Fergie & Josh Duhamel welcome a baby boy

Fergie Duhamel has given birth to a baby boy.

A rep confirmed to Us Weekly that Black Eyed Peas singer and her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, welcomed Axl Jack Duhamel into the world via C-section at a Los Angeles hospital on Thursday morning, weighing 7lb 10oz (3.5kg).

The parents-to-be tried to keep baby’s sex a secret, but during an appearance on LIVE with Kelly and Michael, Duhamel hesitated before picking out a blue onesie. They did, however, manage to keep their son’s name under wraps.

“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,” Josh explained.

The couple have been married since 2009 and Fergie (38) announced that they were expecting via Twitter in February, saying, “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!!”

Josh (40) recently told ET Canada they were “ready” to be parents.

“I actually look forward to that,” he said. “I plan on taking [off] as much time as I can just before and as much time as possible after.”

“I can’t imagine having a kid and then not being able to be there. That would just drive me crazy. My head would be at home with mom and baby.”
