Fergie, the rapper-actress, is overjoyed for her ex-husband Josh Duhamel, who is about to become a father because his wife Audra Mari is expecting. Fergie responded to Mari’s pregnancy by congratulating the couple and her ex-husband.
The ‘Glamourous’ singer called it quits with the ‘Transformers’ actor in 2017, though has been on good terms with him, sending well-wishes to him and, who is expecting a baby with his wife Audra Mari. “I am truly happy for you guys,” Fergie, who shares 10-year-old son Axl with Josh, commented on Instagram Sept. 11 below the couple’s pregnancy announcement. “Axl can’t wait to be a big brother,” ‘People’ magazine reported.
Fergie’s celebratory message should come as no surprise, considering she showed her support for the duo when they got engaged last year, and it further confirms what Fergie and Josh shared in their breakup announcement back in September 2017. “With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” they said in a joint statement at the time. “We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”
Duhamel and Mari started dating in 2019 and are planning to marry in North Dakota in September 2022. A source informed ‘People’ ahead of his wedding that the ‘Shotgun Wedding’ star “wants more kids and always has, so they probably will have kids sooner rather than later.”
Earlier this year, the ‘Las Vegas’ alum–who will marry Audra in September 2022–shared tips for former partners navigating a co-parenting arrangement.
“I would say to anybody who’s going through it, do whatever you can to keep it simple, because the only ones you’re hurting are the kids,” Josh told E! News in March.
