Fergie‘s baby bump continues to be the toast of the town.
Just two weeks after her star-studded bash inside the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, the Black Eyed Peas singer celebrated the impending birth of her baby boy with a second shower.
Friends and family gathered over the weekend to fete Fergie at an intimate affair she shared with her cousin, Bridgette Hardonk, who is also expecting a boy. Guests feasted on fresh salads – with croutons spelling out the first initials of the moms-to-be – and chocolate melting cakes at the blue-themed bash.
“How cute is this? At @BHardonk & my family #babyshower,” Fergie tweeted, sharing a snap of a mini cake adorned with a photo of the pair.

Even Fergie’s Black Eyed Peas bandmates Will.i.am and Apl.de.ap were on hand to celebrate the guest of honor.

Fergie, 38, is expecting a baby boy this fall with husband Josh Duhamel, 40, whose last name she legally adopted as her own earlier this summer. The child will be the first for the couple, who wed in 2009.

Bring on the blue.
Dad-to-be Josh Duhamel revealed in funny fashion that he and wife Fergie will be welcoming a boy in late August/early September.
The Transformers actor, 40, confirmed the sex of his soon-to-be firstborn during a taping of LIVE with Kelly and Michael, which will air Wednesday.
During a segment called Du or Don’t, Part II: Baby Edition, Ripa holds up two onesies – one pink, one blue – and asks him to choose between them. The actor played coy at first, and whipped the audience into a frenzy before snatching the blue onesie and holding it up in triumph.
The reveal comes just days after the expectant singer officially changed her name to Fergie Duhamel, ensuring that the new family will all have the same last name. Togetherness is important to the couple, Duhamel explains.
“I can’t imagine having a kid and then not being able to be there – that would just drive me crazy. My head would be at home with mom and baby,” the actor said recently. “We want to work it out so that we can be together; whether I am working, they can come with [me] or if she is working I can go with them. I can’t see myself ever wanting to be away from my wife and kid.”

We’ve waited almost three weeks to get a single glimpse of Josh Duhamel and Fergie‘s newborn baby boy Axl Jack – and now we get two at once!
The actor, 40, and the Black Eyed Peas frontwoman, 38, each posted separate photos of their son to Facebook on Tuesday. And an adorable little bundle of joy he is.
“Axl Jack Duhamel Day 1 #paparazziyoucanleaveourhousenow,” Duhamel captioned the sweet snapshot of his son swaddled in his hospital blanket.
“Not only is he a gorgeous baby, I also love the hashtag!” a fan named Shelly wrote, to which Duhamel replied, “Thanks!”
Proud mama Fergie posted her own picture of her sleeping sweetie – who seems to have passed his first test with flying colors! “Axl Jack Duhamel. Day 2 of life. Hearing test complete. All systems go,” she writes.
Baby boy was born on Aug. 29 and weighed in at 7 lbs., 10 oz.
As recently as Monday, the proud parents were still happily guarding their infant’s privacy. Asked on Twitter when they might release a photo, Duhamel replied: “Right now we just want him all to ourselves.”
