Britain's Got Talent star David Walliams has become a father for the first time.

His wife, model Lara Stone, has given birth to a boy, it has been confirmed. The couple married three years ago in London.

A spokeswoman for Dutch fashion model Stone, 29, said: "We can confirm they have had a baby boy." She said they had no further details about the baby or the birth. A spokeswoman for Walliams did not wish to comment.

Walliams later acknowledged the birth by posting a picture of a floral bouquet on Twitter which he said was from BGT boss Simon Cowell. The bunch featured white roses with what appeared to be sprigs of rosemary, lavender and mint.

Thanking Cowell, he wrote: "Someone always has to show off and send the biggest bouquet."

Fellow Britain's Got Talent star Amanda Holden said she was thrilled to hear about the birth and sent a message on Twitter saying: "Love love love to them all."

Walliams, who is currently on screen as a judge in the latest series of ITV's talent series, is also the author of a series of best-selling children's books. The 41-year-old's novel Gangsta Granny is to be adapted by BBC1 to be screened this Christmas.

Walliams, who found national fame on BBC comedy show Little Britain, announced he and Stone were to become parents with a message on Twitter in November. Walliams)
