Comedian Russell Brand has reportedly welcomed his second child with wife Laura Gallacher, a report by The Sun claims.
According to the publication, the happy couple – who are already parents to 20-month old daughter Mabel – have welcomed another baby girl to the family.
Russell, 43, and 31-year-old Laura had not announced they were expecting, but Laura was spotted with a growing baby bump just weeks before she reportedly gave birth.
A source told the paper: “Obviously they are over the moon, and Russell will no doubt be gushing about her whenever he next performs stand-up.
“But they did not want to make a big announcement.”
OK! Online have contacted a representative for Russell for comment.

Russell, who married Laura in August 2017, previously opened up about becoming a father in an episode of John Bishop in Conversation.
“When she was born, I felt something really quite profound,” he said at the time.
“I felt extremely present in that birth, completely overwhelmed by it.”
He added: ”I’ve heard a lot of men say, ‘I didn’t know I had so much love in me’, but I did know I had so much love in me. I just didn’t know what to do with it. And when I saw her, I felt something switch on – this sense of very determined and clear purpose.”
He also told Lorraine Kelly he wanted to expand his brood in future.
When asked if he would want to have more children, he said: “Oh yeah! The actual birth bit is brilliant, surprising, amazing. I saw how mental it was, my wife’s birth was a crazy world, I was on the periphery.
“The midwives were dominating. I was scuttling around, jealous of the oxygen she was on.”
