Fergie has been a dreamer all her life, so it’s not too surprising that a dream inspired the Black Eyed Peas singer to name her firstborn son Axl Jack. The new mom appeared on the Wednesday, Nov. 20, episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she opened up about raising a baby boy with Josh Duhamel and shared her post-baby workout secrets.
The spouses of nearly five years had already agreed on the middle name Jack as a tribute to Fergie’s late uncle, who passed away in 2012. They chose Axl over Morrison and Marley because “it was very strong,” the singer said, “it’s an old Scandinavian name.”
Shortly after Axl arrived into the world on Aug. 29, Fergie knew they had made the right choice.
