Fergie Officially Changes Her Name
Stacy Ann Ferguson is no more, the name that is. The front woman for Black Eyed Peas was granted Friday (August 16) to officially change her name to Fergie Duhamel, TMZ reports. The singer, who is married to actor Josh Duhamel, requested the change last month. According to legal documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, she wanted to "conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years."
Taking similar steps to Knicks baller named Ron Artest two years ago, now Metta World Peace, the "Fergalicious" singer is required to publish a notice in the local newspaper for four weeks.
She tied the knot to "Transformers" star Josh Duhamel in January 2009 and await the birth of their son, their first child together. Fergie recently held a third baby shower in celebration, taking a "selfie" on Instagram celebrating with close family and friends in a restaurant at West Hollywood, Calif.
"There is a lot of anticipation going on at the Duhamel household right now," Josh told Us magazine. "It's pretty exciting."--Andrew Asare
