British comedian Russell Brand has revealed that he was completely open to having children with his former wife Katy Perry. When speaking to Howard Stern on his radio show on Wednesday, the shock jock prodded him about Russell about his ex.
Russell said, “She’s young, successful and dedicated. You can’t fully understand it until you do it. I was really into the idea of marriage and having children.”
The duo married on October 23, 2010 in an intimate ceremony in India. Russell commented that they enjoyed a good 14 months together of wedded bliss. He said, “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.”
He 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.”
