Hey baby hey baby hey! The No Doubt family is growing.

Bassist Tony Kanal and his girlfriend Erin Lokitz have a baby on the way, the band confirms in a statement posted to their Web site.

The pair are “extremely happy to announce that they are expecting their first child early next year. The couple is overwhelmed with joy and excited to meet their new little one.”

“We’re feeding our baby a healthy diet of Bob Marley, The Clash, Prince and of course No Doubt,” Kanal, 40, adds underneath a photo of Lokitz’s pregnant belly sporting headphones.

So far, the band’s babies are a brood of boys: Gwen Stefani is mom to sons Zuma, 2, and Kingston, 4, Tom Dumont has sons Rio, 2, and Ace, 4, while Adrian Young is dad to son Mason, 8½.

Finally, everyone in No Doubt will be parents! And like momto3, I’m predicting that it will be a girl.

As an avid fan of No Doubt (only for about 15 yrs or so!) I am thrilled for Tony and his girlfriend. Congrats!

Hoping for a girl, too! 🙂

And if this baby IS a girl, then maybe she and the other No Doubt kids can be “No Doubt 2” someday (with her being the lead singer, just as Gwen is No Doubt’s lead singer, as well as the only female member of the group!). 🙂

Crystal: yeah he did! they were together quite a while, Don’t Speak was about him apparently.

Really pleased for them, congratulations! x

I’ve also been a ND fan for a very long time-since 1995-so 15 years now too + it’s really excited. Yes-Tony + Gwen Stefani were together for a long time in the late 80’s early 90’s. The whole “Tragic Kingdom” album is about their breakup/relationship.

I bet he will break the boy streak and have a little girl! I have a 4 year old boy and 4 month old baby girl and both genders are wonderful so its a blessing either way.

@ CelebBabyLover, that’s a great idea! I too think this baby will be a girl, and I’m excited for him and his girlfriend. Congratulations to Tony and Erin!! 🙂
