As the son of Fergie and Josh Duhamel, Axl Jack Duhamel has garnered attention since his birth. Despite the public interest, his parents have made conscious efforts to keep his life private. Here’s an in-depth look at everything you should know about Axl.

Axl’s Early Life


Axl Jack Duhamel was born on August 29, 2013. This puts him on the brink of celebrating his 10th birthday today. He was born at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Fergie underwent a C-section while bringing Axl into the world. She used the same V.I.P. suit that Kim Kardashian used after giving birth to North West.

Both Fergie and Josh have shared in the past that they wanted a name that wasn’t common. The name ‘Axl’ was inspired by a dream about Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose, which Fergie had while pregnant:

“I had this dream, and I was in the audience at this festival. It was outdoors, and it was all grimy, and nobody knew who I was. On stage singing was Jim Morrison, and then came Bob Marley and then Axl Rose. I was in heaven in this dream, and I was dancing and just getting into the music. It was really beautiful … and I woke Josh [Duhamel] up, and I said, ‘Honey, honey, honey, he kicked me. He finally kicked me.'”

Axl has a diverse heritage, including English, Irish, Mexican, Scottish, French-Canadian, Austrian, German, and Norwegian roots.

Growing Up Under the Spotlight


Being the son of two famous personalities, paparazzi often clicked Axl’s photos during family outings. However, Fergie and Josh have made efforts to keep Axl’s life as private and normal as possible.

Still, Axl has been seen participating in various kids’ activities and sports over the years with his family. He enjoys Halloween, has been seen wearing matching costumes with Fergie, and attends sports events with his father, Josh.

The pair have tried to shield Axl from unnecessary media attention, so he has made a few public appearances.

Fergie and Josh’s Split and Its Impact On Axl


Fergie and Josh Duhamel announced their separation in 2017 after 8 years of marriage. They have agreed to not pay child support and share 50-50 custody.

The duo voiced their commitment to co-parenting Axl, ensuring that he grows up in a supportive and loving environment. Fergie and Josh’s social media posts since then have shown both parents sharing quality time with Axl.

As of 2023, specific details about Axl’s schooling, hobbies, or any professional aspirations remain undisclosed. This secrecy is likely an intentional move by his parents to ensure he enjoys a regular childhood away from the spotlight.
