London, Sep 25: Model Lara Stone, who tied the knot with comic David Walliams, admits because of her former hard-partying ways many of her friends never expected she would settle down.
The 28-year-old got married to Walliams in May 2010 after eight months of dating.
“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,” contactmusic.com quoted Stone as saying.
“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,” she said.
Stone isn’t ready to have children just yet because she and her spouse are so smitten with their dog Bert.
“I would 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,” she said.
