Fergie wants to take a break from showbiz, to focus on domestic life.
The Black Eyed Peas star is glad the band - who she appears in with will.i.am, Taboo and Apl.de.ap - are taking a short hiatus so she can focus on her family life with husband Josh Duhamel and decorate her home.
She said: "I need more balance in my life. I want to be home more, not in hotel rooms recovering from jet-lag and the chaos of touring. I need a break from that. I want to be in my house, decorating!"
The 36-year-old singer admits a baby may be on the cards for her and Josh and is "looking forward" to their future together.
She added: "I'm a huge family person - huge - and yes, Josh and I want to have children, but I am not pregnant!
"But we definitely talk about it. That'll be a whole other chapter of our lives and it's going to be so much fun. We're looking forward to it."
Despite being well known for her sexy image, often wearing skin-tight clothes while performing with the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie admits she feels sexiest when she is make-up free.
She told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "When do I feel sexiest? When I get out of the shower and I feel fresh and my hair is clean.
"I feel very sexy then because I'm so clean and pure and beautiful. I don't feel so sexy when I've just taken an 11-hour flight and I get home and I'm jet lagged!"
