British funnyman David Walliams and his supermodel wife Lara Stone has vowed to shun the celebrity trend for unusual baby names.

The Little Britain star and his model wife Lara Stone are preparing to become first-time parents, and the 41-year-old funnyman admitted that their baby won't be given an odd name.

Speaking to Alan Carr, Walliams said: "It's very hard because you have got a long time to think about it. But it's a bit of a curse if you're called Apple or Peaches or something like that. I think we are just going to go with a normal name."

Walliams further explained that he is thrilled about becoming a father, adding: "I'm really excited about it because I've been writing children's books and you get to that age when a lot of your friends have kids and you start thinking, 'When's it going to happen to me?' It's lovely, it's a wonderful thing. We were just thinking about it now we're married and I'm quite old - I'm 41 - so I thought I better get on with it."

He adds of his wife: "Lara is great. I think that a woman is never more beautiful than when she is pregnant."
