Singer Fergie and husband, actor Josh Duhamel had their first child, son Axl, baptized this week in a private ceremony. The happy couple celebrated afterwards with an intimate party for family and friends.

"Baby Axl wore all white and seemed very calm about being baptized," an eyewitness told People. "He didn't cry at all. They seemed happy when they left the church. Axl had fallen asleep in his dad's arms and he looked adorable."

Fergie also dressed in all white, perhaps to coordinate with her son, while Duhamel wore a dark suit and red tie. The couple welcomed baby Axl on Aug. 29, 2013, after four years of marriage. The family has frequently attended church.

"My wife and I like to go to church if we're in town," Duhamel told Parade magazine in 2010. "On Sundays, I try to be as chill as I can, whether I'm watching golf or barbecuing. Now football season is starting, so that will pretty much cover my Sundays for a while."

Last month, Fergie revealed what inspired her son, Axl Jack's unique name.

"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'm dancing and just getting into the music," Fergie told Ellen DeGeneres.
It was during her dream that baby Jack decided to give his mom a kick to let her know he was "listening" along with her.

"It was the first time my son kicked me in the stomach and it was like he was feeling the music with me. It was really beautiful and I woke my husband Josh Duhamel up and I said, 'Honey, honey, honey, he kicked me. He finally kicked me.' I told the story and he was like, 'Morrison? Marley? No. Axl Jack. That's it!' It just had this ring to it. It was very strong."
