Stefani's baby bump became increasingly obvious recently

The news comes on the back of growing speculation surrounding the singer's uterus, as Gwen had been spotted on various occasions of late with what looked like a burgeoning baby bump. Reports first began to emerge in September last year that the two were expecting their third child and these reports reemerged after Christmas. Stefani was spotted visiting friends in Beverley Hills, with what looked like a clear baby bump or the sign of way too much turkey on 26 December and was spotted again in Beverley Hills with her belly sticking out days later, however the singer and her husband remained quiet as to whether there was another baby on the way.

Her confirmation comes as the bump has gotten far too obvious to hide

There have been few other details released regarding Stefani's pregnancy, but judging by the size of her bump already the singer is presumed to already be some way along in her pregnancy. This will be Gwen and Gavin's third child together and their third boy as well. Kingston James McGregor Rossdale was born on 26 May, 2006, and his brother Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale was born 21 August, 2008.

Stefani and Rosdale were married in mid 2002 after seven years together as a couple, with the pair first exchanging vows at St Paul's in Covent Garden, London, before holding a second wedding in Los Angeles two weeks later.
