Earlier this week, we found out that Russell Brand and Laura Gallacher welcomed a baby girl.

The couple named her Mabel, a name of English origin, meaning lovable.

Last month, during a sit down on the Jonathan Ross Show, Russell chatted about fatherhood and how they’ll raise their little one.

He explained, “I read a different book every week and I read one on preparation for fatherhood to mentally prepare me for it.”

Russell continued, “I don’t know that it has prepared me for it. I’ve painted the room, I’ve done the things that you’re supposed to do, I’ve accepted the idea that that person will be more important than me.”

He added, “‘Jesus Three’ I’m thinking of calling him or her. We don’t know the gender I may not even ever impose a gender upon it, let the child grow up and be the whatever the hell it is, never tell it there is such a concept.”
