Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is changing her name. The 38-year-old mommy-to-be, who was born Stacy Ann Ferguson, has filed to legally change her name to Fergie Duhamel. The singer’s lawyer verified the name change telling USA Today the reason for the change, “Fergie wishes conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.”
The name change is also officially changing her last name to Duhmel after four years of marriage to actor Josh Duhamel.
Before the official name change is complete, Fergie must publish the change in local newspapers for four weeks before her Aug. 16 court date.
Fergie and Josh are expecting their first child this fall.
