American actor and ex-husband of singer Fergie Josh Duhamel became a father for the second time. The wife of the "Transformers" star Audra Marie gave birth to a son. The couple spoke about the joyful event on Instagram*, publishing the first photo of the child.
Josh and Audra shared a photo of their newborn's feet with followers and revealed his name and date of birth. "Shepherd Laurence Duhamel. 01/11/2024,” the couple wrote.
For 29-year-old Marie, the son became the first child, while Duhamel is raising 10-year-old Axel, born in his marriage to Fergie. According to the actor, the new big brother had the best reaction when he found out that Audra was expecting a child.
"He's like, 'Wait, now I'll... You're still going to love me, right?'" Josh told Parade last fall. "I was like, 'Of course I'll still love you.' And he: “I’ll still be your firstborn, right?” I was like: “Yes, you are still the firstborn!”.
Audra Marie and 50-year-old Josh Duhamel got married in 2022. The actor was previously married to ex-Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie. The couple split in 2017, ending a 13-year relationship and eight-year marriage.
Earlier, the singer, who was not seen in a relationship after her divorce from the actor, congratulated her ex-husband and his new wife on their new addition. "I'm truly happy for you guys, Axel can't wait to be a big brother."
