English comedian Russell Brand is a married man.

The BBC said Brand, 42, and Scottish lifestyle blogger Laura Gallacher married Saturday near the town of Henley-on-Thames in England’s Oxfordshire county north of London. Brand confirmed to on his Radio X podcast that, “I’m living a married life now . . . I’m domestic,” said the BBC. The two have a nearly 10-month-old daughter.

“Congratulations on your marriage, Laura and Russell,” the London designer-shoe boutique Freya Rose wrote on Facebook, with a photo of the bride in an embroidered, floor-length white gown, hugging Brand, who wore a blue three-piece suit and what appeared to be gray suede boots. “You looked beautiful, Laura.”

Neither Brand nor Gallacher have commented on social media, nor has Gallacher’s sister, U.K. television personality Kirsty Gallacher. The sisters’ father is retired British golf champion Bernard Gallacher.

Brand previously was married to pop star Katy Perry, who coincidentally was hosting the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. The two had wed in India on Oct. 23, 2010, but endured a troubled marriage. Brand announced in December 2011 that they were divorcing, and the marriage formally ended on July 16, 2012.

Brand and Gallacher dated intermittedly since 2007, and reignited their relationship in 2015, according to Us Weekly and other outlets. Their first child was born last November, with Kirsty Gallacher tweeting on Nov. 9 that she was “proud to be an auntie for first time... well done to @DaisyPoppets & @rustyrockets,” the couple’s Twitter handles.
