Fergie and husband Josh Duhamel had their first son, Axl Jack, in August. Since the summer, the singer has embraced motherhood and welcomed a more modest lifestyle.

Fergie told In Touch Weekly that being a mom has become her top priority, even over her fame. Though she loves spending time with her son and watching him grow, she said, "I’m still trying to find my footing and balance it all." Still, the Black–Eyed Peas star isn't putting too much pressure on herself. "I think all new moms can relate to that," she added.

However, Fergie has begun to notice how much a child affects her lifestyle -- notably her choice of footwear. "I'm wearing lower heels when I hold my son -- it’s definitely more comfortable," she said. Turns out her signature high heels weren't the most conducive to carrying around a baby. "Now I’m getting more into the flats section because I have a kid. So pregnancy and becoming a mom have really lowered my heels," she previously joked in an interview on ABC News Radio.

As for her son's future, Fergie is hoping that Axl will follow in her musical footsteps. "I'd care if he wants to be a singer or not," she told In Touch. "He's starting to try to talk to me and sing with me! I'll sit there and sing with him and he'll look at me and laugh and try to chime in!"

Fergie opens up about her experiences as a new mother and her hopes for having a baby girl in the current issue of In Touch Weekly.
