Fergie has undergone a Fergalicious name change.

The singer, born Stacy Ann Ferguson, has officially changed her name. She's now Fergie Duhamel.

The Grammy winner's representative confirmed the name change Friday.

According to TMZ, she wanted the name change for a number of reasons, one of them being that no one calls her Stacy.

Fergie is one-fourth of the Black Eyed Peas. She released her solo debut, "The Dutchess," in 2006. It launched five big hits, including "Fergalicious" and "Big Girls Don't Cry."

The 38-year-old singer is married to 40-year-old actor Josh Duhamel. She is pregnant with their first child, a boy reportedly due to arrive in late August/early September.
