Russell Brand has become a daddy for the first time!

Comedian had to leg it from a gig

Awww, looky wooky, Russell Brand has had a baby-waby.

The comedian shocked the audience of his gig at Nottingham Playhouse last night by revealing the lovely news.

It’s been reported that he finished up his stand-up by 9pm as he had to get on the motorway.

Fan Dan Crann  told the Daily Mirror: "He didn't confirm if it was a boy or a girl.

"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**king M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby.'"

Hollywood star Brand is engaged to Laura Gallacher, sister of TV presenter Kirsty.

There has been no announcement on whether the baby is a boy or a girl.

However, the Get him To The Greek star has previously joked how he will not impose a sex on his child and will raise them without the concept of being male or female.

Only when they are old enough to understand and only if they want to choose is, apparently, his ethos.

The 41-year-old star, who was famously married to pop star Katy Perry before they divorced and he said rather ungentlemanly things about her, shared his views on parenting during an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show.

In that same chat with his old mucker, he credited fiancée Laura with making him more chilled out: "Well some of that is because I'm in a monogamous relationship now so I'm a lot calmer.

"I read a different book every week and I read one on preparation for fatherhood to mentally prepare me for it."

Good luck, kid!
