British model Elizabeth Hurley has charmed boyfriend Arun Nayar's Indian parents so much, they offered to babysit her son DAMIEN while she travelled to Australia.

The actress met her beau of two years' parents for the first time in the businessman's homeland this month (OCT04) and got on so well, she entrusted them with the care of her toddler in India while she flew to Sydney for an Estee Lauder promotional tour.

On Thursday (28OCT04) Hurley wowed shoppers at the DAVID JONES department store to launch the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, which has a special meaning for the English beauty after she lost her grandmother to the disease.

Following her store appearance, Hurley and Nayar bathed in the spring sunshine as they cruised Sydney Harbour on a yacht before having lunch overlooking the city's famous Bondi Beach.
