Elizabeth Hurley has met Shane Warne's parents.

The model-and actress - who rekindled her romance with the Australian cricketer last month - was introduced to Shane's mother and father, Keith and Bridgette, at his Melbourne home yesterday (08.02.11).

The meeting seemed to go well as Brigitte was spotted with a huge smile on her face as she left her son's home, suggesting she approved of his new girlfriend.

Elizabeth - who parted ways with Shane in December after it emerged the sportsman had been sending lewd text messages to another woman while he was romancing the 45-year-old star - flew into Melbourne two days ago to be reunited with her lover after spending a couple of weeks apart.

While Elizabeth has been introduced to Shane's parents, the 'Austin Powers.' actress is keen for Shane to meet a very important individual in her life - her pet parrot Ping Pong.

Addressing the sportsman, she wrote on her twitter page: "@warne888 Ping Pong would love to peck you-you'd be her first blonde. (sic)"

Shane believes he will Bond well with the bird - who is actually female - and laughed off the 'Bedazzled' star's comment.

He tweeted in response: "I think ping pong would like me so he wouldn't peck me.

"I think i want to hear more about ping pong ! Is he sweet ? Has he spoken yet or still sussing you out and pecking u ? (sic)"

Elizabeth - who has eight-year-old son Damian with former boyfriend Steve Bing - announced in December she had split from husband Arun Nayar "several months ago" after she was romantically linked with Shane, who she first met last July.
