Fergie Using Black Eyed Peas Hiatus to Have Josh Duhamel's Babies

The Black Eyed Peas indefinite hiatus -- which will be capped with a farewell concert at Sun Life Stadium November 23 -- now has a more definite cause. According to rapper Taboo, his bandmate and National Anthem specialist Fergie wants to get pregnant and start a family with husband Josh Duhamel, and taking some time off gives her the space she needs for children.

"The Black Eyed Peas taking a little break is something that we respect

and we all agreed upon," Taboo exclusively told New Times. "We have to respect Ferg. Ferg is our sister. She

definitely wants to have a family, and we're happy for her."

Updated: Will.i.am is using this extra time to go solo, and has recorded a track with Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez.

The rest of our conversation with Taboo will come later this month as the group's final show for a long time approaches, but we thought it worthwhile to share the parts that discuss Fergie's entrance into diapers and motherhood -- a topic that completely took us off guard. Based upon what Taboo says, Fergie and Josh don't have a baby on the way just yet, but it could be quite soon.

How often have you gotten to reflect on the success of Black Eyed Peas since things have taken off?

We reflect on a daily basis... We are very humbled and very privileged by the experience. We never take it for granted. That's the respect level that the Black Eyed Peas have for one another. That's why the Black Eyed Peas taking a little break is something that we respect and we all agreed upon. We have to respect Ferg. Ferg is our sister. She definitely wants to have a family, and we're happy for her. And we're going to keep being a strong family being there and supporting her.

So a lot of the Black Eyed Peas' break is to give her space and time to build a family?

You have to, dude. Once you start putting orders and cock-blocking certain situations, things start going sour. You can't neglect. You can't not respect people's wishes. As our sister, we have to give her space.

Have you thought about what gift you'd give Fergie's kid?

When that time comes, I'll get to that point. Right now, she's still. I don't know if they're working on that yet. She's focusing on getting through this year, finishing up strong with the Peas. When that time comes -- it doesn't just happen like "Oh, I'm pregnant tomorrow." It's gotta be planned out. And I think she and Josh deserve it. They're such a great couple.
