Fergie and her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, are celebrating the arrival of their first child, a baby boy they have named Axl Jack.

Fergie was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital yesterday (August 29th) for a pre-scheduled Caesarean section and gave birth to Axl later that day. He weighed in at 7lbs 10oz, the singer's representative confirmed to People.

Safe Haven star Duhamel previously revealed that they had chosen a "fairly traditional" name for their son.

The couple married in 2009 and announced Fergie's pregnancy in February.

The singer officially changed her name from Stacy Ann Ferguson to Fergie Duhamel this month.
