Date: 9th April 2002
New mum Elizabeth Hurley is to stay in her luxury hospital until then end of the week (14th April 2002). The 36-year-old actress, who gave birth to Damian Charles on Thursday (4th April 2002), is in no rush to exit her $1,400 (£1,000)-a- night room in London's Portland hospital.
The Austin Powers - International Man of Mystery (1997) star had had talks with medical bosses in the weeks leading up to the birth, and even chose exactly when to have her caesarian. Since then she has been unsettled by the arrest of a stalker outside her home, and is thought to be spending her time negotiating a $2.1 million (£1.5 million) deal with celebrity magazine OK! for the first shots of her new arrival. The hospital offers all the comforts of a five-star resort, including an extensive gourmet menu.
