Despite daily divorce rumours making the rounds, Russell Brand insists that he and Katy Perry will soon be expanding their family. Russell's role as godfather to his friend's one-year-old twins has brought out his paternal side and the boys have taught him about the joy of nurturing and care.
When asked by TV host Ellen DeGeneres if he and his pop star wife are planning a family, Russell replied: "I would like one. I love those little babies in the beginning. They’re so lovely in that bit. Me and Katy are godparents to two twin boys.
"At first they were boring. They were just essentially little fluid factories, generating fluids - 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.”
Russell takes his role as godfather seriously, and insists he will be responsible for their "spiritual growth".
He added: "I can learn from them. Me and Katy are their godparents, which means we’re responsible for their spiritual growth. Should be interesting.”
Katy recently revealed she is taking a year off now that her 'California Dreams Tour' has ended to concentrate on having a baby with her husband.
In his The Ellen DeGeneres Show interview, Russell also brushed off rumours that their marriage was in trouble.
He joked, "There are always rumours, 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.
“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.”
