Stephen Fry and his husband Elliot Spencer aren't ready to expand their family of two yet.

The host of BBC2's "QI," 57, recently sparked rumors that he's taking steps into fatherhood when he hinted of "the patter of tiny feet" and a "little family" in a forthcoming autobiography during a London event, Hello Magazine reports.

"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," he told The Sun when asked about fatherhood during an appearance at an Apple store where was launching an app.

However, Fry, who married his 27-year-old spouse earlier this month, later quashed rumors that he was already planning to start a family with Spencer.

When asked by a Twitter user Wednesday whether there were "baby plans" in the works for him and his husband, the TV star wrote: "No, don't believe what you read in the papers!"

Fry's comments were apparently taken out of context and were in no way a declaration that he was interested in fatherhood at the moment, Daily Mail noted.

The British TV personality also opened up about his intimate wedding to Spencer during the same interview, revealing that their first dance as a married couple was to a song performed by Cole Porter.

"We did have a first dance but anybody who has seen me dance would not call it a dance. It was a shuffle," he told the outlet.

"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 Married. But I could not get it on my iPhone or my Android so we had Cole Porter instead," he continued.

Fry couldn't contain his excitement about being a married man, gushing: "It still feels good. It's great. I have my wedding ring on."

The TV host and his husband documented their big day and shared several sweet snapshots on their social media accounts.

In one photo, the newlyweds are seen cutting a modest cake topped with kiwi fruits, which Fry captioned: "On Saturday afternoon we did have cake. And it was good."

Once news of their nuptials hit the media, various celebrities came out to extend their congratulations to the newly married couple.

Derren Brown was among the first to congratulate Fry and Spencer, responding to the photograph with: "Gor.geous xxx."

"House" star Hugh Laurie posted his own message, tweeting: "Bloody hell it's happened! @ElliottGSpencer has made an honest man of m'col. Love and happiness to all!!"
