WHAT? Russell Brand reveals he’s a FATHER during latest comedy gig


Russell Brand reportedly announced the birth of his first child while performing at a gig in Nottingham last night.

According to The Mirror, the controversial comedian confirmed that his fiancée Laura Gallacher has given birth, but did not disclose the baby’s gender.

One fan told the site: “[Russell] was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9pm as he ‘needed to get down the f*cking M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby’.”

Late last month, the 41-year-old star told the Evening Standard that he felt “lit up” by the idea of becoming a parent.

“I’m very excited about becoming a dad and I’m preparing myself,” he said. “I am just getting ready to be with a new little person and see what it is they want.”

The actor famously married Katy Perry in October 2010.  That marriage officially ended in divorce in July 2012.
