Fergie & Josh Duhamel Welcome First Child: Axl Jack

Josh Duhamel and Fergie at the "Scenic Route" Premiere

Congratulations to Fergie and Josh Duhamel who welcomed a baby boy via C-section on Thursday (August 29)! Their rep confirms to People that the new arrival is named Axl Jack Duhamel. Axl weighed in at 7 lbs., 10 oz.

The couple wanted to keep the baby’s name a secret. The actor has said, “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.”

Just two days ago Fergie shared a photo of their dachshund Zoe and dog trainer Cesar Milan.

The singer wrote via Instagram, “@joshduhamel & I getting our doggie daughter ready for her new brother with @cesarsway.”

    • Mickey

      Just hope the kid wille be able to pronounce its own name by the time it goes to school… :-)

  • klutzy_girl

    I love the name (it reminds me of Axl from The Middle, a show I love), but it sounds a lot like Apple Jacks.

    Congratulations to them! It felt like she was pregnant forever.

  • jane

    Very rock ‘n roll name. I rather like it. Congrats!

  • arabella

    axl is a stupid name.also is pronounce like axel.

  • AvaElizabeth

    axl. another stupid name. not as stupid as north or cricket or ace spades *uhhhh* knute. But stupid enough.

    Jack Duhamel would sound much better.

  • Bink

    It’ a car theme–axl and jack! Axl flows nicely with Duhamel. Congrats to the new parents!

  • Zxcvbnmasdfghjklqwertyuiop

    I kinda like the name but if you say it fast it sounds like Apple Jack!

  • arabella

    what a dumb way to spell the name axel. its like naming your daughter lily,but spell it liy.

    • Meghan

      Yeah, because Lily and Liy sound exactly the same. I wish I could roll my eyes in the comments.

  • wendy

    Her child, her delivery choice, her life. Give it a rest!

    • Anonymous

      No one has mentioned her delivery choice except you.

  • Tiffany

    I like the name….btw Arabella that Lily reference doesn’t quite makes sense.

  • Anon

    go ahead and try to picture that name on a college diploma if you were looking for a laugh.

  • DanSy

    omg love the name! congrats!!!

  • Ali_spain

    And the “name trend” continues getting worst and worst :SSS

    Starting to like North West! i am surprised too haha

    • Mattia

      Don’t understand why people call this name bad or ridiculous? Axl is a variation of common and old name Axel. So Axl Jack is a real common name with nothing so unusual or weird in it unlike some celebrity names.

  • Judi

    Her husband is so damn hot

  • musiclover

    I really like the name Axl…..I think it goes well with Duhamel.

  • Me

    I have an accent so if I say Axl Jack fast, it doesn’t sound like apple jack but more like a**hole Jack. :-)
