London: Liz Hurley, who is head-over-heels in love with Shane Warne, is apparently having a tough time convincing the spin king's children.
She arrived back from a romantic trip to see cricket legend Warne in Australia where she met his three children for the first time.
Hurley has told friends that she and Warne are still an item but she has a long way to go before his children accept that she is not a 'scarlet woman' who stole their father from their mother.
"They're very upset about the fact Shane and their mother split up and struggling with it all. Children and teenagers tend to see the world in black or white terms. But they acted very maturely and managed to be civil to Liz when they met," The Mirror quoted a friend of Hurley's as saying.
"But they were very sombre and Shane noticed they weren't very happy.
"Liz expected it to be hard - they're not going to like her overnight. But she really has fallen for their dad and wants to make it work," said the friend.
"It sounds like a cliche, but Liz thinks she can tame him. She honestly couldn't be happier. She thinks she's found a guy on the same wavelength. She's got a spring in her step now and it's great to see her full of life once more," the friend added.
