DNA tests have proved conclusively that Steve Bing IS the father of Elizabeth Hurley's baby, Damian.

The test results were released this morning after a hearing at the Family Division of the High Court in London.

"Recently conducted tests have shown that Steve Bing is the biological father of Elizabeth Hurley's son, Damian Charles Hurley," said Bing's spokeswoman.

Lawyers for the pair have said that this will be the only statement released from either party, for the sake of the child.

Hurley has always maintained that Bing is the father, although he said that they weren't in an exclusive relationship at the time of conception.

Nonetheless, he has previously said that should it be proved he is the father, he will provide child support.

Entrepreneur Bing is due to inherit hundreds of millions of pounds. This could mean a mammoth payout for Liz.

Bing is currently in the U.S. Neither parent was at the results hearing.
