Musician Fergie and actor Josh Duhamel split last year and like in the wake of any breakup, Fergie has thrown herself into her work. She recently released a new album that includes visuals and is a judge on the new singing competition The Four.
When asked about how she was adjusting to her new reality, the former Black Eyed Peas singer spoke about how she’s doing the best she can to be a present figure in her son, Axl’s life, and have a fruitful and busy career. She is currently single but won’t close off the idea of possibly giving her son a sibling one day and has said “never say never” when it comes to having more children.
Fergie is upfront about what her New Year’s resolution is this year; it’s to get more time for herself. She’s looking forward to just chilling and catching up on sleep. Because she and Duhamel are dedicated to co-parenting, when she doesn’t have her son, she’s working incessantly and feels like she really doesn’t get enough time to rest. She admits that sometimes she’s just “a tired mom.”
There tends to be a misconception about celebrities and the help they get with raising and watching their children. Sure many can afford, and do have help, but that doesn’t mean some celebrity moms don’t do most of the middle of the night waking. Some celebrities, like Mila Kunis, is very vocal about being hands on.
Operation make-time-for-herself is on the top of Fergie’s to-do list. This makes sense after a whirlwind couple of years. Her and Duhamel were married for 8 years before they decided to call their marriage quits and Fergie has been very open about how saddened she is they couldn’t make it work. She’s gone on record when talking about her marriage, saying that she didn’t expect her life to end up this way.
Rumors had been swirling for a couple of years that Duhamel was controlling and even had a wandering eye but those things haven’t been confirmed. Either way, Fergie is dedicated to making this year one of her very best.
