But David Walliams has admitted he could easily fall for either a man or a woman, as he's of the opinion that 'things can change for people over the years' when it comes to their sexual preferences.
The 41-year-old comedian opened up about his sexuality in a revealing new interview with Radio Times magazine, explaining that to him, love is about falling for someone's 'soul, heart and brain', rather than whether they're male or female.
'Things can change': Although he's happily married to Dutch supermodel Lara Stone, David Walliams is of the opinion that a person's sexuality can 'change' over time
'So it is about the person but I also think it goes beyond that. You don't just fall in love with someone's body, do you? You fall in love with someone's soul and heart and brain.'
Walliams married Dutch supermodel Lara Stone three years ago, and the couple welcomed son Alfred into the world in May.

'Laydee': Walliams has previously explained that just because he is known for playing effeminate characters, it doesn't mean he is homosexual
He explained: 'I've always been effeminate, and I think people confuse effeminacy with homosexuality, like they go hand-in-hand.'
Walliams also opened up about his previous suicide attempts and depressive episodes.
Speaking to Radio Times, he added: 'My life's in a different place. It comes from overthinking everything sometimes - having an overactive mind, and your mind racing when you should be sleeping or whatever. So it's quite easy to turn in on yourself and be very self-critical.
'And obviously you want to have an active mind because I want to be able to write scripts and books but at the same time, it's hard to switch that off and that's why a lot of people who are creative sometimes have problems with their drinking or taking drugs because their minds won't stop.'
However, the former Little Britain star - who will next appear as a chemistry teacher in new BBC comedy Big School - admitted being an outsider throughout his youth has helped him succeed in his career.
Walliams said: 'Sometimes I think that people who really thrive at school don't necessarily thrive at life.
'I think that being a little bit of an outsider is actually quite helpful. Creative imagination is formed when you're on your own a lot and not so much if you're out all day playing football and having fun with your friends.'
