He’s had plenty of practice, but it seems Russell Brand is ready to start making babies with wife Katy Perry.

The British funnyman – whose marriage to the US pop star last October put paid to his previous wild womanising – has been telling the world he’s ready for a family.

“I love children. I am very much looking forward to becoming a dad. Who knows when? Soon I hope,” he said.

But the Los Angeles-based star admits he would rather raise his brood in Britain.

“I secretly want to do that. I have a fear of hearing my American children speak to me in American accents,” he confessed.

But when it comes to parenting, he could do with a few pointers.

“I go nuts with children,” he told OK! magazine. “So when I’m around my friends’ children, I jazz the kids up, I swear at them, I get them all worked up, I say crazy stuff to them. I fill their heads with nonsense and then leave them.”

Good luck Katy is all we can say…
