Russell Brand is a father to a bouncing baby girl!
The comedian welcomed a daughter with fiancee Laura Gallacher and the brand new bundle of joy is named Mabel, the Daily Mail reports.
News of the pregnancy was confirmed on Tuesday after Brand shared the big news on Sunday during his stand-up gig at the Nottingham Playhouse in England.
Attendees quickly took to Twitter to share their excitement over the baby news.
Another attendee, Daniel Crann, spoke exclusive about the announcement with the Mirror, saying “he didn’t confirm if it was a girl or a boy.”
“He was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9pm as he ‘needed to get down the f***ing M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby’,” Crann added.
Another source close to the star tells the newspaper that Brand’s baby was born “late last week.”
Brand previously told late night host Jonathan Ross that he considered raising the child “gender neutral.” “We don’t know the gender,” he said. “I may not even ever impose a gender upon it, let the child grow up and be whatever the hell it is.”
Brand and Gallacher have been dating on-and-off for several years. The pair became engaged soon after sharing the news of their pregnancy back in July.
