Elizabeth Hurley: Damian Doesn’t Want A Sibling

Could there be another baby on the way for model mom Elizabeth Hurley? Not if her 7-year-old son Damian has anything to say about it!

Elizabeth says that she and her husband Arun Nayar haven’t ruled out the idea of having a child, but admits that Damian, whose dad is Liz’s ex Steve Bing, has made it known that he doesn’t want a sibling.

“We’re in two minds about this,” the 44-year-old Estée Lauder spokeswoman says of having a baby. “Damian doesn’t want us to add to our family under any circumstances – he wants to remain the golden prince! He says, ‘Mummy, our family is big enough!’ We toy with the idea, but we’re not sure.”

Elizabeth and Arun tied the knot in 2007.

    A child that doesn´t want a sibling I think is the one who needs it the most.

    I think it is not the role of a child to decide!

    I actually think you should honor that child’s wishes. He’s 7 already. It’s not like he’ll be very likely to be close to a sibling at this point. All it will do is cause resentment. I don’t think any child “needs” a sibling. I had one, and I’m not close to him at all. We don’t talk, we have nothing in common, and when we do spend time together, it is forced and awkward. Not everyone has a special bond with siblings.

    Linda, my thoughts exactly. A child who doesn’t want a sibling is probably one that should have one 😉 People can argue that they didn’t get along with their siblings AT ALL and yes that’s possible, but I’d say 95% of the time siblings are your first and best friends when it comes down to it.

    I wouldn’t want a younger sibling either. I have two older brothers (when I went to Kindergarten my older brother graduated) and although i’m close to them, I was pretty much raised as an only child b/c I was the youngest and the only girl. So I understand why he wouldn’t want a sibling. Once you get used to being the only child and the youngest, you don’t want the focus on anyone else. I have a 2 year old nephew and that’s as close to having a younger sibling as it’s gonna get, and sometimes I don’t mind him having all the attention at times.
