Fergie & Josh Duhamel Welcome Their First Child.
If you chose 'c' well done. If you chose 'a' go and give yourself a good chidin' and read up on your celebrity gossip. Yes indeed, her Fergaliciousness and hunky Dorian Gray actor Duhamel have named their first child, born yesterday (29th August), Axl Jack, who was delivered by caesarean.

The pair teamed up to bring 'Sweet Child of Mine' to 2011 Super Bowl halftime fans and Fergie's powerful vocals featured on Slash's solo album. To commemorate the birth of their first child and the Fergie's love for the 80s rockers, an Axl Jack was born into the world.
Within the realm of celebrity, Axl Jack does have an mischievous tyke edge to it but that may not save him once he gets to school age. He'll have to cultivate a reputation and personality that is fitting of his badass namesake, GN'R frontman Axl Rose.
