Stacy Ann Ferguson, aka Fergie, is officially changing her name!
The Black Eyed Peas singer filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court to legally change her first name to her stage name, while also taking on husband Josh Duhamel’s last name.
According to her lawyer…
She wanted to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.”
The hearing will take place on August 16. But apparently, to officially become Fergie Duhamel, she must print a notice in the local newspaper for four ongoing weeks.
Why now though?
The two have been married for four and a half years, and are finally expecting their first child. In a recent interview with ET Canada, Duhamel shared:
“I plan on taking off as much time as I can just before and as much time as possible after,” he added about his busy career. “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.” Concluding, “I feel like we’re ready for it, I actually look forward to that.”
Timing really is everything!
