Stephen Fry has rubbished reports he is ready to begin a family with his new husband, Elliott Spencer.

Asked on Twitter yesterday whether he had “baby plans”, he replied: “No, don’t believe what you read in the papers!”

Rumours began to circulate when he spoke about the possibility of children during an appearance at an Apple store in London where he was launching an app.

Asked about fatherhood, according to The Sun, he referenced his memoirs by saying: “Well that is peeping into Volume Two. Volume One, the marriage is still… I hope it will never close, but in Volume Two the little family, the patter of tiny feet. Come back to me on that one.”

The broadcaster and writer has since dismissed the paper’s claims by tweeting: “Ha! Weird report that I gave an interview to the Sun. Not true.”

He added: “And that I am ‘planning to have a family’ not true. Spelt my name right though.”

Fry and Elliot tied the knot earlier this month.
