Bernard Gallacher is cool with the news

Bernard Gallacher and his wife said they were ‘very happy’ at the news that their daughter Laura is pregnant by Russell Brand, but this news has to be a shocker for any parent.
Laura Gallacher, whose sister is television presenter Kirsty Gallacher, is five months pregnant with Brand’s first child.
The 27-year-old recently rekindled her on-off relationship with Brand, 41, which began when she was a teenager in 2006.
This year the couple moved into a £3.3million cottage in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
Brand has a long list of high-profile former girlfriends, including Jemima Khan, Courtney Love, Kate Moss and Geri Halliwell.
Bernard Gallacher and his wife brought up their children Kirsty, Jamie and Laura on the Wentworth Estate in Virginia Water, Surrey where he was a legendary golf pro.
Laura first started dating Brand just as his career began to take off ten years ago. The relationship ended abruptly but the pair remained in touch.
That’s a tough one for any parent to get their head round, but we wish them luck. Maybe a bit of golf will chill him out.
