An audience member told The Mirror that the 41-year-old Get Him to the Greek star shared that his fiancée, Laura Gallacher, had given birth before exiting the stage.

"He didn't confirm if it was a girl or a boy,” the fan told the U.K. newspaper. “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***ing M21 as my girlfriend has just had a baby.'"

The newspaper also reported that the baby arrived last week and that a fan had congratulated the entertainer on a “baby girl.”

Brand confirmed rumors of Gallacher’s pregnancy in July, posting a photo on Instagram showing him reading The Expectant Dad’s Handbook.
