Stacy Ann Ferguson is dead — long live Fergie Duhamel!

The 38-year-old pop star, best known as Fergie, requested a name change in July had it approved by a judge today, August 16, as TMZ reports.

Her new moniker reflects both her stage name and her marriage to Safe Haven actor Josh Duhamel.

In case you were wondering what she's up to these days, the "Glamorous" singer is reportedly working on a seventh album with her group, The Black Eyed Peas.

Oh yeah, and she's pregnant with a son, her first child with Josh.

As is tradition for anyone changing his or her name in the state of California, she ran a notice about the identity switch in a local newspaper for four weeks.

We're just glad Fergie didn't follow the example of two of her fellow Peas, will.i.am and aple.de.ap, and change her name to fe.rg.ie.
