Reformed messy slut and one-time Hollywood It-Brit Russell Brand has entered the next phase of his transformation into a normal, less messy person. Phase 1 was Russell, “desperate to start a family” (at least according to The Daily Mail), knocking up his girlfriend Laura Gallacher earlier this spring. Phase 2 was Russell putting a ring on Laura’s finger and turning her from Russell’s baby mama to Russell’s future wife. Phase 3 happened sometime recently when Laura gave birth to their first child.
According to The Mirror UK, Russell subtly let the arrival of his baby slip during a stand-up show in Nottingham, England last night. An audience member claims Russell told everyone that he had to get home ASAP because his “girlfriend just had a baby.” Russell reportedly ended his show before 9pm. According to people there, Russell didn’t elaborate further, like when the baby was born or if it’s a boy or a girl. A source tells The Mirror that Russell’s baby was born late last week. The Mirror thinks it may be a girl because a random fan congratulated him on his baby girl on Twitter.
The words Russell Brand + Dad would have been truly anxiety-triggering a few years ago, but Russell has calmed down in recent years, so it’s not that weird anymore. And honestly, he’s probably going to be fine. Years being Russell Brand is more than enough preparation Russell Brand needs for fatherhood. What’s going weeks without sleep and constantly smelling like a mix of barf and piss? I’m sure after the first week, Russell was like “Ah, this really takes me back to my 20s.”
