It’s time to celebrate! Russell Brand has proposed to his longtime girlfriend Laura Gallacher on the heels of the news that she’s got a bun in the oven, according to a new report! We’ve got all the details here!
Russell Brand, 41, has reportedly asked his long term girlfriend Laura Gallacher, 27, to be his wife, weeks after news surfaced that the pair is expecting their first child. This may come somewhat as a shock to Katy Perry, 31, who shared a 14 month marriage to the comedian before they called it quits. Nonetheless, we’ve got all the details on the couple’s exciting news!
“Russell didn’t want a big fuss this time after his very public relationship with Katy,” a source tells The Sun, on June 28. The lovebirds shared the news in a “hippy-like” setting with close friends and family. “Laura is also keen to keep their romance low-key, so the small, intimate party was very much in keeping with their ‘homebodies’ image,” continued the source. “As they are becoming parents, Russell wanted to do the right thing and make Laura his wife. She’s delighted he asked.”
This is happy news indeed as the couple, who previously dated in 2007 and again in 2009, are reportedly expecting their first child together. Laura, a self described homemaker, is about six months along with her pregnancy.
The party guests enjoyed socializing with the couple’s animals including a giant tortoise named Turbo at their riverside property in Oxfordshire. Laura’s sister Kirsty Gallacher even took to Instagram on June 27 to commemorate the special moment in time, writing: ‘Congratulations to my gorgeous sister.”
It appears Russell is finally ready to settle down after dating a slew of high-profile girlfriends aside from Katy such as Kate Moss, 42, Courtney Love, 51, former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, 43, and billionaire’s daughter Jemima Goldsmith, 42.
Meanwhile, Russell’s ex wife Katy has been receiving the warm attention of the Pirates of The Carribean actor, Orlando Bloom, 39. The pair has sparked plenty on-again, off-again speculations after he was caught flirting with Selena Gomez, 23. However, Katy and Orlando, who have been dating for nearly five months — were pictured kissing and looking very much in love while on a yacht in Cannes after the Sel scandal on Sunday, May 15, so all seems well.
