Singer [artist id=”1163321″]Christina Milian[/artist] announced on Friday that she and her husband, [artist id=”2801312″]The-Dream[/artist], are expecting their first child, according to People magazine.
“My husband and I are expecting,” said Milian, who the magazine notes is already sporting a baby bump. “We’re about four and a half months along, about 19 weeks. We’re really excited.”
The couple married last month in Las Vegas , and soon after, rumors, began to surface that the newlyweds were also expecting a bundle of joy. They were also rumored to have had a second wedding ceremony in Rome.
Until now they have been mum about the rumors and Milian explains that neither the wedding nor the baby have come too soon for the couple. “Honestly, it was kind of planned,” she said. “We were engaged for many months.”
And although Milian worked with her new husband on her upcoming album, Elope , which was titled before the couple were married and is due out by the beginning of next year, she said the album title had nothing to do with their romance.
“Actually, the name change came … I don’t know if I was engaged yet, but it really didn’t have anything to do with that. ’it [was] more so’ about taking a step as a woman and making decisions on my own and doing things without necessarily the permission of others. And I think that’s really more about adulthood and coming into adulthood,” she explained about the title’s significance. “I think that’s where we came up with that one.”
