New baby photo alert! We caught sight of Fergie and Josh Duhamel's newborn baby, Axl. Josh posted the photo on Facebook, and we'd like to thank him for sharing. Will you please look at this sweet little pea? He's swaddled in a classic hospital receiving blanket with a little striped hat and his lips are fixed in a pucker. If you lean into your screen and sniff, you can even catch that new baby smell, I swear.
Josh added a caption: "Axl Jack Duhamel Day 1 Life is good #paparazziyoucanleaveourhousenow." Daww, a picture from August 30, the day after Axl was born. And -- oh my, are the paparazzi really camping out at the Duhamel house? Guys! Leave the new family alone.
Hopefully throwing the public this adorable photo will be enough to give Josh, Fergie, and Axl a little privacy for a while. I kind of love this about social media, the way it allows celebs to connect more directly with fans on their own terms. Sure, there's a lot of backfires, but when it comes to baby photos, you almost can't go wrong. That is a photo everyone wants to see.
One fan responded to Axl's puckered lips, "He wants a kiss" and Josh replied, "He gets plenty, believe me!" I'm sure he does. We hope Josh posts more photos of Axl, but just this one is a big treat. Josh posted a teaser photo of himself holding his godson a couple weeks ago. Tricky! I'm glad they let us see the real son-of-Fergie today. I love those newborn photos -- such a tiny window of time, so important to capture those first few hours.
Do you have photos of your babies during their first couple of days?
