When asked about their plans for a baby on a visit to the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, Russell replied, “I would like one. I love those little babies in the beginning. They’re so lovely in that bit.”
The funny star went on to reveal that they’ve been practicing their parenting skills on their 1-year-old godchildren.
“Me and Katy are godparents to two twin boys. They’re called Sam and Donovan. At first they were boring. They were just essentially little fluid factories, generating fluids — no regard for what I was wearing. Now, they are interesting. They smile and look at me and wonder… I’m just observing them like I’m a scientist….. I can learn from them. Me and Katy are their godparents, which means we’re responsible for their spiritual growth. Should be interesting.”
Russell also, in typical fashion, put to rest the tabloid talk that he and his wife of just over a year are heading for a split: “There are always rumors aren’t there? In the end you have to just not engage with Internet technology, which is difficult because [of] a lot of the nude women websites I quite enjoy. But they’ve had to go. I’ve treated the whole Internet now like it’s a wicked little liar. Yeah. I am really happily married.”
