Russell Brand is gonna be somebody’s DAD. LOL.
On Friday, the British star confirmed previous reports that he and his girlfriend Laura GallacherÃÂ are expecting their first child when he posted a photo of himself reading The Expectant DadÃ¢â¬â¢s HandbookÃÂ on Instagram. Yes, the truth came out in the form of a very informative pregnancy handbook.
Ã¢â¬ÅRight then. My Mum bought me this. Time to get ready!Ã¢â¬Â he captioned the snapshotÃÂ of him wide-eyed while peeking over the bookÃ¢â¬â¢s edge.
The couple- who have dated on and off since 2007 and rekindled their romance once again in 2015- haven’t addressed the pregnancy rumors until now. And now’s a good a time as any, right?
Brand, 41, has settled down in recent years and told Redbook back in April that he’s ready for this important transition. Ã¢â¬ÅI think I was ready for it. If youÃ¢â¬â¢re wild, like a wild animal, marriage wonÃ¢â¬â¢t contain you. I think thatÃ¢â¬â¢s how a lot of people get into trouble.Ã¢â¬Â
True that. Well, good to know that you’re diving head first into daddyhood, Russell!
