Stylish types across the pond may be preparing for one of the biggest nights in the fashion calendar, the Met Ball, but over in Blighty, there's one model who has some happy news to celebrate. According to our sources (aka: Instagram), Lara Stone has given birth to her first child!
Famed photographer Mert Alas (of Mert and Marcus) took to the photo sharing site earlier today to declare 'Lara had a baby boy yesterday.' The caption accompanied a stunning shot of the blonde model in all her gappy-toothed, cheekboney glory.
David and Lara have not confirmed whether they have indeed welcomed a baby boy but Twitter is buzzing with well-wishers. Teresa Baca, who is signed to the same modelling agency as La Stone, tweeted, 'Congratulations to Lara Stone and David Walliams who had a baby boy yesterday,' while Katie Grand, editor in chief of LOVE magazine, also sent her congratulations.
It was in November last year that Lara's husband, David Walliams, confirmed the couple would be having a baby. 'Some wonderful news. My beautiful wife Lara is pregnant,' the Little Britain told his Twitter followers. 'We are having a baby! It is due next year and we both couldn't be happier. Dx'.
This was followed by a non-social-media-related statement, which read: '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.'
The love affair between the comedian and the Dutch stunner began almost four years ago - the pair started dating in September 2009, they were engaged in January 2010 and married in May that year. The lovely Lara revealed how David won her heart, impling that it was his persistence which caught her eye. When asked whether it was love at first sight, she said, ‘To him it was. He stalked me!’
We’ve got to hand it to him, it clearly worked. And now they're bringing impeccably beautiful, very tall and crazy-funny babies into the world. Hurrah for that!
