David Walliams and his wife Lara Stone have announced they are having a baby. The Little Britain star, who has also featured on the judging panel of Britain's Got Talent, revealed the news on Twitter.
He said: "Some wonderful news. My beautiful wife Lara is pregnant. We are having a baby! It is due next year and we both couldn't be happier. Dx" .
The couple released a statement on Thursday announcing the happy news, which read: "We're very excited to announce we are expecting our first child. We're both absolutely thrilled but ask you to please respect our privacy during this precious time."
As well as being a comedian, David has his own series children's book that will come in handy once the baby arrives. He will be able to read the newborn titles such as The Boy in The Dress or Gangsta Granny, his fourth book to date.
On her Twitter account model Lara already classifies herself as a mum, after the happy couple welcomed dog Bert into their lives earlier this year. She recently joked about the differences between looking after an animal and having a child: "a baby will probably never be as fun as Bert."
The cute Border Terrier is often seen out on the town with them, dining in fancy restaurants or attending social events. He is also a regular on their Twitter, the couple frequently post snaps of the canine.
David, who earlier this year said he has battled depression and tried to commit suicide several times, married the Dutch model two years ago at Claridge's hotel in central London.
The bride, 26, wore a £30-000 fitted cream wedding dress created by Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy.
She reportedly wept as she and her comedian love – dressed in a grey morning suit - exchanged vows in the ballroom of the five star hotel, which was filled with £10,000 white roses. Onlookers said that "for once David looked incredibly nervous" ahead of the ceremony.
Guests at the event included Geri Halliwell, Elton John and David Furnish, Natalie Imbruglia and Noel Gallagher, who all tucked into lobster salad and seared sea bass at the reception.
Guest Ronnie Corbett described the day as one of "loveliness and glamour from a day gone by. I've never been to a more beautiful service in my whole life, it was perfect from beginning to end," he said.
And the father of the bride, Michael Stone, was equally as delighted with proceedings. "Lara looked beautiful and it was a wonderful day," said the proud dad. "There were so many lovely moments and I can tell you both Lara and David are over the moon."
