We knew our favorite Black Eyed Pea, Fergie, and hubby Josh Duhamel were expecting a baby boy, and we even knew how they were preparing for the birth. And now that the little guy is here, we know his name!
Turns out -- and we can't say we're surprised -- the singer gave her babe a rocker name: Axl Jack. Axl is a Hebrew name that means "Father is peace."
Of course, we can't say Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was any name inspiration, but we do know that the Duhamels aren't the only fans of the name: Will Ferrell named his son Axel in 2010, and so did Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney.
Unlike some celebs (hello, Jessica Simpson), Fergie and Josh kept their chosen name a secret until their boy's arrival.
“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,” Duhamel told People magazine back in July. “We’re not even telling [Fergie's] mom because we don’t want to hear anything about it. That way you don’t feel like you’re second-guessing yourself. It’s between us -- it’s a sacred thing.”
He added: “[The name is] kind of traditional, kind of not. My wife is a little rock and roll, so she’s a little bit more daring in that department than I am. We decided on a name that we both really love and I think will suit this child.”
We think it's a perfect choice for the pair. Congrats -- and welcome baby Axl!
