Lara Stone's friends laugh at marriage
Lara Stone's friends laugh at her for being married.
The 28-year-old supermodel - who tied the knot with 41-year-old comic David Walliams in May 2010 after eight months of dating - admits her former hard-partying ways meant many of her pals never expected she would settle down.
She said: ''My friends still make fun of me for being wed.
''They find it so hard to believe. Even four years back they wouldn't have expected it. It was quite unexpected, but it has made me happy. I feel secure. It's really calming somehow.
''We both have such random jobs, it is not mundane. He doesn't go to the office while I cook him dinner, so I don't feel like I have to be too grown up about the whole thing.''
Although she and David are very happy together, Lara isn't ready to have children just yet - because she and her spouse are so smitten with their dog Bert, who the 'Little Britain' star gave to his wife in February.
She admitted to the Sunday Times Style magazine: ''I'd like to have a family. Well, I thought I really wanted to but then we got Bert.
''I know people with children are going to hate me, but he has filled a void, that instinctive 'I have to take care of something' feeling. I was quite broody, but now I take care of Bert and it has settled the broody thing for the moment.''
When she finally quits modelling, Lara already knows what she wants to do next.
She said: ''I'd like to have my own burger place. I' going to call it Lara's Baps and Buns. There's not a proper, good cafe here. I want a good chips place. They're all too fancy.''
