This is a section from Robbie Williams book Reveal that I'm translating into Slovene.
Does anyone have an idea what "if fills a pram" refer to? Could it be a reference to some well-known incident or thing that he ever said?

They’ve met before, and she’s kind of flirty from the outset – though not in a ‘I fancy you’ kind of way, more ‘as I am at work, I will now adopt my
professional flirty personality’.
She puts down her recording device on the coffee table next to them. ‘It’s very small but it works,’ she says, then adds, ‘Have you heard that sentence before?’ ‘Listen,’ says Rob, ‘it fills a pram. It definitely fills a pram. It fills two prams.’

    I don't think I've ever heard that in American English, though I know what a "pram" is.

    From Google definitions:

    1. 1.
      a machine, similar to an odometer, for measuring distances by means of a large wheel pushed along the ground by a long handle, with a mechanism for recording the revolutions.
    2. 2.
      a baby carriage; pram.
