Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has babies on the mind, reports People.  When asked about starting a family with her husband Josh Duhamel, the singer replied, ” Oh yeah, of course.  Not right this second.  [I’m] not pregnant, for the record.  But, yeah.”  Fergie, who is taking a break from the Black Eyed Peas as her bandmates work on solo projects, is glad to be “getting more of that personal time.  Josh and I have gotten to spend a lot more time together this year than other years, which is great.”

How do you know it’s time to start building a family with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

Starting a family is one of the biggest changes your life will ever face.  Here are a few ways to determine if you’re ready:

1. Your marriage is in a good place: Make sure that you and your husband are absolutely comfortable together and that your marriage is happy and stable before bringing a baby into the world.

2. Financial stability: Children are expensive.  Before having a child, make sure your bank accounts are able to handle the burden.  Being financially stable will save you from much frustration down the line.

3. Your feelings: Analyze your own feelings on the subject.  If you don’t feel 100 percent ready to start a family, then don’t.  You need to be completely sure of your decision before you commit to such a life-changing experience.
