Josh Duhamel Already Wants Baby #2 With Fergie

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Valspar Habitat For HumanityIf Josh Duhamel had it his way, he’d want wife Fergie to be pregnant all of the time! “I’m going to miss seeing her walking around the house pregnant,” he told Access Hollywood. “It’s been a really, really great experience and hopefully she’ll wanna do it again soon.”

Fergie is reportedly due any day now with a boy, which Josh seemed to spill on the fly on an episode of LIVE with Kelly and Michael, but he revealed to me it wasn’t as spontaneous as it looked. “I had to get full permission from my wife first!” he explains. The two, who are in major nesting mode, have the nursery, baby gear and clothes all ready for their little man—mostly thanks to the three baby showers Fergie has had.

While they’re saving their baby’s name as a secret (they’re not even telling their parents, because they don’t want anyone else’s opinion!), Josh will say that it’s a traditional name rather than a spoofable one, like North West or Apple Martin.

Now, with baby on the way, Josh is more focused than ever on making a difference by giving back. I caught up with him as he was announcing the kickoff to the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat Campaign, which auctions off celebrity handprints in colorful Valspar paint to raise money for Habitat for Humanity’s Disaster Response program that’s currently serving areas like New York, Oklahoma and Texas. Here’s what he said during our exclusive (though brief!) Q&A:

Has Fergie been singing to the baby a lot?
Yes! We play him music too. It’s funny to see how active he is [inside her belly]–I think we’re going to have our hands full. He’s going to be an active kid, but that’s good, that’s what we want. They say that the more you communicate from outside while he’s still in the womb, the more advanced he’ll be when he comes out, but who knows if any of that’s true.

What’s making you most nervous about becoming a dad?
Until you’ve gone through it, you don’t know what to expect. You try to be prepared and cover every base, but until you actually have it you don’t know.  So I guess it’s fear of the unknown.

What sorts of things are you looking forward to doing most with your son?
I’m just so excited to meet him and hold him, and see what this little guy has been doing in there. I can’t wait to show him off to my family and friends–even just taking him with me to breakfast in the morning. Everything that goes with being a parent is what I’ve always wanted to do.  It’s going to be life-changing for sure.

Have you settled on a push present for Fergie yet?
No, I should probably do that, huh?  But you know what, going through pregnancy and growing a baby…if there was ever a gift that a woman has earned, it’s a push present!
——————-

What Josh wants you to know about his involvement with Valspar and Habitat for Humanity: “After what happened in my hometown in North Dakota in 2011, I can understand a lot better what some of these families are going through that were hit by disaster. Habitat has worked closely with low-income families to help them rebuild their lives–not just their homes, but their lives, and Valspar has donated all the paint for Habitat’s builds. People can get involved with the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat campaign by going on to the Valspar Facebook page and bidding on some of these canvases with the handprints donated by various celebrities, and all that money will go toward Habitat’s Disaster Response Program.  Valspar not only donates all the paint for Habitat builds, but they will donate $1000 for every handprint auction contributed.”

TELL US: Do you think Fergie should get pregnant right away? How long do you think you should wait between kids?

Did Kim Kardashian confirm she’s having a baby girl?

Monday, May 20th, 2013

Expecting daughterWhen you’re pregnant, you have to get used to people constantly asking you whether you’re having a boy or a girl, because inquiring minds want to know! And when it’s too early for the doctor to tell you, family, friends and complete strangers all have a theory based on whether your bump is sitting high or low, when you conceived, what foods you’re craving yours and your guy’s astrological signs—the craziest stuff imaginable!

Well, when you’re a reality star like Kim Kardashian, who has opened up your entire life to the cameras, of course people are more than just a little curious. But Kim and her future-baby daddy, Kanye West, have been hush-hush about whether they’re expecting a boy or girl—until now.

For months, there has been speculation. In February, Us Weekly reported a source close to Kim spilled the beans that she was having a daughter. But then all signs pointed to her having a son: Kim’s bump was sitting low, she must be having a boy! Kim’s BFFL, Jonathan Cheban, is photographed buying a blue teddy bear—it’s a boy! Stepdad Bruce Jenner slips and reveals it’s a boy by saying, “Motherhood is…all of a sudden this little guy comes…” then recovers by saying, “Or gal comes out…and boy your life changes forever.”

Without even saying a word, Kim seems to have let the cat, er baby, out of the bag by way of her shower invitations. E! News reports (and they should know since Keeping Up With the Kardashians is on the network!) that the invites to Kim’s June 2 baby shower included a music box that played Kanye’s tune “Hey Mama” while a mini ballerina twirled. Doesn’t sound like a boy-themed bash to me! Kanye has said all along he’s wanted a girl, and Kim is as girly as they get, so it sounds like the perfect fit for the pair.

And in other baby news, TMZ reports that Kim and the baby will be going out on tour with Kanye this fall, and she has already requested cribs and soundproof hotel rooms for every stop on the tour. It sounds like it’s getting down to crunch time on Kimye’s cutie, and she is going to be just as big of a globetrotter as both of her parents. I can’t wait to see her tiny wardrobe. I’m expecting a lot of Givenchy in her future!

Tell us: Did you guess Kim was having a girl? Have people tried to predict what you’re having? Share your stories in the comments below.
