Stephen Fry has dismissed reports in the media that he is ready to start a family with his new husband, Elliott Spencer. The TV star recently gave his first interview since tying the knot with 27-year-old comedian Elliott, in which he apparently hinted the newlyweds would soon hear the "patter of tiny feet". But asked outright by a Twitter follower on Tuesday whether he had "baby plans", Stephen, 57, replied, "No – don't believe what you read it the papers!"

Speculation began when Stephen was asked by the Sun about the prospect of having children with his new husband. "Well, that's peeping into Volume 2," he apparently replied, referring to his two autobiographies.
"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!"
Stephen announced that he and Elliott had tied the knot at a registry office in Dereham on 17th January with a sweet photo of them both signing the register. "Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing," he captioned the shot.
The couple had hoped to keep their wedding under wraps, but news of their engagement was leaked just days before the ceremony.
They have since shared some snaps from their special day, including one of them cutting their wedding cake. "On Saturday afternoon we did have cake. And it was good," Stephen captioned the image, which shows them slicing into a modest dessert topped with kiwi fruit.
Elliott, meanwhile, shared a photo of the newlyweds smiling for the camera and showing off matching 'Groom' badges.
Married life is clearly suiting Stephen; the day after the couple were married, he tweeted to his 8.58 million followers, "When your better half lets you watch the @bbcsnooker you know that marriage is a fine thing."
