Fergie and Josh Duhamel seem to have lived separate lives before they announced their split last week. Fergie confessed ‘Honestly, it was just getting a little weird for us with all the romantic questions’ so the two of them decided to come clean about their relationship.
‘We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird,’ Fergie whose real name is Stacy Ferguson told People magazine.
‘There’s no perfect time, so we just decided to do it. Then, Fergie also talked about co-parenting their 4-year-old son Axl.
‘We just wanted to get adjusted in private. [And Axl’s school has helped as] we have a co-op so Josh and I would walk there several times before the school season,’ she explained.
‘I get to learn from the teachers and see how he reacts with a group of friends that he knows. And I get to help out and serve them snacks and clean the dishes. We have fun, we get down and dirty and read the stories with our costumes. You get down in the sand and get dirty; I love it. I love that part of it all.’
Fergie and Josh ended their relationship after 13 years together and eight years of marriage.
‘With absolute love and respect we have decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,’ they announced in a joint statement which brought sadness to all of their fans.
‘To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family,’ they concluded.
They got engaged back in December 2017 and then got married in 2009. The real reason for their split is still unknown. Their split even shocked Fergie’s mother.
