The star has shared a handful of holiday snapshots with fans

The comedian, 50, is incredibly protective of his child's privacy – as is Alfred’s mother, Lara Stone – and both parents keep their little boy off social media.

The former couple first met in 2009 and were married just four months later at London's Claridge's Hotel. They announced Lara's pregnancy in December 2012, and welcomed son Alfred in May 2013.

Last year, David made rare comments about his son during an appearance on This Morning to talk about his children's book, Mega Monster.

"Alfred, he has lots of brilliant ideas," said the writer, adding: "We often talk about things we'd like to read stories about and he said, 'Wouldn't it be great if there was a monster made up of all the different scary monsters in the world and it'd be called the Mega Monster, Dad? That should be the title of your next book!' And I said, 'Okay, yeah that's a great title.'

“When we go on walks and stuff with the dog we often think about where the story could be set and he says, 'Dad you do the writing of it, the hard bit!'"

David then shared his son's cheeky comment about the books: "But recently he said, 'Please can I have 50 per cent of the royalties?'"
