Stephen Fry wants to start a family.

The 57-year-old presenter married partner Elliott Spencer earlier this month and they are looking forward to hearing the "patter of tiny feet" at some point.

Asked if they want to have children, he said: "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!"

Stephen - who began dating the 27-year-old writer last summer - is enjoying every aspect of married life so far.

He said: "It still feels good. It's great. I have my wedding ring on."

The couple tied the knot in a low-key ceremony at a registry office in Dereham, Norfolk, East England, and Stephen admits they were able to keep the nuptials secret with the help of the registrar.

He admitted to The Sun newspaper: "She brilliantly put a false date in the computer so anybody who looked at it would think we were due to be married on March 7."

The 'Sherlock Holmes' actor enjoyed a first dance with Elliott at their wedding reception but insists it was more of a "shuffle" to a song which wasn't their initial choice.

He explained: "We did have a first dance but anybody who has seen me dance would not call it a dance. It was a shuffle.

"I wanted to choose a tune written by Al Jolson. It is the only great tune he wrote as far as I know.

"It's called 'Oh How We Danced on the Night That We Were Wed'. But I could not get it on my iPhone or my Android so we had Cole Porter instead."
