In a statement to E! News Tuesday, the Thompsons added, “We are overjoyed to announce that after 16 years of marriage, we are finally starting a family and are excited beyond words to begin this new journey into parenthood!”

The pair, who have won the Vocal Duo of the Year awards twice, have created hits like “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” and “If I Didn’t Have You.”

Keifer told People, “We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things and we just really felt there was something missing. We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”

Shawna said the baby won’t slow down their touring. She exclaimed, “We’re going to need to turn one of the bunks into a crib and we’ll need a changing area. It’s going to be interesting.”

Keifer, 39, added, “We’re really, really excited. We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things, and we just really felt there was something missing. We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”

As for pregnancy cravings Shawna said, “I was eating strange combinations.”

“That’s before she even knew,” shared Keifer. “She was like, ‘I think I might need to go get a test because I just ate a cantaloupe followed by a pickle chaser.’ ”

Asked about baby names Keifer joked about the possibilities.

“I already got Thompson in there, so I said Shawna gets to pick the name as long as it’s not something crazy like these people in Hollywood do all the time. No Moonbeam for us!. Though I think it would be fun … maybe we should go with something really weird and random. Toothpaste Thompson. That is a great alliteration — and we are songwriters, you know.”

Louis Tomlinson

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson spoke out for the first time on becoming a dad. After the band’s performance for Good Morning America on Tuesday (August 4), Michael Strahan threw the 23-year-old the question.

He said, “Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?”

“Thank you,” Tomlinson replied. “Obviously it’s a very exciting time. So thank you.”

The singer is expecting his first child with Briana Jungwirth, 23. They are not in a relationship.

US Weekly reports a source previously said, “Louis didn’t expect this, but he’s excited for it now. He’s become very close friends with Briana this year and now they are looking forward to being parents. He’s definitely going to be there and be a great dad for their baby.”

Tomlinson’s mom Johannah Deakin met Jungwirth in July. The pregnant stylist lives with her mother and stepfather in Calabasas.

The British boy band singer will surely get lots of parenting advice from his mom. Deakin has seven children in all, including one-year-old twins.
