Fergie and Josh Duhamel welcomed their first child into the world on Thursday, E! News has learned.

The couple announced that they've named their son Axl Jack Duhamel and that the little one weighed in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces.

The Black Eyed Peas singer gave birth to her bundle of joy in Los Angeles after checking into Cedars-Sinai Hospital for a prescheduled C-section earlier in the day.

This marks a watershed moment for the 38-year-old and her hunky hubby.

Duhamel explained to E! News in March that starting a family together was "something we've wanted for a very long time."

"We're both just over the moon about it," he added.

The doting dad took his new role very seriously throughout each trimester and confessed that he had been serenading Fergie's baby bump for months.

"They say they'll recognize your voice when they come," he said. "It's very important to me that we raise this kid right."

"There's a connection that's established," he added. "I'll take anything I can get."

Fergie first spoke about Duhamel's singing to E! News at the Logo NewNowNext Awards earlier this year and said, "He wants to get the vibrations of his voice into the child."

The "Glamorous" singer added: "He speaks to my tummy, it's quite hilarious."

She also revealed her pregnancy cravings…and it wasn't exactly ice cream and pickles!

"Fruit has become a staple where is wasn't before. It's mangos, papayas, anything really juicy and sweet."

And if there's one person who has the fullest confidence in Duhamel as a father, it's none other than Fergie.

The pop star couldn't help but gush about her partner and his natural parenting instincts.

"He's been amazing," she said. "He so nice and wonderful. He sings and talks to my belly all the time. He's very complimentary. I'm very lucky that he's really good to me."

She even joked, "He wanted to knock me up on our first date!"

But all kidding aside, the new mama is readier than ever to start this next chapter with her leading man.

"He's going to be an amazing father," she said. "I'm so blessed. I'm on top of the world. Me and my baby are on top of the world."

Congratulations to the new family of three!
