David Walliams And Lara Stone Expecting Baby

Comedian David Walliams and his wife Lara Stone have announced they are expecting their first child.

The Little Britain star and Britain's Got Talent judge told his fans the news on Twitter.

The 40-year-old 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" .

Walliams, who swam the English Channel and River Thames for charity, married Dutch model Stone, 28, two years ago.

Earlier this year he admitted he has battled depression and attempted suicide several times.

A statement released by the couple said: "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."
