These days, Russell Brand has settled down as both a husband and a father 鈥 but that doesn鈥檛 mean he doesn鈥檛 have fond memories of his former life. In fact, the man who was once married to Katy Perry has nothing but positive things to say about their time together.

鈥淚t鈥檚 a bit difficult to tell what鈥檚 going on in such a situation,鈥 Brand admitted while sitting down for a chat on The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday. Still, when speaking out about his previous relationship, he said he now has a rather fond view of the time he spent with the 鈥淪wish Swish鈥 singer. 鈥淸I]t was a very, very wonderful time,鈥 he expressed.

Married in October 2010 during a traditional Hindu ceremony, the couple announced their split just 14 months later. The singer claimed in an interview with Vogue back in 2013 that she hadn鈥檛 鈥渉eard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.鈥 She also revealed to Marie Claire that Brand wanted to have children, while she didn鈥檛 feel like she was ready.

The comedian, on the other hand, blamed Perry鈥檚 rising fame for issues in their marriage, as well as her reluctance to take on roles of activism at the time (a fact that has since changed drastically).

Despite all of this, Brand now asserts that he always cared for his ex-wife. 鈥淪he was lovely,鈥 he told Williams this week. 鈥淪he鈥檚 such a lovely person; I鈥檝e got nothing but love for her.鈥
