Actor Josh Duhamel is growing his family! The Shotgun Wedding star and his wife Audra Mari, a model, announced they are expecting their first baby together. “Baby Duhamel coming soon.”
In a joint Instagram post, the couple shared an image of Audra holding two sonogram photos beside a white flower and a beige book. They did not share any details about their little one, including when they are expected to arrive. While this new baby will be Audra’s first, it is Josh’s second. Josh shares a 10-year-old son named Axl with singer Fergie. The Save Haven star was married to the Black Eyed Peas singer for 8 years before splitting up in September 2017. The “Big Girls Don’t Cry” singer wished her ex congratulations in the couple’s post writing, “I am truly happy for you guys🥰🥰 Axl can’t wait to be a big brother.”
Josh and Audra first began dating in 2019, two years after his split with Fergie. In January 2022, Josh asked the former Miss World America to marry him on her 28th birthday. The couple tied the knot a few months later in September 2022 in Fargo, North Dakota. Following their engagement, a source close to the couple revealed they were already thinking about growing their family, sharing that Audra would “love to have kids with Josh.”
After their wedding, another source spoke about Josh’s desire to have more kids. “[Josh] wants more kids and always has so they probably will have kids sooner than later. He’s not shy about it, but he’s felt this way since Axl was very young. He loves being a father.”
Congratulations to Josh and Audra on the news of their first baby together!
