The Pulse of Radio reports that NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor and his wife, singer Mariqueen Maandig, are expecting their first child, according to an interview with Maandig in Women's Wear Daily. Maandig did not say when the baby was due, although according to OC Weekly she posted on her private Facebook page that she's scheduled to give birth on October 10. She and Reznor have acknowledged that plans for a full-length CD release from the couple's collaborative project, HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS, have been put on hold until early next year due to her pregnancy.
The 45-year-old Reznor and 29-year-old Maandig met under what she calls "unusual circumstances" and were engaged in spring 2009, marrying that October.
This will be the first offspring for both musicians.
HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS, which also features longtime NINE INCH NAILS collaborator Atticus Ross, released its self-titled debut digital EP last month. A physical version is slated to arrive this month.
Reznor and Ross are also composing the score for the upcoming movie "The Social Network", director David Fincher's exploration of the controversial creation of Facebook.
