Fergie says pregnancy rumors motivated her to workout harder

Singer Fergie was on the Regis & Kelly show this morning and they brought up the pregnancy rumors that dogged the engaged singer late last month when she was photographed out with a billowing dress. I really thought she was pregnant because it had been a few weeks since we’d seen her out, and she did have what looked like a small bump at the Grammy Awards in early February.

On the pregnancy rumors
Kelly told Fergie “You’re in such phenomenal shape. When they say that you’re pregnant, do you go ‘What does that mean?’”

Fergie said “It actually motivated me to start working out more. It just means I need to get back to the gym basically. It’s just kind of my little reminder now. ‘Oh I’m pregnant again? Time to cut out the lasagna’”

On first meeting Josh
In the first part of the interview, Fergie explained how she read an interview before she met her now-fiance, Josh Duhamel, in which he revealed that he had a crush on her. She said her friends told her to get in touch with him, but said that she’s old fashioned and thought the guy should make the first move. Then she learned that she was going to make an appearance on Josh’s show “Las Vegas” with the Black Eyed Peas, and she said she flirted with him and they went from there.

Fergie said that to break the ice she said to him “I heard you had a dream about me. Was it a good dream?” and he said ‘Yes’”

Fergie talked about her new purse line with Kipling, and said the designs are based on West Coast styles around when she was in high school, like bandanna and tie dye patterns.

Overall she comes across as good natured and laid back, and although she’s not my favorite person she kind of grows on you the more interviews you watch with her. She handled that whole pregnancy rumor very well.

Here’s the first part of the interview. She talks about how she first talked with Josh Duhamel after reading he had a crush on her.

Here’s the second part where she talks about the pregnancy rumors:

And Fergie performing “Finally,” the latest single off her first solo album “The Dutchess.” The CD has been out since September, 2006, but it will be re-released as a Deluxe Edition on May 27 with five new tracks.

Fergie is shown in the header at “Idol Gives Back” on 4/6/08

    She’s had so much plastic surgery that the top half of her face doesn’t move. Scary. If you see pre-surgery photos of her, she looks entirely different. She does seem like a nice person, however.

  2. Granger says:

    Wow. I think it’s very sad that a woman would feel she needs to work out more because a stupid tabloid said she was pregnant. Couple that attitude with all the plastic surgery, and it seems to me Fergie is a very insecure person.

    She is re-releasing her album? Can’t she just put out a new one? I’m not buying something I already have for 5 new songs…CHEESY!

    Tell us something we don’t know. ‘Baby bump’ is just a new way of telling women they’re getting ‘fat’, and it’s interestingly limited to women by virtue of it being linked to reproduction.

    So now everytime a women becomes what someone in the media thinks is ‘bigger’ they can just call the subject pregnant.

    Yet another veiled way of scrutinising women’s bodies, without getting called on it because it can be well-intentioned.

    Well you know what they say about the road the hell, right?

    I’m still waiting for this kind of scrutiny to be levelled at male bodies. Oh, wait, right I forget men aren’t routinely expected to wear mid-drift baring, clingy clothes. They can just wear a suit, or a baggy top or jacket. And even if they look like they’re eating for two and have the belly it’s not because they’re pregnant.

    Maybe all actresses should start wearing those billowy tops on principle, just to make a point.

    ps – I don’t think it’s insecurity that prompts it. Just imagine that you’ve gained a pound or to because you’ve just come back from a holiday and suddenly members of the press start writing speculative stories. Then paps start asking and trailing you; then reporters ask in interviews, and even if you demure or deny, it snowballs as a story; suddenly your mom and family are ringing you up in the middle of the night to ask if the stories are true.

    Given all of that? I don’t doubt she just started working out to stop the stupid rumours.

    Sometimes these things take on a life of their own. You don’t necessarily have to be insecure to want to head them off. Just tired of hearing about it every five minutes.

  8. MonicaBee says:

    I guess I don’t know why nobody likes her. I always have, and I even think she’s pretty – big gasp!

  9. Anonymous says:

    yeah too bad when she first met and flirted with josh, he was engaged to another woman.

  10. FF says:

    You mean it’s too bad Josh was an adult and able to make his own decisions?

    Just located your internet site on yahoo and i think it is a shame that you just aren’t ranked higher given that this can be a marvelous publish. To alter this I determined to avoid wasting your site to my RSS reader and i will try and point out you in a single of my posts mainly because you genuinely deserv additional readers when publishing content material of this top quality.
