We’re delighted with this singer’s exciting baby news!

Singer Ashlee Simpson and husband Evan Ross must be looking forward to a joyful Christmas, as it's been revealed they are expecting their first child together.

Making the adjustment to parenthood won't be too much trouble for the pair, as Ashlee already has one son, 6-year-old Bronx, from her first marriage to Pete Wentz. 

She and Evan got married in August of this year in Greenwich, Connecticut, at the home of Evan's mother, Supremes singer Diana Ross.

Although the couple have yet to make a statement regarding the happy news, Evan recently spoke about his desire to start a big family with his new wife. When asked if he was interested in having kids, the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 star told Us Weekly, "I would love to… As many as possible."

It's been a big year for the couple. Having only met in the summer of 2013, Ashlee and Eric were together for just over six months before he popped the question at the beginning of 2014. Reflecting on the last twelve months in a recent interview, Eric said, "I got married, I have new music and I'm part of Hunger Games. It's been a great year."

Well, we reckon 2015 will be even more exciting for the expectant parents!
