Earlier this month, rumors were circulating saying So You Think You Can Dance guest star, Fergie, 37, and husband Josh Duhamel, 40, were expecting a baby. However, when Duhamel walked the Safe Haven red carpet and was asked if there was any “new news on the family-planning front,” he simply said ‘no.” But all that’s changed and the happy couple have announced that they are indeed having a baby! Take the jump for more details.
According to US Weekly, Fergie took to Twitter on Feb. 18 to share the exciting news. “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!” she wrote, along with a superimposed photo of her and Duhamel as children. Sounds like she’s already wondering what their little bundle of joy will look like.
Duhamel shared the same message with his fans on Twitter and Facebook. A source close to the couple said, “They just found out and tweeted it to the world.”
Fergie and Duhamel tied the knot in January 2009 in Malibu and since then, both have expressed the desire to start a family. However, their idea of how many children they would have was definitely not the same. Duhamel originally wanted a brood of five children but Fergie quickly applied the brakes and convinced him to settle on a smaller number. “We negotiated that early on…Two is our number,” she said.
Last October while appearing on Oprah’s Next Chapter, Duhamel said he and Fergie were on the same page when it came to raising their children because they “grew up in very similar ways.” He explained, “My mother was a teacher. Both of her parents were teachers. We both had to work for what we got. We’re both Catholic.” He added, “There are a lot of things that were really compatible between us.”
Join us in congratulating Fergie and Duhamel on their exciting news!
