Russell Brand says wife Laura won’t leave him alone with their kids for more than one day

Russell Brand has said his wife Laura Gallacher won’t leave him alone with their kids for more than one day.

The comedian admitted that he’s “not so good” at changing nappies or ensuring his children get fed.

Rather, he’s more interested in things like the “mystical connotations of (his daughter’s) beauty and grace” and speaking in riddles.

The Sun reports Brand said Laura doesn’t leave for more than 24 hours because: “She respects and cares for their safety too much.”

“I’m focused on mystical connotations of Mabel’s beauty and grace. Not so good on the nappies and making sure they eat food.

“In no time we’re in a coffee shop, she’s covered in stuff because I’m not willing to fight any of the battles. So it looks a bit Shameless.”

Russell and Gallacher have two children together – two-year-old Mabel and six-months old Peggy.

The pair married in an intimate ceremony near their home in Henley-on-Thames in 2017. They have been on and off since 2007, with Russell marrying US singer Katy Perry in 2010.

Perry and Brand divorced in 2012.
