Russell Brand is reportedly going to be a dad!

The British Get Him to the Greek star, 40, and his girlfriend, 27-year-old Laura Gallacher, are expecting their first child, The Sun reports.

Gallacher is reportedly five months along and due this fall, a friend told the newspaper.


Gallacher is the sister of Kirsty Gallacher, a Scottish television presenter. While the couple is relatively low key, according to Gallacher’s blog, she describes herself as “a lover of food & drink and general homemaking.”

Brand and Gallacher began dating again last year, but it isn’t the first time the twosome have paired up. They’ve reportedly had an on-and-off relationship since 2007, having rekindled their relationship in 2015.

Brand has made no secret of the fact that he’s wanted to settle down and live a less-spotlight-intensive life. In the trailer for his documentary BRAND: A Second Coming, the comedian said, “Oh my f—ing God. I’m living, like, this life of the very thing I detest: vapid, vacuous celebrity.”

The difference in lifestyle desires between Brand and ex-wife Katy Perry reportedly led to their 2012 split after just over a year of marriage. Of settling down, Brand had told Redbook in its April 2011 issue, “I think I was ready for it. If you’re wild, like a wild animal, marriage won’t contain you. I think that’s how a lot of people get into trouble.”

This will be the first child for both Brand and Gallacher.
