Black-eyed peas singer Fergie says children and work don’t mix

Pop-star Fergie says she’ll put career on hold rather than juggle work and motherhood

The Black Eyed Peas lead singer has admitted that when she decides to start a family, she’ll be bowing out of the musical arena. Speaking to OK! Magazine, Fergie said she would feel “too guilty” to continue her career as a mum.


“There’s no room in my schedule to have a child. Even if I wanted to get pregnant, there’s no way I could perform on stage and be pregnant, I would feel too guilty,” the 35-year-old said.

Fergie, who married Josh Duhamel last year, has hinted that she wants to try for a baby later this year when her tour finishes.

“It’s kind of interesting now with the media, the way it’s getting to watch all these women have careers…but also have babies. Once I have children, the kids come first,” the star explained.
