During an appearance on ITV's Lorraine last year, Russell revealed that he's never felt more content since becoming a father. "It's so extraordinary to find such comfort and peace in a way things are obvious, getting married, having baby, I feel very relaxed, surprised but relaxed," he said. "I was watching my wife singing to our daughter, I thought wow this is happening, I am the father in this relationship, it felt beautiful." He added: "The actual birth bit is brilliant, surprising, amazing. I saw how mental it was my wife’s birth was a crazy world, I was on the periphery. The midwives were dominating, I was scuttling around, and jealous of the oxygen she was on."
