It’s been big week for celebrity baby news, and now Fergie and actor husband Josh Duhamel have welcomed their baby boy. He was born yesterday at a healthy 7 pounds, 10 ounces, says Us Weekly. And he’s got quite a special name: Axl Jack.
Fergie said she chose the name for her first child because she’s always been a huge fan of Guns ‘N Roses, fronted by Axl Rose. She counts getting to record with Slash as one of the best moments in her life (though we imagine the birth of her son is at least a top contender). Fergie’s not alone with her name choice. Axl or Axel is a boy’s name that’s been climbing in popularity with parents, perhaps ones who are also big fans of Guns ‘N Roses. Congrats to the happy couple and welcome, Axl Jack!
