Josh and Fergie Duhamel Introduce Son Axl Jack

09/17/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

We’ve waited almost three weeks to get a single glimpse of Josh Duhamel and Fergie‘s newborn baby boy Axl Jack — and now we get two at once!

The actor, 40, and the Black Eyed Peas frontwoman, 38, each posted separate photos of their son to Facebook on Tuesday. And an adorable little bundle of joy he is.

“Axl Jack Duhamel Day 1 #paparazziyoucanleaveourhousenow,” Duhamel captioned the sweet snapshot of his son swaddled in his hospital blanket.

“Not only is he a gorgeous baby, I also love the hashtag!” a fan named Shelly wrote, to which Duhamel replied, “Thanks!”

Proud mama Fergie posted her own picture of her sleeping sweetie — who seems to have passed his first test with flying colors! “Axl Jack Duhamel. Day 2 of life. Hearing test complete. All systems go,” she writes.

Baby boy was born on Aug. 29 and weighed in at 7 lbs., 10 oz.

As recently as Monday, the proud parents were still happily guarding their infant’s privacy. Asked on Twitter when they might release a photo, Duhamel replied: “Right now we just want him all to ourselves.”

Shocking! Fergie is using the hospital blankets!!! Most celebrities use their own stuff. The baby is cute 🙂

Lynne on

Adorable baby, but I can hear his classmates now, they’re going to be calling him “Applejacks” after the cereal. parents may want to stick to calling him Axl and not Axl Jack.

T. on

13 ppl who hit the angry face button are probably the paparazzi who didn’t get a shot of the baby & have nothing to take back to their bosses. =P

Re the spelling of Axl…They named him after Axl Rose, so that is the correct spelling.

Mel J- Did they ever actually confirm that? Or is that just a rumor? I’m honestly not trying to nitpick, just curious.

taradawes on

What an adorable little baby. I am curious (as I have no children of my own- yet) is a hearing test usually done that early on?

Anonymous on

They have not said he is named after him, but it is assumed based on all of her comments about Guns ‘N Roses and Axl Rose. When you combine the spelling and her love for him and the band….it’s hard to deny that is who he is named after 🙂 Even Slash thinks, “it’s really cool.”

Taradawes, yes. They do it in the hospital before you leave.

Too cute God Bless him…Congrats
