Turns out the rumors were true.
Fergie took to Twitter today (Feb. 18) to announce that she and hubby Josh Duhamel are expecting their first child together. “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump,” she posted, along with a picture of her and Duhamel as toddlers.
Duhamel tweeted the same photo.
Her rep also released a statement to Just Jared, saying, “Yes, Fergie is pregnant!! We are pleased to confirm the news.”
Reports were swirling for the past few weeks after Fergie was photographed wearing baggy clothes and sporting what looked to be a blossoming baby bump. But Duhamel shot down the rumors, telling E! News there was “no news.”
Fergie, 37, and Duhamel, 40, who tied the knot in Jan. 2009 after dating for four years, have never been shy about their desire to start a family. “We do hope for children and that will be coming up, but it’s not yet,” Fergie told Rachael Ray in September.
Well, the time has finally arrived! Congrats to the happy couple.
