AceShowbiz - David Walliams is keen to shield his son from the spotlight. Sharing son Alfred, nine, with his Dutch model ex-wife Lara Stone, David and Lara both want Alfred to be able to grow up just like other kids although the couple have high-profile careers.
"I knew what I was getting into, this is what I signed up to. Making a television programme, being in the spotlight is unavoidable and if you're a kid, it must be quite hard," David said to HELLO! magazine.
"You don't know what they going to want to do with their lives. They might choose to do something completely private, in which case, there doesn't seem to be any advantage to being in the spotlight."
And, David is trying to take tips from his "Britain's Got Talent" co-star Alesha Dixon. He said, "She's very engaged with the kids. When you see her around her children you understand why they adore her so much."
"We were recently in Australia doing 'Australia's Got Talent' and her whole family were there, her sister, her partner's brother, and everything. She's a very,family-oriented person and she obviously adores her kids."
