Tue., Feb. 19, 2013, midnight

Fergi e is pregnant with her first child.

A representative for the Black Eyed Peas singer confirmed the news Monday. Fergie’s actor husband, Josh Duhamel, tweeted about the news with joy, saying: “Fergie and Me and BABY makes three.”

The 37-year-old Fergie and 40-year-old Duhamel married in 2009. She joined the Black Eyed Peas when the group released its third album, “Elephunk,” in 2003. The foursome is known for its pop-inspired hip-hop tunes like “My Humps,” “I Gotta Feeling” and “Boom Boom Pow.”

Fergie launched her solo debut, “The Duchess,” to much success in 2006.

Duhamel has appeared in the “Transformer” films and most recently in “Safe Haven.”

First lady’s midlife crisis led to bangs

Michelle Obama jokingly says a midlife crisis is what inspired her new haircut with bangs.

The first lady revealed the new hairstyle last month on her 49th birthday, which came a few days before the festivities for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.

Mrs. Obama was asked about the new haircut during an interview with talk-show host Rachael Ray.

Said Mrs. Obama: “This is my midlife crisis.” She added that she cut her bangs because she can’t get a sports car and won’t be allowed to bungee jump.

The interview was conducted via Skype and is scheduled to air on Wednesday.

A few last words from late singer

Some final words from the late Mexican-American singer and TV star Jenni Rivera will be out this summer.

Atria Books announced Monday it’s publishing a memoir by the multimillion-selling artist, who died in a plane crash in December at age 43. “Unbreakable,” coming out in English and Spanish, is scheduled for July and has been authorized by Rivera’s family.

Rosie Rivera, the late singer’s sister, said the family had decided to share Rivera’s book with her fans so they could “enjoy her as we have.”

“I miss my sister every moment, but on days that I want to feel her close, I open her book written in her own words, and feel her right next to me,” Rosie Rivera said in a statement issued by Atria.

Rivera had worked on “Unbreakable” for several years and completed it before her death, Atria spokesman Paul Olsewski said.
