Black Eyed Peas Singer, Fergie, is Expecting at Age 37

a blog by Claire, February 19, 2013

“The Duchess” is pregnant…and we don’t mean Kate Middleton!

Fergie A.K.A. Stacy Ferguson (37) and husband Josh Duhamel (40) are expecting. Ferguson joins the ranks of celebrity moms-to-be over the age of 35. There has been no mention on whether the couple used fertility treatments to conceive, but being over the age of 35 does come with a decline in fertility and increased risk of pregnancy complications. It is often recommended that expecting mothers of advanced maternal age seek medical supervision of a high-risk maternal fetal medicine doctor (MFM).

The couple posted their respective announcements alongside a photo of Ferguson and Duhamel as toddlers on Monday via Twitter. "Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump,” the singer exclaimed on her social platform. The couple has been married for four years and this will be their first child together.

Rumors have long been circulating that Fergie is pregnant, but Duhamel has continually assured the media there was no baby news to share.

Whether or not the couple used fertility treatments to conceive, we’re thrilled for the couple and wish them a happy and healthy pregnancy.

I saw Fergie at Southern California Reproductive Center in Beverly Hills several times. It must have been very difficult for her even with treatment because we were there at the time and I have a one year old and her baby is only two months old. I'm so happy it finally worked for them!
