That awkward moment when a star insists your baby is his.

Can’t you feel the heat between them? Um…

Could Russell Brand be the father of Fifi Box‘s two-year-old daughter?

Well, no, not really. But it’s funny anyway.

He was interviewed on The Project last week, and in a snippet that didn’t make it to air, Brand becomes highly animated upon the mention of radio personality Box.

“Now Russell, one of our hosts is Fifi Box and we understand you …” host Gorgi Coghlan began.

“You’re joking, where is she?! Tell her I wanna see my kid,” said the apparently absent father.

Brand is a renowned lothario, but Fifi Box insists she’s not a notch on his bedpost.

Box appeared last night to set the record straight.

“It’s not Russell’s, OK?”

She and Brand have met before. Apparently the last time she interviewed him, Brand found it difficult to control himself.

“By the end of the interview he was straddling me, grinding me inappropriately and trying to kiss me,” she told news.com.au.

Um. Lovely. We think you can sue for that, Fifi.
