Russell Brand says sweet things about Katy Perry that might make you feel sad inside

Now Russ has gone and said some things about his ex which might make your eyes go slightly red – from tears that is. He revealed during an interview in the US that he was very “into” the idea of having kids with the singer.

"I was really into the idea of marriage and having children," he said. "She's a good person, I've got nothing but love for her. I loved her so much, [but the divorce] just seemed like the sensible thing to do ... I just loved her so much."

"I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other ... We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn't we worked it out ... It was a lovely relationship ... it mostly didn't work for practical reasons ..."

"I don't want anything to hurt her. She's younger than me, she's a young woman and she's beautiful and she's sensitive and I care about her deeply ... I don't want to be too glib."

And so with that in mind he ended his commentary about the break-up on a positive note saying that perhaps things had indeed worked out for the best for the two:

"We did work it out, she's happy, I'm happy."

Someone pass us the tissues will you? We need a good cry.
