Family, Relationship with Rusell Brand
Laura and Rusell have two kids. Two daughters, their first daughter Mabel was born before the couple got married in November of 2016 and their second baby girl was born in July of 2018.
The couple is quite very private when it comes to their family. Rusell broke the news of his first daughter’s arrival not immediately she was born but months later during his gig at the Nottingham Playhouse. In a similar style, the public was not aware that Laura was pregnant with their second baby girl until a month before she put to bed which goes to underline the level of secrecy when it comes to their kids.
The two are very dedicated parents and give their kids all their time. The doting parents are spotted on regular basis on day trips with their daughters to places like New York and Los Angeles.
Rusell had previously been married, although his marriage to Katy Perry only lasted 14 months. That did little to deter him from the idea of being hitched for the second time. The perpetual serial loverboy and Bizarre Shagger of the Year popped the ultimate question to his longtime girlfriend Laura Gallacher in June of 2016 after he dated her for a while.
After the engagement in 2016, the couple wasted no time in tying the knot in a very private service at the Remenham Church near their hometown in Henley on the Thames, on the 26th of August 2017.
