Russell Brand has welcomed his second child into the world after his wife Laura Gallacher gave birth to their new sprog.

The pair are already parents to Mabel, who was born in November 2016.

The Sun reports a source confirming that they had had another girl - name TBC - although they were keeping the announcement more low-key this time.

"Obviously they are over the moon, and Russell will no doubt be gushing about her whenever he next performs stand-up. But they didn’t want to make a big announcement."

Indeed, Brand has not commented on his new daughter - who is rumoured to have arrived earlier this month - on social media, although he has been posting many photos of his dog Bear and analyses of 'Love Island' in recent days. 

He cancelled his UK and Irish tour dates in May after his mother was in a serious car accident in which she sustained "serious, life-threatening injuries" - so no doubt it's nice to have some good news in the family.
