London: Funnyman Russell Brand has reportedly taken up yoga in an effort to bond with his unborn child.
The 41-year-old comedian is hoping that practicing the Buddhist meditation will help him to form a connection with the baby he is having with Laura Gallacher, reported Daily Star.
A friend of Brand's said of his new regime, "Russell wants to get close with the baby and has started these daily yoga routines. He takes it really seriously and honestly believes it will help to form a relationship with the child."
Unlike many of his previous relationships that have been very public affairs, Russell has kept this one very low key.
Laura is the sister of TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher. Brand split from Jemima Khan in 2014 and was married to singer Katy Perry from 2010 to 2012.
