David Walliams 'nervous but excited about the baby'
Tuesday 20 November 2012
TV star Amanda Holden says fellow Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams is nervous but excited about becoming a father for the first time.
The Little Britain star has announced that he and supermodel wife Lara Stone are to become parents.
Holden, who with Walliams has been rehearsing for this year's Royal Variety Performance, said she had seen scans of the "good-looking" - and tall - baby.
She said: "He's delighted. I think he's nervous. We saw some really cute scan pictures the other day.
"It's a gorgeous, good-looking baby. I'm sure it's going to be massively long and tall. So good luck with that, Lara."
Holden added: "He'll be an excellent dad. He's ridiculously in love with Bert, his dog, so he probably needs a human to put some love into as well."
Holden is introducing some of the acts at the Royal Variety Show, hosted by Walliams, which is being filmed at the Royal Albert Hall for broadcast on ITV1 next month.
She said she was not worried about this year's X Factor ratings and the repercussions for another Simon Cowell show, Britain's Got Talent, because "we're a totally different show".
Walliams, who married Dutch model Stone two years ago at Claridge's hotel, recently announced on Twitter: "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".
