was over.
In the following days, Warne also revealed that he had split with wife Simone a few months back.
Media reports said that an angry Hurley dumped Warne after learning he had sent lewd text messages to a married Australian woman. Warne tweeted his despair, "The journey of life is about riding its ups/downs. We are all childish, immature at times. It's about how you bounce back when things are tough."
In January 2011, Twitter witnessed the resurrection of their romance as rumours of the two getting back together spread.
In February 2011, Media reports suggest that Warne was two-timing London-based Aussie porn star Chloe Conrad with Hurley. Both Warne and Hurley rubbish the newspaper reports and carry on dating.
In April 2011, the picture starts to get clearer as Hurley travels to India to support Warne during IPL Season 4.
The couple was photographed kissing in public, making the relationship official.
In September 2011, in an interview, Warne says, "I think Liz is annoyed about reports that she's the person who's changed me."
Warne, having lost 22 pounds, tells a radio station the "radiant glow" of love might have something to do with the change in his looks. "Being in love with somebody is a wonderful feeling. I am lucky to have met Elizabeth...," said Warne.
On Friday evening (September 30), Warne proposed to Hurley after a romantic dinner.
On October 1, Hurley showed off her giant engagement ring while the couple were pictured at a golf course in Scotland.
Media reports say that the couple will get married in winter.
