Russell Brand has been married to Laura Gallacher since 2017 and the duo are parents to two kids. But who is the richest and oldest between the pair?

On August 2017, English actor, Russell Brand and his author wife Laura Gallacher tied the knot in an intimate church ceremony near their home in Henley-on-Thames, Oxon.

The nuptials were attended by just friends and family, as well as their then-9-month-old daughter Mabel, and the newlyweds were pictured embracing aboard a steamboat.

How did Russell Brand and Laura Gallacher meet? Russell and Laura were first introduced in 2007 by her sister, Kirsty.

When they first met, Laura was an art student in college while Russell was a TV presenter. “I really fell in love,” she told You magazine of their initial romance. “I’d never experienced love like that before.”

“We met when she was 19 and I was 30. She fully loves me for what I am,” Russell told Stylist. “She’s not interested in the famous person at all.”

The pair dated briefly, but Russell wasn’t ready for a commitment at the time. Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show, the comedian explained, “We went out with each other, we loved each other very much, but I was [in a phase where] I thought the world was an amusement park made out of orgasms.”

Ultimately, the pair split and Laura went on to work in London, where she managed restaurants and nightclubs. Eventually, she decided to switch career paths and started a lifestyle blog.

“I’d hit a wall of tiredness,” she said“I wanted to go back and find my creative side.”

In 2015, the couple reconnected thanks to a chance encounter. 

“My ex had literally moved out of our flat that day and I was heartbroken, with mascara running down my face,” she told Grazia“A friend dragged me out on a walk to the canal in east London, where I’d never been in my life, and as we came on to the footpath Russell was standing there, like he’d organized it.”

Russell and Laura began dating again, but this time they were able to make it work. Speaking to You magazine, Laura explained that they were both different at this point in their lives.

“I remember him saying, ‘I think I want a quiet life and a family,’ and it was exactly what I wanted. So, then it was about seeing if we could build a foundation to make that happen,” she said.

The pair are now inseparable and are even parents to two and expecting their third child together. In November 2016, Russell and Laura welcomed their first child together, daughter Mabel Brand. Their second daughter, Peggy, was born in July 2018.

In June 2023, Russell shared that their family would be growing by one more while appearing on The Diary of a CEO. “You fell in love and you’ve got two children. You’ve got a third on the way, around the corner. That’s a very special love you have found,” host Steven Bartlett said, which Russell then confirmed.
