White Stripes star Jack White is set to be a dad.
The singer is said to be "ridiculously happy" his wife, stunning model Karen Elson, is expecting their first child next spring.
Elson's publicist has confirmed the pregnancy to MTV News, ending months of baby rumours surrounding the smitten pair.
White and Elson were married in a secret ceremony in a Brazilian rainforest, earlier this year, after a three-month whirlwind romance.
White - who used to date Hollywood beauty Renee Zellweger - reportedly proposed to the British-born model in New York just before jetting to Brazil for the nuptials.
A source revealed at the time: "Everyone was really shocked about Jack's secret wedding. The only person who knew was Jack's bandmate Meg who was sworn to secrecy."
The pair, who met when Elson starred in the video for White Stripes single 'Blue Orchid', took a "mini" honeymoon during the singer's one day off from his world tour.
The source added: "Jack and Karen had a one day honeymoon before he had to get back to work."
