David Walliams and wife Lara Stone are expecting

News is out that comedian David Walliams and model wife, Lara Stone are expecting and the baby is due next year. David tweeted the happy news to his fans saying: “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 happy couple also released a statement together on Thursday announcing their joy at having a baby. “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!”

David recently spoke out about his battle with depression in his autobiography Camp David where he says frankly that the depression caused him to try and commit suicide several times. So, the news of the baby must have put him on an “euphoric high” and that is a good thing. The couple are already parents to pet pooch Bert and Lara has even gone so far as to call herself, “Bert’s mum” on Twitter. Bert wines and dines at only the best places in town and leads a life that one can only dream of. Lara has said that the difference between looking after an animal and having a child is that “A baby will probably never be as fun as Bert.”

Perhaps, she’ll change her mind now seeing as one is on the way, a baby that is. Think of it this way, if “Bert The Pooch” has a life made in heaven, how much more so a baby?

We wish them all the best.
