Yes, Russell Brand is going to be a DAD.
Dude’s been on and off with Laura Gallacher, the 28-year-old daughter of the ex-Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher, since 2006 (yes, even pre-Katy Perry). I always thought she was always an odd choice of girlfriend (she’s from stodgy English golf stock, and he’s uh, a professional agitator), but hey. Now, it seems like whatever happens with them, they’re going to be tied together by A KID.
Laura is five months pregnant with Brand’s baby and apparently, Brand is thrilled. DailyMail reports:
‘It’s all about Laura and becoming a dad now. They have been living as a couple for the past six months and are determined to make a go of their relationship,’ a friend said earlier this week. ‘It feels like a new chapter in their lives and the couple are enjoying every moment, including discussing baby names. Russell is absolutely made up. Most of his closest friends have children and he was desperate to start a family.’
