Russell Brand 'proposes' to 'pregnant' girlfriend Laura Gallacher
Russell Brand has reportedly proposed to his long-term girlfriend Laura Gallacher, who is said to be expecting his first child.
The couple threw a low-key party in their Oxfordshire home at the weekend to share the news with friends and family, according to The Sun.
Laura, who is the younger sister of Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher, is reportedly six months pregnant and is “delighted” that Russell popped the question.
“As they are becoming parents, Russell wanted to do the right thing and make Laura his wife,” a source told the paper.
During the celebrations, Kirsty posted a photo to Instagram posing with Laura (27), saying: “Congratulations to my gorgeous sister.”
“Gorgeous day with Susie Amy et al Brand/Gallacher family day!” Kirsty wrote on a snap of her and the Footballers’ Wives star, who also attended the intimate bash.
Russell was previously married to pop songstress Katy Perry for 14 months before the pair went through a very public divorce in 2012.
This time, however, the 41-year-old wants things to be different.
“Russell didn’t want a big fuss this time after his very public relationship with Katy,” the source said.
Despite his long list of ex-lovers, including Kate Moss, Courtney Love and Geri Halliwell, the funny-man appears to be ready to settle down with Laura, who he previously dated in 2007 and 2009.
The pair moved in together at the start of this year, and are said to be planning a nursery in their £1 million home.
