Is the UK’s most notorious womaniser finally settling down?
The comedian and his on-again off-again girlfriend, Laura Gallacher, are reportedly expecting their first child
According to sources close to the British actor and his 27-year-old girlfriend, the couple are absolutely “thrilled” with their impending arrival, who is already five months along.
“He and Laura are thrilled to bits at the prospect of becoming parents,” the insider told The Sun.
“It feels like a new chapter in their lives and the couple are enjoying every moment.”
"Russell might have bedded many of the world's most stunning women but now it's all about Laura and becoming a dad," the insider told The Sun.
