Fergie and her husband Josh Duhamel apparently feel they are in a “brilliant” place to start a family.

The Black Eyed Peas singer, real name Stacy Ferguson, recently announced she is expecting a baby with her actor spouse. Rumours had circulated for weeks that the singer was pregnant, and she finally confirmed the news via an announcement on her Twitter page.

Those close to the 37-year-old star claim she is happy to put her partying days behind her and embrace motherhood.
“Fergie feels she’s finally ready to become a mom,” a source told British magazine Closer. “She and Josh have been through a lot and they’re in a brilliant place to start a family.”

It’s not yet known how far along Fergie is, but the singer has been wearing noticeably oversized clothes for several weeks and is believed to be around three months pregnant.

While sharing childhood pictures of herself and Josh, Fergie announced her happy news on Twitter in mid-February.
"Josh & Me & BABY makes three," she wrote, adding the hashtag, “#MyLovelyBabyBump”.

Fergie has been the subject of baby rumours for some time, and previously admitted the focus on her parenting plans was tough to cope with at times.

“People ask me if I’m pregnant every time I fluctuate by a few pounds!” she explained last year.

Fergie and Josh married in January 2009 after five years of dating.

Safe Haven actor Josh recently revealed that being a father will be his “greatest life achievement”.
