David Walliams has been dating Lara Stone since 2009

Little Britain star David Walliams is engaged to Dutch model Lara Stone, his publicist has confirmed.

The 38-year-old comedian reportedly proposed to the Vogue cover girl, who is 13 years his junior, in Los Angeles last week.

Walliams has previously been linked to a string of celebrities including Abi Titmuss and Lisa Snowden.

Walliams told the Sun newspaper: "It's true, we're engaged and blissfully happy."

He added: "I wasn't planning to make a public announcement because I am not a royal - yet."

The couple have been dating since last year.

Walliams, who successfully swam the English Channel in 2006 for Sport Relief, is best known for starring in Little Britain with comedy partner Matt Lucas.
