They met once again following former hellraiser Russell’s divorce from singer Katy Perry, with Laura saying: ‘I hadn’t seen Russell for years… I came down the steps to the canal and Russell was standing there.

‘We both immediately knew it was going to be serious.’ 

She added that she told Russell: ‘I think I just want to be a mum.’ 

‘I never imagined we would be sitting there having this conversation, so much time has passed but I have a deep appreciation and love for this person even though I don’t know this person now. He was so different.

‘We both immediately wanted the same things. You have to rebuild your foundations and trust again, we did it the right way. It was very slow, it was getting to know each other and going out on day trips together.’

‘Suddenly it went fast, six months later, shall we move in, shall we get a puppy, and then after that I found out I was pregnant. We moved in in November and Valentine’s Day the next year I found out I was pregnant. 

Opening up about Russell’s reaction to the news, she said: ‘He really wanted to become a father. He dropped to the floor and he was just absolutely over the moon.’

The couple share daughters Mabel, three, and Peggy, two.

Laura said she and Russell are discussing adding to their brood but due to suffering from hyperemesis in her pregnancies, she wants to be in the right place. 

She said: ‘We do discuss it. I have to be in  a place to handle a long time of potentially not being myself as I’ve been sick in two pregnancies, I want to get myself to a place where the girls are the right age.

‘Peggy has just turned two, we are having a lot of tantrums. if we’re blessed enough to have another child, we would love to we love parents, then I would absolutely love it.   

Russell previously had a reputation as something of a hellraiser – an anarchic stand-up comedian, a former drug and sex addict and the ex-husband of singer Katy Perry – but has now been clean for 18 years and is an advocate of the 12-step programme.      

The couple, who live in a quiet Oxfordshire village, married in 2017 at an intimate service near their home in Henley-on-Thames.
