Gwen Stefani is three months pregnant with her second child.
The former No Doubt singer - who already has a 20-month-old son with husband Gavin Rossdale - was thrilled when the pregnancy was confirmed at Los Angeles Cedars Sinai hospital.
A source said: "They found out at the hospital and couldn't wait to share the news with everyone. They're absolutely ecstatic, it's something they both really want."
Last October, Gwen, 38, revealed she was keen to have more children but wanted to wait until she had finished her tour, which is now over.
She said: "Obviously I'm in a race to have another one but I don't want to do it while I'm on tour."

The 'Fantastic Four' actress - who is pregnant with her first child by fiancé Cash Warren - is so terrified about an infant sucking on her nipples she is having trouble sleeping.
She said: "One dream I had was to do with breastfeeding, which is the only thing I'm paranoid about. I'm more paranoid about that than about giving birth!"
The 26-year-old actress also revealed she has been feeling a lot more emotionally unstable since falling pregnant.
She said: "I've been feeling a lot more emotions. Anything could make me incredibly angry or break down crying. That's not something I'm used to."
Jessica - who is famous for her toned figure - is determined to keep her baby weight to a minimum.
She told US TV show 'Extra': "I try to eat as healthily as possible and exercise. As long as I don't gain too much weight too fast - I think that's the key."

Hayden Christensen says filming sex scenes with Jessica Alba was "terrifying".
The actor, who stars alongside Jessica in new film 'Awake', says shooting the intimate scenes with the stunning actress was scarier than starring in 'Star Wars'.
He said: "I was just so nervous. Really nervous! Running around with a lightsaber is really pretend, but when you are put in a situation where the scene you are doing becomes so real, it is terrifying.
Hayden was right to be worried as Jessica recently revealed she loves having sex.
The actress, who is pregnant with her and fiancé Cash Warren's first baby, said: "I don't think a girl's a sl*t if she enjoys sex. I could have had a one-night stand. I feel like a lot of women try to make it into more, so they don't feel so bad about just wanting to have sex. I don't really have a problem with just wanting sex. Never have."
Jessica stars as Hayden's wife in 'Awake', which tells the story of a man who is conscious but paralysed during surgery.

Denise Richards will fight Charlie Sheen in court after he refused to let their daughters appear in her reality TV show.
The 'Wild Things' actress reportedly wants authorities to revoke her ex-husband's right to prevent Sam, three, and two-year-old Lola from joining her in the fly-on-the-wall show, after he branded her "greedy, vain and exploitative".
A source said: "The whole idea of this show starring Denise and the kids goes totally against everything Charlie believes in. He feels it is exploitative of the children for their mother's own vanity and greed."
The warring exes, who divorced in 2006 following a four-year marriage, will fight the issue out in court later this week, it is claimed.
Sheen and Richards are already involved in a bitter custody dispute over Sam and Lola.
Richards is requesting a custody evaluation, no overnight visits for Sheen, and the authority to make decisions regarding the care of the children.
Court documents previously revealed Richards has accused Sheen of "inappropriately" touching their daughters - claims he vehemently denies.

Britney Spears has dumped her photographer lover and filed a restraining order against him.
The troubled star ended her relationship with Adnan Ghalib - who she is believed to have started dating last December - after discovering he was cashing in on his romance with her by tipping off his agency FinalPixx with photo opportunities.
Britney got her revenge on Adnan by inviting two photographers from a rival agency into her Los Angeles home at 2am on Sunday (20.01.08), saying: "Come with me, let's have fun."
As the group arrived at the property the singer's manager Sam Lufti brandished a paper he claimed was a restraining order banning Adnan, 35, from making money from photographs of the star.
Britney spent four hours with the two paparazzi drinking champagne and dancing to music including singer Amy Winehouse's album 'Back to Black' and one of her own LPs.
One photographer named Roberto said: "We had fun. Britney was funny, very relaxed, dancing a little bit and she carried her little dog all the time. Sam was telling us to not worry about Adnan because they have filed a restraining order against him."
Adnan - who was pictured buying pregnancy tests with Britney last week - insist is unaware of any restraining order because he has been at a family funeral.

Funnyman Eddie Murphy and his bride have SPLIT - days after it was revealed their Pacific isle wedding three weeks ago was not legal anyway.
The Shrek star and stunning film producer Tracey Edmonds, 40, last night confessed their whirlwind “marriage” had hit the buffers following their return to Los Angeles.
The break-up comes after the couple tied the knot in a romantic New Year’s Day beach ceremony on a private island off Bora Bora in the South Pacific.
It later emerged they should have lived there a month to make the marriage legal under Polynesian law.
Last night a “proper” ceremony they had been planning in Tinseltown was called off - leaving multi-millionaire Murphy, 46, in paradise over his lucky escape.
Lawyers for the star - father of SPICE GIRL MEL B’s baby daughter ANGEL IRIS - were double-checking with officials on the island that he was still single.
Only couples who wed in the town hall in front of the mayor are exempt from the 30-day residency rule.
Murphy, who split from his first wife in 2006 after 13 years, refused to comment.

TROUBLED BRITNEY SPEARS wrote a suicide note saying: Perhaps it would be better if I was dead, The Sun can reveal.
The heart-rending letter laid bare the 26-year-old singer’s dark feelings of loneliness - and despair at being unable to live up to family and fans’ expectations.
A friend found it just before Britney’s meltdown earlier this month.
Doctors and friends of the tormented star believe she needs urgent help - because she is suffering fits of terror and is mentally ill.
The chart-topping singer has had mental health problems for years, sources close to her family revealed.
Her conditions, which include manic depression and possible multiple personality disorder, seem to be worsening.
And American TV doctor PHIL MCGRAW, who has seen her recently, said she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention.
He added: I am very concerned for her.
The medics and family sources spoke out as it was revealed 26-year-old Britney penned a suicide note telling of her loneliness and fear of not living up to the expectations of fans and relatives.
Pals say the Toxic star is like a child, constantly needing care, approval and support from them.
And she is terrified of losing her children SEAN PRESTON, two, and JAYDEN JAMES, one, in her custody battle with her estranged husband KEVIN FEDERLINE.
It is understood the case’s judge believes her erratic behaviour is being caused by psychological problems rather than an addiction to prescription drugs.
And she stands little chance of winning unless she accepts treatment for mental illness.
Another bizarre incident came to light yesterday when it was revealed Britney shocked assistants in a Los Angeles clothes shop by emerging from a changing room NAKED.
She spent 45 minutes in the room with her British lover, paparazzo ADNAN GHALIB.
An assistant said they made weird noises like they were having sex. And Britney swore at staff when she left.

One employee said: She was slurring and spitting. Her face was covered with cold sores and acne, and her scalp was patchy.
Britney’s suicide note was found in her bathroom just before her meltdown earlier this month, in which she was rushed to a psychiatric ward after refusing to hand her sons to Federline’s security guards.
It was discovered by a friend who thought it a cry for help.
A source close to the singer said: The letter was very sad. Britney talked about her loneliness, how unfair life is and not being able to trust people.
She wrote about how she will never be what people want her to be. She said, ‘Perhaps it would be better if I was dead’.
The source said the friend, who has been trying to persuade Britney to seek medical help, confronted her with the note. But she laughed it off and said: Everybody thinks about death.
Britney missed a vital court hearing over her kids on Monday. The source said: People think she doesn’t care but she loves them more than anything.
The truth is she’s terrified of losing them and can’t face going to court. She doesn’t want to answer questions about her mental health and lifestyle.
Britney’s manic depression is also known as bipolar disorder. The source said: She also has something much more serious she doesn’t want to talk about.
She may have multiple personality disorder. And she had post-natal depression after both births.
The source added: Sometimes she misses drugs she takes for her problems. Sometimes she takes too many. Combined with her drinking, it makes her difficult to control.

Daniel Craig is delighted with his gorgeous new Bond girls.
And the Cheshire-born star admitted that, despite praise for Casino Royale, playing James Bond still makes him nervous.
He revealed: “I’m no less nervous than I was.
“I don’t know if I’ll ever feel comfortable with it. You can’t say there’s less pressure when you make a $200 million Ddollar movie. The pressure is plain to see.
“We’ve got to make it as good as if not better than the last one and that’s all that matters.”
But Daniel refused to be drawn on the name of the new movie, currently dubbed Bond 22.
When asked if it would be the rumoured title The Lady Expects Too Much, he laughed and joked: “That’s quite good. I’ll write that one down!”

Jerry O'Connell and wife Rebecca Romijn will soon be joining the ranks of expectant parents -- if their plans come to fruition.
"Rebecca and I are both looking forward to the next logical step," reveals the star of ABC's "Carpoolers" sitcom, who married the "Ugly Betty" actress last July. "We're married, and we both want children soon. That's our plan, and we can't wait."
The writers' strike that's crippling Hollywood could help them realize their plans, he says. Both have been idle from their series shooting for months now. And that, says O'Connell, "is giving us some very cherished time together. When we're working, we see each other very little. But with the strike … Well, I'm spending a lot of time gardening, she's become a chronic antique eBayer and does work with cross-stitching. But mostly we spend time together."
O'Connell's series has started an eight-week airing of segments that were shot prior to the beginning of the strike, but like the rest of the industry, he has no idea when he'll be able to return to the cameras.

Pamela Anderson has described her split from Rick Salomon as "a big fat juicy can of worms".
The former 'Baywatch' star - who filed for divorce on December 14 after just three months of marriage - has spoken about their break-up for the first time.
Pammie said: "I wish him the best. It's a can of worms. Big, fat juicy worms, but worms."
She also shot down rumours she is pregnant with Rick's baby, telling US TV network E!: "No more kids. No more kids."
In December, the 40-year-old actress had claimed she and Rick were trying to work things out, but it was recently revealed her lawyer had filed a proof of service summons in Los Angeles Superior Court on December 28.
Pammie - who has two sons, Brandon, 11, and nine-year-old Dylan with first husband Tommy Lee - fell for friend Rick after he offered to waive her poker debts to him in return for sex.
They married in a quickie ceremony in Las Vegas, in the one-hour break between Pammie's performances as Hans Klok's assistant in his magic show.
Rick famously starred in and released the Paris Hilton sex tape 'One Night in Paris'.
He was previously married to actresses Shannen Doherty and Elizabeth Daily, while Pammie has been wed twice before to rockers Kid Rock and Tommy. She filed for divorce from Rock after just four months of marriage.

Last night, I watched Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie make out.
Not in my dreams, mind you. I was at the live VH1 telecast of the Critics' Choice Awards from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.
The Dolce & Gabbana-garbed Jolie and her scruffy-sexy man were two of the last celebs to arrive, so they had to wait in the back for a commercial break to take their seats.
Comment on this Article
So, what did they do while they waited? The lovebirds whispered, laughed and then, like a couple of teenagers, they began kissing. And I'm not talking about a sweet peck or two between parents. It was a full-on make-out session!
As one of my coworkers said, "I want to make out with them!"
Another thing you didn't see? Whenever the cameras stopped rolling for a commercial break, the pair's table was immediately swarmed with boldfaced names and Industry executives.
Queen Latifah was one of the first to stop by to say hello. I also caught Hairspray director Adam Shankman chatting them up, as did Julian Schnabel, director of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

Britney Spears abandoned her car on Sunset Boulevard during rush hour last night (07.01.08).
The troubled pop star, who got a flat tyre while she was driving along the busy Los Angeles street, continued to drive for two miles without her lights on and even passed a petrol station before she pulled over and deserted the vehicle.
Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Mike Lopez said: "Britney Spears' car was impounded because it was blocking the roadway."
Britney now faces a $104 towing fee, plus $32 for every day it remains in the towing yard.
If the 'Toxic' star doesn't collect the vehicle within 30 days, it will be put up for auction.
The incident has sparked further fears for the singer's mental health.
The 'Gimme More' singer was taken to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following a three-hour stand-off with police which began at 8pm on Thursday (03.01.08) after she refused to return her sons, two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James, to ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Britney Spears reportedly took over 100 pills during a massive 36-hour drugs binge last week, before being hospitalised.
The troubled singer is said to have washed down the huge amount of drugs with a 'Purple Monster' cocktail - a mixture of vodka, anti-flu syrup and an energy drink, before being taken to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday night (03.01.08), according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.
Her hospital dash came after she refused to give her sons, two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James, back to ex-husband Kevin Federline after a custodial visit.
A source close to the singer said: "She ended up taking 20 Clenbuterol diet pills, 18 herbal speed tablets, 18 Piriton anti-histamine tablets, 12 Vicodin painkillers, 10 sleeping pills and eight antacid reflux tablets.
"She also drank one bottle of Pepto-Bismol, two bottles of NyQuil and two bottles of OxyContin painkiller, and took a further 10 anti-hangover drugs and six Ritalin tablets which are usually used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)."
Meanwhile, Britney's estranged father Jamie reportedly "broke down in tears" when he visited his 25-year-old daughter in hospital.
A source told People magazine: "Jamie was incredibly upset. He broke down in tears. When he realised the situation, it just literally broke him down.

Victoria Beckham has reportedly banned a host of her celebrity enemies from attending the Spice Girls' reunion concerts.
The 33-year-old singer - who is currently in the middle of the band's 17-date residency at London's O2 arena which is part of their world tour - has compiled a list of stars who are not welcome at the venue as they have upset her in the past.
The list includes British glamour model Jordan and her husband Peter Andre, Lily Allen, Sophie Ellis Bextor, TV star Denise Van Outen and camp comedian Graham Norton.
A source said: "Victoria has taken some stick over the years from certain celebrities. She doesn't want to be doing her stuff on stage, and then see famous faces in the audience taking the p**s.
"So, quite understandably, Victoria has banned a number of well-known names from the show."
Jordan and Peter publicly slated Victoria and her soccer star husband David on national TV, while Sophie - who beat Victoria in a chart battle in 2000 - slammed the Spice Girls' latest video 'Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)'.
Lily criticised Victoria's figure, saying she was too thin to be a good role model, while Graham and Denise have also ridiculed her appearance.

Pop star Nick Lachey and his girlfriend have turned a problem neighbour into a new best friend after saving his life.
The singer and Vanessa Minnillo jumped into action when an elderly man living in their New York apartment block collapsed as he stepped out of an elevator.
Minnillo called the emergency services while her boyfriend grabbed the old guy's keys and dashed to get his angina medicine.
The couple then stayed with the man until paramedics arrived and took him to hospital, according to the National Enquirer.
Ironically, the man was among those who opposed Lachey and Minnillo's move into the condo, citing worries about the paparazzi who follow the couple everywhere.
