Russell Brand may have famously broken up with Katy Perry via text message back in 2011, but it looks like the British actor/comedian is ready to walk down the aisle again — nearly five years after he split from the pop star. According to The Sun (via Page Six), Russell has asked his longterm girlfriend, Laura Gallacher, to marry him. The site further reports that the soon-to-be parents shared the news with folks at a “hippie-style” party at their home in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire over the weekend.
“Russell didn’t want a big fuss this time after his very public relationship with Katy," a source said. "Laura is also keen to keep their romance low-key, so the small, intimate party was very much in keeping with their ‘homebodies’ image. As they are becoming parents, Russell wanted to do the right thing and make Laura his wife. She’s delighted he asked.”
This marks Russell's second marriage and his first child. Russell and Laura, who is six months pregnant, are old friends who reportedly dated back in 2007 and began seeing each other again last year. They later moved in together over the New Year. It should be noted he famously broke up with Katy on New Year's Eve, so he has a thing for the holiday. As for the pop star, she's been most recently linked to British actor Orlando Bloom, so it doesn't seem like Katy's too torn up about the split anymore.
