It’s a Boy for Fergie and Josh Duhamel!
Okay, but seriously — is there something in the Hollywood water we should know about? Less than 24 hours after Jamie-Lynn Sigler welcomed a son, there’s another set of new parents in town! Moments ago, news broke that Fergie and her husband, Josh Duhamel, welcomed a baby boy into the world! Early reports suggested the Fergster gave birth via c-section, but no word yet on whether that’s the case.
Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…. (HIS NAME!)
Axl Jack Duhamel weighed in at 7 lbs., 10 oz., a rep for the couple confirmed to People. In a few candid interviews before his son’s arrival, the new daddy shared that the couple had already picked out their son’s name — but were keeping mum on the details. “Some people may not like it, some people may think it’s really cool, but we don’t really care — that’s why we’re not telling anybody,” doting daddy Duhamel said.
What do we think of his name? Baby boy is definitely in the running to be a rocker, just like his namesake, Axl Rose. We can’t think of any other celebu-tots that’ll share his moniker — other than the famed Guns N’ Roses frontman — so they get points for picking a different, out-of-the-box name. And while the proud new parents admitted that their choice wasn’t for everyone, it’s certainly for them. Who knows, maybe they plan to call him Jack instead?
