WILSON PHILLIPS star Carnie Wilson and her rocker husband Rob Bonfiglio are celebrating after learning they're set to become first-time parents.

The 36-year-old singer, who underwent gastric surgery bypass in 1999, was once told her morbid obesity would prevent her from having a healthy birth - if she ever became pregnant.

The couple are refusing to give details of the child's sex or the birth date at this time.

Wilson's news means all three members of the reformed Wilson Phillips are expecting at the same time - Chynna Phillips and her actor husband BILLY BALDWIN are expecting their third child and Carnie's sister Wendy Wilson is expecting her second child.
