Pop star Gwen Stefani showed off her pregnant figure during a family trip to see the circus in Los Angeles.
Ms Stefani, 44, was seen wearing black leggings and leather boots, with a black jumper that stretched over her bump. She already has two children, Kingson James McGregor, aged 7, and Zuman Nesta Rock, aged 5, and she was taking them to see Cirque du Soleil when she was spotted.
It is believed that Ms Stefani and her husband, Gavin Rossdale, who have been married for 11 years, were hoping that the new arrival would be a girl, but scans seem to have dashed that hope, as they revealed that the baby will be a boy. In a chat to Instagram, the expectant mother joked that she had been ready to "hand over the crown", but that she will now still be "queen of the house" in the Stefani household once the new baby arrives.
Despite her advancing pregnancy, reports state that Ms Stefani is determined to carry on with her musical career as normal. A close associate revealed that she is still attending social functions as though she were not pregnant and that she is disinclined to even chat about her pregnancy with friends.
