Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is enjoying her time off with her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, after being on the road eight years touring with her group the Black Eyed Peas.  “We like each other.  We like hanging out together and we have fun,” Fergie told MTV News.  “We have fun in the kitchen cooking and singing silly songs.  Not to give too much away — I’m not going any further than that — but we have a good time together, and it’s nice to get to have that quality time.  We enjoy it.”  Though they recently celebrated their three-year anniversary, don’t expect the Hollywood duo to make a pregnancy announcement anytime soon.  “It’s not happening yet, I can tell you that definitely,” the singer says.  “But we want to have a family, so that’s in the cards, but it’s just not this second.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Having kids is usually the next step to take after marriage.  Here’s how to determine when you and your spouse should start planning for your new addition to the family:

1. Live like newlyweds for a while: Enjoy your time with your spouse for a little while before having kids.  The first few years of your marriage are when you and your lover can take advantage of spoiling each other with “just because” gifts and enjoy your time together taking romantic vacations.

2. You’ve done what you wanted to do: For some people, their life truly begins when they have kids, but if you’re the type of person that wants to live a little before having children, then be a little selfish and cross some things off of your bucket list.

3. You’re ready to expand your family: After treating your puppy as though it’s your own kid and both you and your spouse still feel like something is missing in your life, then it may be time to start planning for a family.
