IL FAIRE EXPRÈSS DE with a reflexive verb

"Il fait exprès de tomber" was listed as the correct response in a quiz.  Since it's reflexive, could/should it be "de se tomber?"

Hi Carole,

Tomber is not reflexive , it is simply tomber to fall.

My carelessness, sorry.  Oftentimes when a verb uses "être" in p.c. I confuse it with reflexive.  Thanks.
