Baby boy for Walliams and Stone

David Walliams has become a father for the first time.

His wife, model Lara Stone, has given birth to a boy, it has been confirmed.

The couple married three years ago in London. A spokeswoman for Dutch fashion model Lara, 29, said: "We can confirm they have had a baby boy."

She said they had no further details about the baby or the birth. A spokeswoman for Walliams did not wish to comment.

David, who is currently on screen as a judge in the latest series of ITV show Britain's Got Talent, is also the author of a series of best-selling children's books.

The TV star, who found national fame on BBC comedy show Little Britain, announced he and Lara were to become parents with a message on Twitter in November.

In a recent TV interview he said he would be unlikely to give the child an unusual name. He told Alan Carr on his Channel 4 show Chatty Man: "It's a bit of a curse if you're called Apple or Peaches or something like that. I think we're just going to go with a normal name."

David acknowledged the birth by posting a picture of a floral bouquet on Twitter which he said was from BGT boss Simon Cowell. The bunch featured white roses with what appeared to be sprigs of rosemary, lavender and mint.

Thanking Simon, he wrote: "Someone always has to show off and send the biggest bouquet."

Fellow Britain's Got Talent star Amanda Holden said she was thrilled to hear about the birth and sent a message on Twitter saying: "Love love love to them all."
