Charlie Simpson has gone buggy shopping.

The 29-year-old musician announced last week he and his wife Anna are expecting their first child together.

The former Busted frontman is wasting no time in getting ready for the tot's arrival, and has started shopping for essential items for new parents.

Charlie posted on Twitter: ''Went to look at some @Bugaboo buggies today for the little one! :) #rocknrolllifestyle (sic)''

The singer/songwriter revealed his happy news while performing an acoustic show at London's Islington Assembly Hall, dedicating the title track from his latest album 'Long Road Home' to Anna and telling the audience ''I'm going to be a dad''.

Previously speaking about his desire to become a parent, Charlie said: ''Me and my wife are getting pretty close to wanting a baby, we're probably a little bit away but it's definitely something I'm keen to do. I love kids and I'm looking forward to beginning that chapter of my life. I think I'll probably end up writing songs about them ... The hardest part of my job is being away from my wife. When we have a family then it will become even harder having to be away from the kids ... I think I'll lessen my touring when I have a baby ... I don't think I could miss key points in my kids' life when they're growing up. I love touring and it means the world to me but I think I'd have to organise it in a way where I'm not missing out on my kids upbringing.''
