Russell Brand welcomes new baby

Congratulations to Russell Brand and his fiancée Laura Gallacher! The couple have become first-time parents after welcoming a baby together.

During a performance at the Nottingham Playhouse on Sunday night, the comedian made the surprise announcement. Daniel Crann, who was in the audience, told The Mirror: “He didn’t confirm if it was a girl or a boy.”

He added: “He was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9pm as he ‘needed to get down the M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby’.”

It was revealed in May that comedian Russell and partner Laura were expecting a child together, with reports at the time suggesting she was about five-months pregnant.

Earlier this year, during a candid chat on The Jonathan Ross Show, Russell said that he had left his “lothario” ways behind him, adding that he feels “a lot more settled now”.
