Fergie, born Stacy Ann Ferguson, has officially changed her name to Fergie Duhamel.
The Grammy winner’s representative confirmed that a judge gave the sign off for the name change Friday, August 13, 2013. Fergie requested the change name exactly a month before (July 13) and was asked to publish a notice about her new name in a local newspaper for four consecutive weeks.
The former Stacy Ann Ferguson has completely dropped her first names and opted to merge her stage name and her married name. According to TMZ, Fergie wanted the name change several reasons, mostly because no one calls her Stacy anymore. In the documents, Fergie said she wants the change in her name to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.”
The 38-year-old Black Eyed Peas singer has been married to 40-year-old actor Josh Duhamel since 2010. She is currently pregnant with their first child, a boy due to arrive in late August/early September.
