Fergie, whose birth name is Stacy Ann Ferguson, has filed legal papers requesting to officially change her name to Fergie Duhamel.
This comes roughly 4-and-a-half years after marrying Josh Duhamel.
In the documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Fergie’s lawyer says she wants to swap Stacy for Fergie in order to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.”
That makes sense.
In order for the name change to take place, Fergie must publish a notice in a local newspaper for four consecutive weeks (just like Ron Artest was required to do in order to become Metta World Peace).
Fergie and Josh are expecting a child later this year, but have not confirmed a due date.
