The married couple announced the news that Black Eyed Peas star Fergie is expecting their first baby on Twitter this week.

And now actor Josh has told omg! exclusively that he is overwhelmed by the news.

Speaking at the junket for his new movie 'Safe Haven' today Josh told us: "It's very exciting. Seeing that ultrasound is like unlike anything you've ever seen. Unless you've had one yourself. You're like 'wow it's mine'."

In the film - an adaptation from the book by Nicholas Sparks - the Hollywood star plays a doting father, so we asked him whether he reckoned it had prepared him for the role of being a dad.

Josh told us: "I think that I've always had an affinity for kids and there's something about me and kids that just click.

"I don't know if it's because I am a kid but it does prepare you whenever you're around them. I've got nieces and nephews and all my friends have kids.

"All that stuff is a learning experience for when it actually happens but I don't think you're ever truly prepared until it's your own."

Fergie accompanied the announcement with a Photoshopped snap of both her and her husband as babies (and a kitten).

The pair, who married back in January 2009, revealed they'd been pretty loved-up recently.

Josh told Ellen DeGeneres that February 14 was a special one for them, saying: "Valentine's Day was great. I bought her a nice gift. I bought her some earrings, took her to dinner and then made sweet, sweet love.

“It's Valentine's Day. You got to bring out your best stuff."
