Mom-to-be Fergie changes her name

Before she'll be called "Mom," pregnant singer Fergie is undergoing another name change.

Although the Black Eyed Peas star has been known professionally as Fergie, fans know that she was born Stacy Ann Ferguson. It's a moniker that dates all the way back to her "Kids Incorporated" and Wild Orchid days, when she was a member of that '90s girl group.

Now, however, Fergie wants to make her stage name permanent. According to reports, the 38-year-old has filed documents in a Los Angeles County courthouse to legally be known as Fergie Duhamel.

That way, she'll also share the last name of her husband, actor Josh Duhamel.

The couple, who've been married for four years, are expecting their first child this year.

    I dunno – a "Fergie Duhamel" sounds like something you'd ask for at a Texas brothel that involves having a prairie dog forced into places a that prairie dog was never intended to go.

    Why in hell she decided to adopt the name of Duchess of York Sarah (Ferguson) is beyond me. I really don't get it. Such an ugly name anyway. But she wants to be a copy cat and a bimbo, that is her right.

      Fergie is the nickname for Ferguson, her real last name! She didn't take it from the former royal. I knew a woman who's last name was Ferguson, and everyone who knew her called her Fergie.

    I like it. They've been together for a while now. And in a more traditional way, she is taking his last name, a sign of their affection for one another. She's known as Fergie, so changing the first name, officially makes sense too. These are role models to those who take relationships seriously.

    And next month she will change her name to T-Ferg.
    Then Fergditty.
    Then PhineasNFerg.
    Then the artist formerly known as Ferg.
    Then Ringo for some unknown reason.

    Her child will just call her mommy-licious.

      Wait, she is married to that loser from that cancelled show, about that place that people only go to because states are cracking down on online gambling. Yeah, way to pick a winner and put him in your name, Fergs.

    I still don't know much about her, but, I liked the character he played on AMC. What's wrong w/the name Stacy Duhamel, anyways? She can still use Fergie for her stage name.

      I think they are a really cute couple. Probably, everyone calls her Fergie, so I guess I can see the change. Nobody's business but hers, I guess. At least she's not changing it to Moon Rocket, or something crazy like that.

    Good for her to add her husband's surname as her own. That is the common sense thing to do instead of all the posturing some people do with the hyphens and so forth. How much easier for handling their affairs and for their child and hopefully children. Good for you Fergie!!!

      Why? She chose to give up her name and that's great for her, but what's wrong with a woman keeping her name? I did when I was married and never had a problem, and I'm far from the only woman who doesn't want to subject herself to the hassle of changing all of her identification because of marriage.

      Is hyphenating a name that difficult??? Its not that different than saying your full name. Life is easy enough for most people.
