The 40-year-old star will be co-hosting the Hollywood segment of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday evening, E! News reports. In an interview with Will Marfuggi, the part-Mexicana reveals that this is her 10th year celebrating NYE on-screen. “It’s the best,” she said. “I mean, I feel a part of this holiday, you know? And Axl growing up is going to know ‘mommy’ associated with New Year’s.”

As for her 2-year-old son, the star explains that he’ll probably “at home sleeping” by the time the ball drops. She says she’s not sure midnight will ever be an acceptable bedtime for her adorable son. “Not yet!” she says.

The singer also spilled on what hubby Josh Duhamel will be up to while she’s attending to her hosting duties. When asked if he’ll be waiting backstage to get his midnight kiss, Fergie joked, “He will be probably waiting, off-stage, just waiting for the second I get off that stage, because he can’t stand it…”
