Congratulations are reportedly in order for Russell Brand and his blogger girlfriend Laura Gallacher as the two have welcomed their first child together!

It hasn’t been confirmed whether the baby is a boy or girl, but the news comes after 41-year-old Russ told the crowd at a Nottingham stand-up gig in the UK on November 6 that he was anxious to get home to his newborn.

An audience member spoke with The Mirror saying, ‘He was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9 pm as he “needed to get down the f–king M21 [highway] as my girlfriend has just had a baby”.’

The couple announced they were expecting in July when the British comedian and actor posted a photo of himself holding up a copy of Dean Beaumont’s The Expectant Dad’s Handbook captioned, ‘Right then. My Mum bought me this. Time to get ready! #trewlit #bookstagram #parenting’

The pair have dated on and off for years, both before and after Russell’s marriage to Katy Perry between 2010 and 2012.
