Hilary Duff is expecting a boy.

The singer recently made the announcement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

I haven't told anyone yet. I just found out . . . It's a boy! I had a feeling it was a boy the whole time, the 24-year-old told DeGeneres.

Duff is expecting her first child with her husband of just over one year, NHL player Mike Comrie.

On the show, which airs Monday, the former Disney star also revealed how she told Comrie that she was expecting.

When it actually happened he was in the shower. I think sometimes when you imagine it you think you're going to do it in some cute way . . . I just ran in and he was in the shower and I just held up the test and I was like, oh my God . . . he was soaking wet. We were just like a mess and started crying. It was really exciting, she said.

The couple first announced their pregnancy in August, after celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary.

Duff is currently on a book tour in support of her second novel, Devoted, the follow up to her 2010 New York Times bestseller, Elixir.

Duff is due in the spring. Scroll down for photos of the expectant star.
