Gwen Stefani is having a baby boy.

The No Doubt singer is expecting a third child with husband Gavin Rossdale, and confirmed today it will be another boy.

"I was ready to hand over the crown. but I guess I am still queen of the house. #itsaboy #surroundedbyboys (sic)," Stefani captured an Instagram picture of her wearing a crown

Stefani has not said when the baby is due, but many expect it to be within the next few weeks, given the size of her baby bump.

The new arrival will be a younger brother to Kingston, seven, and Zuma, five.

The 44-year-old star has previously told how she loves motherhood and watching her children grow.

"It's super fun being a mum but it's not what you think it's going to be. And it's really gradual," Stefani said.

"At first, your life is totally the same. You have this cute little thing that you get to drive around everywhere and it's amazing. As they grow it really does start to change your life. Like, 'Oh, my God, they have school, they have to get through first grade, they have to learn to read.'

"When you have a family of your own it forces you to go into the adult world a little bit more."

In addition to his family with Stefani, Rossdale, 48, also has a daughter, Daisy Lowe, 24, from a previous relationship.
