The `I Gotta Feeling` hitmakers have eased their busy schedules in recent months, and singer Fergie is pleased because it has meant she has been able to spend more time with her husband, actor Josh Duhamel.
She said: "We`re taking a break-getting more of that personal time, but, you know, Josh and I have gotten to spend a lot more time together this year than other years, which is great."
The 36-year-old singer - who married Josh in 2009 after five years of dating - also admitted the couple are keen to have a baby.
Asked if they are planning to start a family, she told website Hollyscoop: "Oh yeah, of course. Not right this second. Not pregnant, for the record. But, yeah."
While Fergie is enjoying spending time with Josh, her bandmate will.i.am is using his break to work even harder and is planning to release a solo album - but is refusing to give the rest of the group a preview.
Fergie added: "I believe Will is coming out with a solo album, I`ve heard it, it`s called `Black Einstein`, and it`s amazing. I`ve been waiting for him to come out with this for so long, because I want it. He won`t give it to me. I want it for the gym. He`s so amazing. Such a genius lyricist and I`m really excited for his project."
