Here are some articles about Nina Persson’s pregnancy.
The Cardigans recently moved out of their reheresal space and have put a lot of the tshirts they had in storage up for sale of UK EBAY.

A Camp came through Salt Lake City last year in June. I just found a video with some behind the scenes footage. As you can see, Kilby’s Court is tiny and it was a great gig to attend.
Our own Nina Persson is expecting her first child. Congratulations to Nina!
The Citizens Band Prepares For A Few New Additions
May 12, 2010 5:34 pm
Former Cardigans singer Nina Persson was in New York last night to celebrate her new, collaborative collection with the Swedish label Hope, and luckily, her new, collaborative collection was, too. (An earlier date for the party had to be postponed after Eyjafjallajökull stranded the clothes on the far side of the pond.) The capsule collection of fur-trimmed coats, mesh layering skirts, floral dresses, and, yes, a cardigan was Persson’s first stab at designing, but the soft-spoken Persson was just as concerned with another first: her first child, currently in attendance as well—in utero. The pregnancy may have kept her away from the free-flowing Champagne, but it didn’t keep her offstage. After sharing a few timely maternal anxieties—”I don’t want to be one of those blog moms,” she confided about the overly anxious, neurotic Internet set—Persson performed a few songs with her new band, A Camp. There to cheer her on were James Iha and her friend, sometime housemate, and fellow expectant mother Sarah Sophie Flicker, who also performs with Persson in the collective the Citizens Band. Flicker’s second baby, a boy, is due in the fall. Has the baby boom inspired a bout of creativity in the moms-to-be? Flicker and Persson were mum on the Citizens’ future, but fellow member Karen Elson—mom of two, and with her own album coming out later this month—let it slide today that the Band is in the very beginning stages of discussing an upcoming New York residency.
Cardigans lead singer Nina Persson might suggest trying to not get pregnant while creating your first fashion line. “It’s so typical that the launch happened right now. It was meant to have happened a few weeks ago, and I grew out of the clothes before we had the launch,” she said at the launch of her capsule collection with Swedish label HOPE at a party hosted by Project No. 8 (where the collection will be available exclusively, as well as at online retailer La Garçonne) at the Ace Hotel’s Liberty Hall. “This [dress] works. It’s pretty good maternity, and the only thing I can fit in still.” James Iha of Tinted Windows and the Smashing Pumpkins came by to wish the collection well, as did the Citizens Band, which played a set to close out the evening.
Persson performed a few songs herself, but spent most of the night showing off her collection of puff-sleeve dresses, mesh-trimmed skirts, and cardigans, naturally. Pregnancy wasn’t about to slow her down. “This is almost like playing a regular show: You get really excited, the adrenaline pumping, and it’s really tough to wind down,” she said. “Today is one of the hardest days to not drink, actually. The good thing is that you’re pretty high on other weird hormones, so you get pretty excited anyway.”
