Walliams wants daughters

The 39-year-old British comic star David Walliams – who married model Lara Stone in a star-studded ceremony earlier this year – admits he would much rather have a house full of girls than boys because he wouldn’t feel comfortable talking about manly things like football.

He told the Daily Express newspaper: “I would love to have kids in a couple of years. I would quite like to be in a house full of girls plaiting their hair and playing with dolls and things like that.

“With boys I would find it hard as they would going, ‘Come on dad, let’s go to the football,’ and I’d be saying, ‘What about the ballet?’ ”

A galaxy of stars, including Sir Elton John, Tom Ford, Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell, were among the guests at David and Lara’s wedding at Claridges hotel, in London, in May.

Pal Ronnie Corbett claimed the service was among the most beautiful he had ever seen.

He said: “The whole atmosphere was of loveliness and glamour from a day gone by. I've never seen so many white roses, there were hundreds and I've never been to a more beautiful service in my whole life, it was perfect from beginning to end."
