The comic is now a dad

David Walliams is celebrating the arrival of his first child with wife Lara Stone.

The couple’s friend Teresa Baca – who’s signed to the same model agency as Lara, 29 – broke the news on Twitter that they’d become parents on Sunday. 

‘Congratulations to Lara Stone and David Walliams who had a baby boy yesterday,’ Tweeted Teresa.

David, 41, married Lara at London’s Claridge’s Hotel in May 2010 and announced that she was pregnant last November.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge has been flooded with congratulatory messages since becoming a dad – with some jokers speculating that he may name his son after boss Simon Cowell.

‘Congratulations to David. Will he call him Simon?’ Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘@davidwalliams congratulations on the birth of your son ! What are you going to call him ? Simon ?’
