LOS ANGELES, April 29 (UPI) -- Gwen Stefani will temporarily replace Christina Aguilera as a judge on The Voice.

Rumors that the former No Doubt singer would take over for Aguilera began earlier in April. Aguilera seemed to confirm the news herself on Tuesday when she tweeted a welcome to Stefani on Twitter.

Aguilera plans to take a break from The Voice in order to give birth and care for her daughter. She and fiancé Matthew Rutler got engaged in February, and announced their pregnancy one week later.

"She's friends with the other coaches but has a strong opinion, which is also important," host Carson Daly recently said of Stefani. "They can't all just be too lovey out there. So I think she'd be a solid choice."
