After weeks of speculation, it has been confirmed that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are expecting their first child together.

Sources close to the couple exclusively confirmed the news to multiple media outlets, following initial tabloid reports last month.

Star Magazine first broke the story about Fox’s pregnancy in late March via a source close to the couple. “They just found out and are incredibly excited,” a source told Star at the time. “Megan has become a great step-mom, and Brian knows she’ll be wonderful with the baby.”

In the April 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, when asked about having children, the “Transformers” actress said, “I want at least two, probably three kids. I’ve always been maternal.”

She told the Hollywood Reporter in another recent interview, “I’ve always wanted kids. It’s just about the timing being right. I have a number in my mind of what amount of money I want in the bank so that I can protect that child’s future. And really protect it, so that kid never struggles. Once I feel safe with that then I’ll have them.”

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have yet to respond to any requests for comment on account of them wanting to keep the news a secret, though it might be a little too late for all this secrecy now.

If true, this will be Megan’s first child, and the second child for Brian, as he has a 10 year old son with his ex partner Vanessa Marcil.
