Fergie and Josh Duhamel welcomed their baby boy this morning. Hope she’s feeling maternal by now. What is with all the damn babies being born this month (and this whole summer?) Do people get super bored and super randy in the winter season?
They named their kid…get ready for this…Axl. Yes, after Axl Rose. AXL. Um.
Fergie is doing great after giving birth via C-section and is, according to TMZ, “recuperating in style, staying in one of the V.I.P. suites famously used by celebrities like Kim Kardashian.”
I know she’s a Guns ‘N Roses fan, but this is a bit much. Of course it’s her kid and she can name it whatever the hell she wants; not saying she can’t. It’s practically required of celebs to give their kids unusual names.
What are your thoughts on the name?

Fergie’s “real name” isn’t actually Fergie. Until now! Ms. Stacy Ann Ferguson is now Fergie Duhamel (Pocono Record). She’s one of the few big stars I can think of who has changed their last name to their spouses’ (Josh Duhamel) professionally as well as personally. She didn’t even go halfsies on it, like Courtney Cox-Arquette. Speaking of a Friend, Aniston was reportedly thinking of changing her last name once she marries Justin Theroux. I can’t ever see that happening.
Fergie (official!) and Mr. Duhamel are expecting their first child.
DID YOU CHANGE YOUR NAME WHEN YOU GOT MARRIED?

Our good pal Fergie Ferg has been married to Josh Duhamel for a few years now, but she’s finally decided – perhaps because she’s about to pop out his kid – to change her name legally. And not just her last name, either. No, she actually WANTS to be called Fergie for the rest of her life. Like, officially. Her actual name is Stacy Ann Ferguson, but if the court approves her paperwork (they will, duh), then she’s moving on up… to Fergie Duhamel.
Ferg — born Stacy Ann Ferguson — has filed legal papers requesting to officially change her name to Fergie Duhamel… roughly 4-and-a-half years after marrying Josh Duhamel.
The reason for wanting to change her last name is obvious … but in the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Ferg’s lawyer says she wants to swap Stacy for Fergie in order to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.”
In other words … no one’s called her “Stacy” in YEARS.
In order for the court to grant her request, Ferg … or Stacy (for now) … must publish a notice in a local newspaper for four consecutive weeks (just like Ron Artest was required to do in order to become Metta World Peace).
She’ll most likely get her wish if she completes her task by August 16 — when a hearing is scheduled for the matter.

Bill Clinton had fun this weekend. Last time we saw Dear Bill he was hanging out with a much younger actress. Former President Clinton posed here on stage with I Dream of Jeannie‘s Barbara Eden at the Life Ball in Vienna. Ms. Eden is 78, 78! Good for her. She looks rad. The Life Ball is a huge charity event held in Europe that raises funds for HIV and AIDS awareness. None of this explains why there was an I Dream of Jeannie theme. Oh but wait, another treat! Pregnant Fergie with Barbara Eden! Who else didn’t recognize Fergie AT ALL? I totally forgot she was pregnant.
If you’re curious to see more of what a 78 year-old woman looks like in a crop top, check out the photos. I know I was. I’m not kidding. You rarely see 78 year-old women’s bare midriffs and I was very curious.
Don’t thank me. Thank The Daily Mail.

Oh, Fergie Ferg. She’s having her first baby with husband and hottie (to some?) Josh Duhamel, and that’s great, right? You know, despite the fact that her immediate reaction to discovering her pregnancy was to note that “shit just got real“? Guys?
Alright, listen. Fergalicious admits that she’s not really all that maternal and even incubating her child in her womb hasn’t really kicked that in yet. I don’t think that’s necessarily an issue, and it’s bullshit women’s/parenting mags that like to make women feel like there’s ONE correct way to react to everything in life. If you’re not shitting yourself with delight over putting 86 yellow (neutral colour, natch) onesies on your Target baby registry, there’s something wrong with you. I mean, there isn’t, but that’s what they’d like you to believe.
From OMG! Yahoo:
“I’m still waiting for my maternal instincts to kick in, really. I’m sure a lot of new moms can really relate to that, so I’m hoping it’ll happen before it comes out,” she revealed.
Having kids is a mindblowing experience that’s hard to come to terms with the reality of, so why should she be going nuts already? If you are, cool, but there’s nothing wrong with NOT being that way. Sounds to me like she’s bricking it because she’s realising that her whole life as she knows it is going to be turned upside down and start revolving around a little wrinkly crying thing that takes all of your time, energy, attention and money. I’d probably feel pretty similar.
