Russell Brand has finally confirmed the rumors that have been on lately indicating that he and his girlfriend Laura Gallacher are going to welcome their first child together. So, the rumors are true. The popular comedian will soon become a father. Russell Brand was the one who confirmed the baby news on Instagram.
So, the star shared a photo of him reading The expectant Dad’s Handbook. And the message was even more revealing. “Right then. My Mum bought me this.

The same insider went on to say that the pair was really enjoying the pregnancy time. “It feels like a new chapter in their lives and the couple are enjoying every moment, including discussing baby names,” the insider explained. “Russell is absolutely made up.

They have shared the happy news with close family and friends,” it concluded.
The fact that Russell and Laura are going to welcome a child is not surprising at all. Actually, the two have been a couple for quite some time. The pair met back in 2006 and got back together in 2015.
