Josh Duhamel and Fergie expecting son

Josh Duhamel playfully revealed on an American daytime talk show that he and pregnant wife Fergie are expecting a boy.

The 40-year-old actor and his singer wife Fergie are currently expecting their first child together.

It has been suspected for months that the pair were having a boy after Josh constantly referred to the new arrival as “he” while talking about childproofing their home.

Josh confirmed the rumours during his Tuesday appearance on daytime TV talk programme LIVE with Kelly and Michael.

During a segment called Du or Don’t, Part II: Baby Edition, hostess Kelly Ripa held up one pink and one blue pair of onesies. After asking Josh whether it was a boy or a girl, the actor playfully chose one and held up the blue onesie proudly to a cheering audience.

Josh has vowed to put his career on hold momentarily just after his baby arrives in the fall.

He wants to be around his wife and child as much as possible.

"I plan on taking as much time as I can off just before and as much time as possible after," he told ET Canada recently. "I can't imagine having a kid and then not being able to be there, that would just drive me crazy."

Fergie and Josh married in January 2009 after five years of dating, and he recently revealed that being a dad will be his “greatest life achievement”. The Black Eyed Peas singer announced the happy news on Twitter in mid-February and the 38-year-old star later revealed she was “thrilled” to be starting a family.

Fergie officially changed her last name to Duhamel just days ago.
