Russell Brand has a new leading lady in his life! The actor, who was previously married to Katy Perry, is rumored to be engaged to Laura Gallacher. But the rumor mill doesn't stop there for this cute couple — the pair is said to be expecting their first child together, too!
The 41-year-old comedian and his 27-year-old love reportedly told friends and family about the exciting news during an engagement party at his riversie home in Oxfordshire over the weekend, the Daily Mail reports. The "hippie-style" engagement party included a few famous attendees such as Laura's sister, Kirsty Gallacher, who is an English television presenter, as well as Susie Amy, one of the stars of the British TV show Footballers' Wives — these two even shared some Instagrams of the event, so we can get a glimpse of the festivities.
Kirsty Gallacher captioned one pic of her and Susie Amy: "Gorgeous day with @susieamy et al Brand/Gallacher family day!"

On a photo of her and her sister Laura, Kirsty wrote: "Congratulations to my gorgeous sister @daisypoppets."
One other detail we can't get over? During the engagement party, guests reportedly mingled with the couple's animals, which includes a giant tortoise named Turbo.
The rumored bride-to-be is also rumored to be five (or six, reports are mixed) months pregnant with Brand's first child. "Russell didn't want a big fuss this time after his very public relationship with Katy," a source revealed to The Sun. "Laura is also keen to keep their romance low-key, so the small, intimate party was very much in keeping with their 'homebods' image."
"As they are becoming parents, Russell wanted to do the right thing and make Laura his wife," the source continued. "She's delighted he asked."
Sounds like the couple, who are old friends and previously dated in 2007 and 2009, might make it down the aisle before Brand's ex-wife, who has been making headlines recently for her steamy relationship with Orlando Bloom.

Relationship rumors between Bloom and Perry first started swirling when the duo was spotted flirting at January's Golden Globes after-parties, and then in March it was finally confirmed that that pair was officially an item. "Katy likes how down to earth Orlando is," the insider told E! News. "They seem to be getting serious and are an official couple. She calls him her boyfriend." Since then, the actor and pop star have been packing on the PDA during tropical vacays (Perry even posted a little peek into their Cannes vacay! Social media official, y'all!), award shows, even lunch dates! Consider these two basically our "Teenage Dream!" But now things are apparently getting even more serious and a new special and sparkly piece of jewelry just might be in Perry's future.
