Model and actress Liz Hurley is pregnant with her first child, her spokeswoman said Thursday.

Hurley, 36, and American movie producer Stephen Bing are expecting a baby in April, said spokeswoman Karin Smith.

Hurley, whose 13-year relationship with actor Hugh Grant ended last year, has appeared in movies including Bedazzled and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

She shot to fame after appearing in a memorable Versace dress at the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral, in which Grant starred, in 1994.

For several years she was the international face of Estee Lauder cosmetics.

Simian Films, the film company she set up with Grant, has produced Extreme Measures and Mickey Blue Eyes.

British newspapers have been reporting rumors of Hurley's pregnancy for weeks, backed up by pictures of the star wearing baggy clothes and sporting a fuller than usual figure.

Hurley initially denied the speculation, but Thursday Smith she was "absolutely thrilled" about the news.

Bing, 35, is a multimillionaire Hollywood producer and grandson of New York real estate magnate Leo Bing.
