Russell Brand Announces That He Has Become a Father During a Performance
Russell Brand, 41, has revealed he’s become a father for the first time after welcoming a baby with fiancée Laura Gallacher, 27.
The comedian – who was famously married to Katy Perry – reportedly made the announcement during a performance at the Nottingham Playhouse on Sunday night.
He did not confirm if it was a girl or a boy.
A member of the audience revealed that Russell ‘was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9pm as he “needed to get down the f***ing M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby.”‘
Russell recently revealed he was looking forward to becoming a father in an interview with Evening Standard magazine.
The comedian told the publication: ‘I feel lit up by the idea. I’m very excited about becoming a dad and I’m preparing myself. I am just getting ready to be with a new little person and see what it is they want.’
More to come.
