Russell Brand and Laura Gallacher are parents!

Russell Brand

Comedian and activist Russell Brand and fiancee Laura Gallacher have welcomed a brand new baby girl, although the pair are yet to make a formal announcement.

“Well done”

The news was confirmed when Laura’s sister, Kirsty Gallacher, took to Twitter yesterday revealing she’s become an auntie for the first time and congratulating the couple on their new arrival.

“Thanks for messages, proud to be an auntie for first time. Well done to @DaisyPoppets & @rustyrockets. Sadly can’t meet her ’til am well,” Kirsty posted.

Hopefully she had permission from the new parents to spill the beans on social media, as it appears to be the first online reveal of baby Brand-Gallacher’s arrival.

Early finish

Brand had spoken of the birth earlier this week at a Nottingham Playhouse gig, apparently being mindful to be off stage before 9pm and telling the audience he “needed to get down the f***ing M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby”.

This is the first child for Brand – who was previously married to pop star Katy Perry – and Gallacher.

The pair have been together on and off for years, but reunited when Brand split from Jemima Khan and have sealed the union with this fresh, new poppet.

Reports that the couple have named their daughter Mabel have not been officially confirmed.
