Comedian and actor Russell Brand is said to be expecting his first child with girlfriend Laura Gallacher, according to reports this morning.

The 40-year-old, who was married to Katy Perry for one year before their split in 2011, is known for his womanising ways but it looks like he may be settling down as The Sun is reporting that his 27-year-old girlfriend is five months pregnant.

The paper was told by a source that the Get Him to the Greek star is “absolutely made up" by the news, adding: "Russell might have bedded many of the world’s most stunning women but now it’s all about Laura and becoming a dad." 

“Most of his closest friends have children and he was desperate to start a family. He and Laura are thrilled to bits at the prospect of becoming parents. They have shared the happy news with close family and friends."

Russell and Laura have been on and off for nine years, splitting in 2007 before reconciling and then parting ways again in 2009.

We're not sure saying you've slept with some of "the world's most stunning women" in your baby announcement is appropriate, but sure look, at least he's happy.
