Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins is still kicking himself for letting it slip back in January that bandleader Dave Grohl and his wife are expecting a baby.

"I thought everybody knew that Dave was having a kid," Hawkins tells us. "I like had this interview with MTV News or something and I was like, 'Oh yeah, we're takin' a break 'cause Dave's having a kid.'” Next thing you know, my wife's like, 'Hey, s***head! It's on the Internet now that you just dropped the bomb that Dave's having a kid.'"

Even though the cat was out of the bag, Hawkins insists that Grohl didn't want to hang him for the slip.

"So I see Dave in Europe while we're touring and he's like, 'Thanks for telling everybody in the world that I'm having a baby.' And I was like, 'Well, I just thought everybody f***in' knew, dude.' He was fine with it. He wasn't a d*** about it. He was like, 'Dude, don't worry about it.'"

Nonetheless, Hawkins now realizes why it was a big deal. "He's a private person... and I don't blame him."

When I was in my late teens a friend of mine, an elite athlete, gave me the most profound yet simple advice that changed the way I would view myself forever. He told me "You yourself have to think you're great because no one else is going to tell you that you are."
