The good news of the pregnancy came after a rough start to 2009 for the couple, as Slim checked into rehab for alcoholism last March. The 39-year-old ball announced that they were expecting in July, and told UK's Daily Mail in October "I'm pretty darn happy at the moment. Norm and I tried for a baby for years with no joy, but we both quit drinking this year and, lo and behold, it worked! So I'm feeling quite blessed."
In music news, Slim paired with David Byrne on the upcoming Imelda Marcos-inspired concept album, 'Here Lies Love.' The 22-song, two-disc set will feature guest vocals by Tori Amos, Sharon Jones, Florence Welch, St. Vincent, Cyndi Lauper, Santigold, Steve Earle, Natalie Merchant and more. The record due out next month. Congrats, Fatboy.
