Who Is Russell Brand’s Current Wife, Laura Gallacher?

People don’t think they can be surprised by anything that Russell Brand does anymore. He started as a funny man, then turned into the “bad guy” fans hated because he broke up with Katy Perry over text. While Perry has moved on from the heartbreak, Brand has had a heck of a time trying to get back on track.

His addictions were getting out of control, and a lot of his comedy started skewing in a direction that the general public didn’t really like. Fortunately, he cleaned up his act and has now built a new life with his childhood sweetheart, Laura Gallacher. Many fans were amazed at how his wife kept him grounded, but who is Laura, and what is their life like today?

Who Is Laura Gallacher?

Laura Brand, formerly known as Laura Gallacher, may look familiar to some as she is the sister of Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher. She is also the daughter of famous golfer Bernard Gallacher. She used to work in the restaurant industry but moved forward in the fashion business.

She has since created the online shop, The Joy Journal, a brand that sells unique dungarees on the website – which she says she was inspired to launch after making a pair for a pal. “I wanted to give her something personal and fun. She’s an artistic woman and Mum to two young children,” she explained.

“Then it clicked. I’d create her some baby pink work overalls, personalized with her name, something that is full of joy, in which she can create joy. Other friends saw them and wanted them, I made more…,” she further added.

Her venture into the world of fashion has been such a success that Laura authored and released her own book called The Joy Journal, which features 50 activities parents and children can do together. “I have a love of creative craft and I have put that love into writing and illustrating a book…,” she said.

From being a former restaurateur, artist, yoga instructor, to a book author, Laura is a success in her own right. No doubt she’s able to inspire her husband, Russell. After everything went sour with Katy Perry, the comedian has found the woman to whom his heart belongs. But how did the couple meet?

How Did Russell Brand And Laura Gallacher Meet?

Everyone loves a good celebrity love story. Just like hearing that a friend finally met his soulmate, it is inspiring to know that people have found The One. Russell Brand may have married Katy in the past but he’s head over heels for Laura Gallacher. Let’s take a look at how he first laid eyes on her.

The award-winning actor randomly bumped into his childhood sweetheart, Laura, at a canal in 2015. The duo was an item as teenagers before things ended unexpectedly, but they decided to give things another try and fortunately tied the knot two years later in 2017 at Remenham Church near their home in Henley-on-Thames, England.

Laura said in a 2019 interview, “When we first met we were both in a completely different place.” She further explained that she “immediately knew” their relationship was going to be serious when they started dating again. She admitted, “I hadn’t seen Russell for years… I came down the steps to the canal and Russell was standing there. We both immediately knew it was going to be serious.”

The book authored continued, “I never imagined we would be sitting there having this conversation, so much time has passed but I have a deep appreciation and love for this person even though I don’t know this person now. He was so different.” She also explained that they had to “rebuild foundations and trust again” but she is confident they did it the “right way.”

Russell, on the other hand, admitted that he changed a lot before reconnecting with Laura, who he first dated when she was just 19 years old. “I don’t compare my relationships now to previous relationships out of respect to my present wife and to Katy Perry,” he said.

The comedian also added, “I think I’m an easier person to be with now. I’m also in a very different situation. I’m dependent on my wife. In relationships, there is always going to be a level of dependency. But I try not to project my problems onto other people and perhaps I’ve not always been like that.”

Russell and Laura started their own family and are parents to two daughters, Mabel and Peggy. Speaking about the time he found out she was pregnant, Laura said, “He really wanted to become a father. He dropped to the floor and he was just absolutely over the moon.”

Has Laura Gallacher Met Her Husband’s Ex?

While Russell and Katy wanted to keep the separation amicable, many may wonder if the comedian’s wife Laura has ever met her husband’s ex-wife. It appears that they haven’t met each other, and of course, with no children shared between the exes, it seems unlikely they’d ever meet.
