Singer Fergie and her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, welcomed a baby boy on Thursday in Los Angeles.

Axl Jack weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces and was delivered by C-section, the singer’s representative told CNN.

The baby is the first child for the couple who married in 2009.

Actor Duhamel, 40, is best known for his role in the Transformer film franchise, and Fergie, 38, is the lead singer for the pop group, The Black Eyed Peas.

Duhamel told Reuters at a recent movie premiere that he couldn’t wait to be a dad.

“It’s amazing to see how that thing starts out as a little embryo and grows into this baby that’s going to be here any day,” he said. “It’s pretty terrifying but I don’t know if I’ve ever been more excited for anything.”
