Mom-to-be and singer/designer/producer Fergie has filed offiicial documents in Los Angeles to officially change her legal birth name, Stacy Ann Ferguson, to her stage name Fergie Duhamel, TMZ.com reports.
Ferguson married hunky actor Josh Duhamel in 2009. The couple are expecting their first child this year.
Duhamel said recently told US Weekly that he and his wife, lead singer for the multi-platinum award winning group Black Eyed Peas, are more than ready for baby to get here.
“I feel like we’re ready for it,” the Transformers and Safe Haven star said. “I actually look forward to that.”
Fergie earlier gushed about how her Safe Haven star husband of four years has been giving her the extra good treatment, confiding that the baby has been a long time in the making.
“He’s been amazing,” Fergie told US Weekly at the LOGO New Now Next awards back in April. “He’s so nice and wonderful and he sings and talks to my belly all the time. He’s very complimentary. I’m very lucky that he is really good to me.”
She also revealed that even though the couple has been married for just four years, this little bundle of joy has been a long time in the making. “He’s going to be an amazing father,” Fergie said of Duhamel. “He’s just got natural parenting instincts and he wanted to knock me up from our first date! He is ready!”
The couple announced back in February on Twitter that they are expecting but have elected to not reveal the baby’s gender, which is probably known by now. Fergie is in her third trimester.
