Josh Duhamel can now add a new role to his resume: that of proud papa to his first child, son Axl Jack Duhamel, with wife Fergie.

Fergie gave birth to their baby boy on August 29, and the little guy arrived weighing in at 7 lbs., 10 oz., a rep for the couple tells People.

While on the media circuit promoting his role in the psychological thriller "Scenic Route," Duhamel has fielded plenty of questions about becoming a father -- most recently during his appearance on "The Tonight Show" earlier this week.

"You know, I gotta tell you, I'm a little bit nervous," the 40-year-old actorconfessed to Jay Leno. "I thought that I was going to be good. I thought that I was ready for this, and I'm a little bit terrified. I'm excited and terrified, because I am responsible for this little thing. Forever. So, I just got that. So, if this interview sucks, you know why."

Fergie, for one, has no doubt Duhamel will make a great dad. "He's going to be an amazing father," the Black Eyed Peas singer gushed to Us Weekly back in April. "He's just got natural parenting instincts and he wanted to knock me up from our first date!"
