The comic is looking forward to family life


admits he has put his wild partying behind him and is ready to settle down for good.

The Gavin
& Stacey
star, 32, asked pregnant girlfriend Julia Carey to marry him on Christmas Eve during a holiday in the Maldives.

‘Since meeting my girlfriend, and we live in a nice house in a nice place, I feel a lot more settled now than I ever have done,’ he says.

‘I feel like the luckiest man in the world.’

The comedian is looking forward to becoming a dad this year, but admits he’s not always felt ready for fatherhood.

‘I feel positive about things and having a baby feels lovely – but that’s not always been the case,’ he tells The Sun.

‘There are moments when I have thought “what am I doing?” and you can start to think that things matter more than they do.’
