Pregnant Fergie Timed Her Baby Around Black Eyed Peas Band Break

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie times her baby news around band break

Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas has revealed she timed her pregnancy to coincide with a break from the band.

The singer said she was determined not to be 'one of those girls touring with a bun in the oven' and only started trying for a baby after her 2011 world tour ended.

Speaking to WWD, the excited first-time mum-to-be said she knew she had to be at home with husband Josh Duhamel to 'make it happen'.

"I knew I had to get off tour to be pregnant - I wasn't going to be one of those girls touring with a bun in the oven... I knew I had to get home to make this happen. I have my hands and plate full now," she said.

"Being pregnant, it's great to do a lot of work from home. I do it being comfortable and not worrying about hair and make-up. As far as what I'm going to do when the child comes? I have no idea what I'm going to tell you."

Fergie also revealed that she and Josh will probably only have two children – despite previously saying she wanted five!

"It's important that you want the same thing, if you're going to go on this path together," she said.
