“(You’re) Having My Baby” is a song written and recorded by Canadian singer Paul Anka. Recorded as a duet with female vocalist Odia Coates, the song became Anka’s first No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 15 years, since 1959’s “Lonely Boy.” The song became a Gold record.
Anka, whose last chart-topping hit had been 1959’s “Lonely Boy”, had written the song for his wife and their four daughters while appearing at Lake Tahoe. The song was going to be a solo effort by Anka, but the unknown Coates, whom Anka had met while on tour, was at the studio during the recording session. Upon suggestion by United Artists recording executive Bob Skaff, the song became a duet. Released in late June 1974, “(You’re) Having My Baby” climbed the chart and became Anka’s third No. 1 song. A follow-up single “One Man Woman/One Woman Man”, reached the Top 10 in early 1975.
