Russell Brand is probably most well-known for his over the top raunchy characters on film and television, and his blunt style of humor, but he’s about to land a new role — dad!
That’s because the comic’s 27-year-old girlfriend, Laura Gallacher, is reportedly five months pregnant!!
A friend close to Russell dished:
“Russell might have bedded many of the world’s most stunning women but now it’s all about Laura and becoming a dad. It feels like a new chapter in their lives and the couple are enjoying every moment, including discussing baby names.”
The source continued:
“Russell is absolutely made up. Most of his closest friends have children and he was desperate to start a family.”
Of course one of the 40-year-old actor’s most high-profile relationships was his marriage with Katy Perry that ended in divorce back in 2011. At different times, the comedian apparently wanted to start a family with Perry as well as with another former gf, Jemima Khan, as the insider revealed:
“It didn’t work out with Katy, who felt she was too young for kids ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and there were conversations with Jemima.”
Laura and Russell have had an on-off relationship for quite a few years dating back to 2009. It was just last year that the expecting couple rekindled their love and enjoyed some quality time together in Rome.
As a result of the happy baby news, it’s reported that the couple is already planning out a nursery at their home they share near Henley-onThames, Oxfordshire.
What do you think about the exciting news?!
