TV and Hollywood funny man Russell Brand is expecting his first child with his girlfriend Laura Gallacher. It is reported that she is five months pregnant and that the baby is due at the end of the summer.
The British comedian, who was married to singing superstar Katy Perry, is well known for being a womaniser and has been linked to a string of high-profile women in the past including model Kate Moss and ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.
A source close to the couple told The Sun newspaper ‘Russell might have bedded many of the world’s most stunning women but now it’s all about Laura and becoming a dad. They have been living as a couple for the last six months and are determined to make a go of their relationship.
It’s not the first time that Russell and Laura have dated, they have a brief romance back in 2007 before he met and married Perry. The comedian is now worth an estimated $15 million. He first found fame in the United Kingdom as a stand-up comedian and small time TV presenter. But it was his move to Hollywood that catapulted Brand to international fame and success.
He has since starred in a string of films, including the remake of Alfie with Dame Helen Mirren, Get Him to the Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Brand has since become something of a political activist, criticising government for their support of the super rich.
