Former wild man Russell Brand is loving that he’s about to be a father.
The comedian, once married to Katy Perry, confirmed reports that he and his pregnant fiancée Laura Gallacher are expecting their first baby by posting a photo of himself reading The Expectant Dad’s Handbook on Instagram.
“Right then. My Mum bought me this. Time to get ready!” he captioned it while holding up the book and showing half his face.
It came as a surprise when the couple, who have dated on and off since 2007, announced they were tying the knot and starting a family. They had rekindled their romance in 2015.
Russell’s soon to be wife is due in the fall, so he has the summer to read as much as he can about bringing a baby into the world. The British comic, 41, has talked about wanting a family before, telling Redbook in 2011 that he’s tamed his wild ways.
“I think I was ready for it. If you’re wild, like a wild animal, marriage won’t contain you. I think that’s how a lot of people get into trouble,” he said.
