Russell Brand is a first-time father!

The comedian has reportedly welcomed his first child into the world with fiancé Laura Gallacher, 27.

The 41-year-old made the announcement on Sunday while onstage during a stand-up show in Nottingham, England, according to The Mirror.

"He was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9 p.m. as he 'needed to get down the f--king M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby,'" said audience member Daniel Crann.

The Brit confirmed that he and Gallacher, a lifestyle blogger, were expecting when he took to Instagram to share a shot of himself posing with “The Expectant Dad’s Handbook.”

"Right then. My Mum bought me this. Time to get ready! #trewlit #bookstagram #parenting," he captioned the pic, which shows his eyes wide in what could be interpreted as fear of what’s to come.

But the “Get Him to the Greek” star recently revealed that he was very much looking forward to the idea of becoming a dad. "I feel lit up by the idea I'm very excited about becoming a dad and I'm preparing myself," he said in an interview with British magazine ES. "I am just getting ready to be with a new little person and see what it is they want."

Brand and Gallacher dated on and off since 2007 but have been together ever since 2015, when they rekindled their romance. No word yet on the sex or name of their little bundle of joy.

Congrats to the happy couple!
