More than a year after his wedding to pop star Katy Perry, Russell Brand is starting to think about babies.
On Thursday, while sitting for an interview for Friday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the British comedian and actor said he longs to hear the pitter-patter of little feet.
“Katy says you are going to try and start a family. Are you going to have a family?” Ellen asked.
“I would like one. I love those little babies in the beginning,” Russell answered.
“Yeah, that’s how they start out,” Ellen chimed in.
“They’re so lovely in that bit. Me and Katy are godparents to two twin boys. They’re called Sam and Donovan,” Russell said of the 1-year-olds.
Russell went on to say he’s made some observations about babies.
“At first they were boring. They were just essentially little fluid factories, generating fluids — no regard for what I was wearing,” he said. “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,” Russell continued. “Me and Katy are their godparents, which means we’re responsible for their spiritual growth. Should be interesting.”
During his “Ellen” visit, Russell also hit back at the rumors he and Katy have split.
“There are always rumors aren’t there? In the end you have to just not engage with Internet technology, which is difficult because [of] a lot of the nude women websites I quite enjoy,” he said with a laugh. “But they’ve had to go. I’ve treated the whole Internet now like it’s a wicked little liar. Yeah. I am really happily married.”
