RUSSELL Brand’s wife Laura has given an intimate insight into their private life in an incredibly rare interview.
The 33 year old opened up about marriage and parenthood as she candidly discussed their relationship.
Laura was just 19 years old when she first dated Russell in 2006, who was married to singer Katy Perry between 2010 and 2012.
They bumped into each other at a canal nine years later, following his marriage breakdown, and decided to give their romance another go – tying the knot in 2017 and welcoming two children together.
Speaking about her and 45-year-old Russell’s reunion, Laura explained: “When we first met we were both in a completely different place.
“I hadn’t seen Russell for years… I came down the steps to the canal and Russell was standing there.
“We both immediately knew it was going to be serious.”
She continued on the Made by Mammas podcast: “I never imagined we would be sitting there having this conversation, so much time has passed but I have a deep appreciation and love for this person even though I don’t know this person now. He was so different.
“It was very slow, it was getting to know each other and going out on day trips together – suddenly it went fast.
“Six months later, shall we move in, shall we get a puppy, and then after that I found out I was pregnant. We moved in in November and Valentine’s Day the next year I found out I was pregnant.”
Laura revealed that comic Russell “dropped to the floor” when he found out that she was pregnant, and that he was “absolutely over the moon” to become a father.
The pair are mum and dad to three-year-old Mabel and two-year-old Peggy, with Laura adding that they want to have another child but due to her suffering from hyperemesis in her pregnancies, they need to make sure it’s the right time.
She said: “We do discuss it. I have to be in a place to handle a long time of potentially not being myself as I’ve been sick in two pregnancies, I want to get myself to a place where the girls are the right age.
“Peggy has just turned two, we are having a lot of tantrums. If we’re blessed enough to have another child, then I would absolutely love it.”
Russell and Laura are normally incredibly private about their family life, with the comic rarely speaking out about his wife and children.
