LONDON, March 4 (UPI) --David Walliams and wife Lara Stone have reportedly split.
The 43-year-old Britain's Got Talent judge and 31-year-old Dutch model are said to be on a trial separation after nearly five years years of marriage. The Sun reports Stone left the couple's home this week with their 22-month-old son and pet dog.
"David has been putting on a brave face. But people close to him are very worried because they know he's devastated," a source told the publication. "[He] hopes it is a blip and that they can get the marriage back on track somehow, especially seeing as there is a child involved."
Walliams and Stone have been together since 2009, and married in May 2010. The couple welcomed their first child, son Alfred, in May 2013, and the model previously told Harper's Bazaar she doesn't have "anything else to wish for" than her house, husband, job and baby in 2014.
Walliams and Stone have not publicly commented on the split, but the television personality did confirm his events this week, tweeting, "The #WalliamsWhirlwind helicopter tour of schools for @WorldBookDayUK tomorrow will go ahead as planned so not to disappoint my young fans."
