ELIZABETH HURLEY intends to bring her baby up an American - and is already interviewing potential nannies in Los Angeles. The British model and actress is expecting her first child in April (2002), reportedly fathered by ex-boyfriend STEphEn BING, and is lining up a permanent male child-minder to help her out, as her work schedule puts massive demands on her time.
Hurley explained to a pal, "Los Angeles has its problems, but it's great to have a child. Being a mum is a full-time job, and with my busy schedule I don't think I'll be able to cope alone. I met a guy who would be a great nanny. He has all the necessary qualifications, comes highly recommended and is as cute as a button. I wouldn't mind having him around the house all day!"
There is one showbiz friend who will definitely be helping Liz out when she gives birth however - busty star PAMELA ANDERSON. She says, "Pam's a great mum and a good friend. I know we'll spend more time together after I become a mum. " (CPT/WNTST/MCM)
