Russell Brand and his wife, Laura Gallacher are expecting their second child together.

While reports in February claimed they were expecting, it wasn’t until the couple were spotted in London together this week with Laura looking very pregnant.

The baby will be a little brother or sister for the pair’s one-year-old daughter Mabel.

Back when she was born, the 42-year-old funnyman said he was “delighted to be the father of a beautiful daughter”, however, he previously told English TV presenter Jonathan Ross he doesn’t want to “impose a gender upon it.”

“Let the child grow up and be whatever the hell it is,” the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor said while Laura was pregnant with Mabel.

Russell even joked about calling his child “Jesus Three” because “I’ve accepted the idea that that person will be more important than me,” he told Jonathan.

The couple wed in August, in an intimate ceremony. It was a second marriage for Russell, who was previously married to Katy Perry.
