Flip and learn what’s up with Russell Brand…
Brand and Laura are practice being parents by looking after the dog called Bear. Yes, Russell Brand has bought a pooch for his pregnant fiancée.
Russell confirmed he’s going to be a daddy via social media writing:
“Right then. My Mum bought me this. Time to get ready!”
The 41-year-old comedian gave his partner Laura Gallacher the gift of an Alsatian puppy, which he has named Bear. He has been seen walking in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, England where he shares a home with the 27-year-old beauty.
A source told The Sun newspaper:
“Ever since Russell moved to the countryside he has been desperate to get a dog – and saw this as the right time.”
The source added:
“He reckons looking after Bear will be good practice for him and Laura before baby arrives this summer.”
“If he is as hands-on as he with Bear, he is going to be all right.”
However, it’s not the first time he’s splashed out on a pet for a loved one.
Brand previously purchased a pub called Sue for his former girlfriend Jemima Khan – who he dated from 2013 to 2014 – when she turned 40. The puppy news comes after Brand confirmed he was to become a dad on Friday.
They announced their happy news to friends and family with a low-key party two-week-ago.
A source previously said:
“Russell didn’t want a big fuss this time after his very public relationship with Katy. Laura is also keen to keep their romance low-key, so the small, intimate party was very much in keeping with their ‘homebods’ image.”
“As they are becoming parents, Russell wanted to do the right thing and make Laura his wife. She’s delighted he asked.”
