Grammy-nominated pop star expecting first child

December 20, 2005 12:00 AM ET

Five time Grammy nominated Gwen Stefani is approximately three months pregnant, according to US Weekly. The magazine reports that family members close to both Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale confirmed the news. This would be the first child for the pop star and No Doubt frontwoman, 36, and the second for the former Bush frontman, 38.

Douglas Rossdale, Gavin's father, told the London US Weekly office, "We are delighted." Stefani's mother, Patti, also confirmed the pregnancy to the magazine's Los Angeles office. The artists' publicists have yet to personally confirm the report.

The charismatic singer for pop-ska superstars No Doubt, Stefani broke out as a solo artist last year with the release of her debut, Love, Angel, Music, Baby. The album went on to sell big, and was recently nominated for five Grammys -- including Album of the Year and Record of the Year, for the single "Hollaback Girl."

Stefani and Rossdale were wed in 2002. Their baby is reportedly due in June.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
