Josh Duhamel and Fergie have announced that they have a baby on the way, something the pair had been looking forward to for quite some time.

Fergie first announced the news on Twitter Monday writing, “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump,” along with a superimposed image of the two stars as adorable babies. Duhamel soon followed his wife’s lead by posting the photo along with the message, “Fergie and Me and BABY makes three #MyLovelyBabyBump,” on his Facebook page.

Both Duhamel and Fergie have spoken openly about their desire to start their own brood. “We hope to have a baby pretty soon," the Safe Haven actor told Hollyscoop in December 2011. "I've always loved kids, so I can't wait to have them myself. I'm excited about it." On Rachel Ray in September, Fergie told the host, “We do hope for children and that will be coming up, but it’s not yet.” Earlier this month Duhamel told Parade magazine, ”When I do become a father, it will be my greatest achievement."

The expecting couple married in January 2009 after dating for four years. After making their pregnancy announcement on Monday, Duhamel and Fergie were spotted at Los Angeles International Airport. It’s suspected that Fergie is accompanying her husband across the pond to promote his new movie Safe Haven, speaking at the Regeant Street Apple store in London with costar Julianne Hough and author Nicholas Sparks on Tuesday.
