LONDON (AP) _ Model and actress Elizabeth Hurley gave birth to a boy Thursday, and both were ``happy and healthy,'' a spokeswoman said in a statement.

Hurley, whose movie credits include ``Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery'' and ``Bedazzled'' has said the father of the child was her former boyfriend, American film producer Stephen Bing.

Bing released a statement in December saying he and Hurley ``were not in an exclusive relationship when she became pregnant.''

The 36-year-old Estee Lauder cosmetics spokesmodel ended her 13-year relationship with actor Hugh Grant in 2000.
