"I only wish her the best, I always have," Judd told PEOPLE at the 11th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala in Beverly Hills on Monday. "She's always wanted to be a mother, and now she's going to be. I couldn't be any happier for her."
Judd, 38, added about Lopez's future child: "I can't wait to see him."
While Lopez remains mum on the topic of her bump as she tours, Judd appears in La Noir, a film that is part of the Hollywood Film Festival.
Lopez and Judd were married in 2001 and split the following year.
