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.

‘‘We can confirm they have had a baby boy,’’ a spokeswoman for Dutch fashion model Stone, 29, said.


She said they had no further details about the baby or the birth. A spokeswoman for Walliams did not wish to comment.

Walliams acknowledged the birth by posting a picture of a floral bouquet on Twitter which he said was from Britain’s Got Talent 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.’’
