Russell Brand was open to having children with ex-wife Katy Perry!
The 37-year-old comedian revealed his desire to start a family with the pop star before their split in his first interview since the divorce. Russell appeared on Howard Stern’s Sirius/XM radio show Wednesday (18.07.12) and said: ”She’s young, successful and dedicated. [The reality is] you can’t fully understand it until you do it. I was really into the idea of marriage and having children.”
Russell explained that they enjoyed a good 14 months together after their wedding on October 23, 2010 in India. ”She’s a good person, I’ve got nothing but love for her. I loved her so much, it just seemed like the sensible thing to do … I just loved her so much. This isn’t really working out, it’s a difficult situation … I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other … We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn’t we worked it out … It was a lovely relationship … it mostly didn’t work for practical reasons … We did work it out, she’s happy, I’m happy.”
The ‘Rock of Ages’ star added: ”I don’t want anything to hurt her. She’s younger than me, she’s a young woman and she’s beautiful and she’s sensitive and I care about her deeply … I don’t want to be too glib.”
