After laughing off rumours that his marriage to Katy Perry is on the rocks, Russell Brand has revealed that he is ready for the pitter-patter of tiny feet.
There were whispers earlier in the week that the former wild boy was about to be dumped by his pop star wife, despite just a year of marriage.
However, the 36-year-old poured cold water on such talk by declaring: "I am really happily married. I would like one (a baby)."
“I love those little babies in the beginning. They’re so lovely in that bit. “Me and Katy are the godparents to two twin boys.
“At first they were boring. They were just essentially little fluid factories, generating fluids with no regard for what I was wearing.
“Now they are interesting. They smile and look at me and wonder. “I’m just observing them like I’m a scientist. I can learn from them.”
The comic admitted though that despite having designs on a settled family life, he was still prone to the odd bout of wild behavior, albeit within reason.
