Russell Brand is set to become a father for the first time, it has been reported.
The comic and actor is expecting a child with his girlfriend Laura Gallacher, who is reportedly five months pregnant.
The Sun reports that the 40-year-old star is ‘made up’ about his impending fatherhood and has already been discussing baby names.
A friend of the star told the newspaper: “Russell might have bedded many of the world’s most stunning women but now it’s all about Laura and becoming a dad.”
Russell and Laura, who is the younger sister of TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, have had an on/off relationship for a number of years.
After splitting in 2007, they rekindled their relationship two years later only to split up again.
But the pair look to have settled down after getting back together last year following a romantic break to Rome.
They have since moved into a £1million riverside home near Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
