Damian Hurley has posted a perfect photo alongside Shane Warne’s three children in a moment that would have filled the cricket legend with joy.
Damian Hurley has posted a heart-melting photo of him hanging out with Shane Warne’s children.
The 20-year-old model shared photos on Instagram on Saturday, showing his special night out with Jackson Warne, Brooke Warne and Summer Warne at an Ed Sheeran concert in London.
Damian, the son of Hollywood star Liz Hurley — Shane Warne’s former partner — referred to Warne as a “father figure” when the cricket icon died in March.
Warne was engaged to Elizabeth Hurley, 57, before their relationship ended in 2013.
The Aussie sporting hero would have been overcome with joy at seeing his children and Hurley refer to each other as “family”.
Damian wrote next to one of the photos: “Beautiful night with my beautiful family. thank you for having us”.
He shared some other photos of him hanging out with friends and his extended family and also posted brief clips which showed Sheeran rocking out in the middle of the concert at Wembley Arena.
Jackson also shared one photo of the night, showing him arm in arm with Damian.
The photos would also have filled Elizabeth Hurley’s heart.
She was famously too emotional to travel to Australia for Warne’s State Funeral at the MCG.
In the days after Warne died of a suspected heart attack in Thailand on March 5, Hurley posted a tribute to her followers.
“I feel like the sun has gone behind a cloud forever. RIP my beloved Lionheart,” she wrote.
She reached out to Warne’s youngest daughter Summer in the days after the cricket legend’s death.
Their messages on social media in March show how close the family was — and still is.
Hurley commented on the post: “I love you, Summer. Your daddy worshipped you.”
Brother Jackson replied: “I love you Summer, I’m always going to be here for you.”
Summer replied to Hurley, writing: “@elizabethhurley1love u so much.”
Hurley also responded to Jackson’s emotional Instagram post about his dad, writing, “I love you, Jackson” with a heart emoji.
Damian also posted on Instagram about Warne, uploading a series of happy snaps with the former leg-spinner.
“I’m still trying to wrap my head around this … SW was a father figure to me for most of my formative years and was truly one the best men I’ve ever known,” Damian wrote.
“My heart is broken. Thinking of and sending love to all SW’s family.”
Warne and Hurley started dating in 2010, with the Aussie cricketer proposing to the British actress in September the following year but despite buying a home together, they split in 2013 before making it down the aisle.
