Russell Brand and his girlfriend Laura Gallacher have welcomed a baby girl.
Gallacher's sister Kirsty Gallacher announced the news this week on Twitter.
“Thanks for messages, proud to be an auntie for first time… well done to [Laura] & [Russell]. Sadly can’t meet her ’til am well,” she tweeted to her followers.
UK tabloids report the comedian confirmed his daughter's name is Mabel while performing in Nottingham, England. U.K, thought this hasn't been confirmed yet.
“He was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9 p.m. as he ‘needed to get down the f—ing M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby,’ ” a fan told Mirror Celeb.
Brand has been with Gallacher, a lifestyle blogger, since last year. The pair has dated on and off since 2007.
In October, Brand told ES Magazine that he was excited about becoming a father.
“I feel lit up by the idea,” he said. “I’m very excited about becoming a dad and I’m preparing myself. I am just getting ready to be with a new little person and see what it is they want.”
