It seems that Fergie and Josh Duhamel were thinking about having another baby before they split. They called it quits after their eight-year marriage earlier this year, but she had admitted the break up came suddenly because they had been discussing extending their family before things went downhill.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper’s ‘Bizarre Life’ podcast, Fergie said confessed ‘It was a conversation about, ‘OK, do we start our next baby or start a new album? I knew I didn’t want to do them at the same time. It’s too much, you know?’
‘A child is something you have to focus on and make sure everything’s padded around them — not put all the other pressures on top of having a second child and doing an album, that’s just ludicrous to me. Josh was the one who said, ‘You know what, you should go back into the studio and make some music,’ she continued saying.
‘I remember crying a lot of times going into the studio because it was so hard to leave my kid. It was just this weird feeling I’ve never felt in my life before. I was like, ‘What is this mummy guilt? What the hell is this?’ So it was quite awful sometimes.’
After the split, Fergie had to push back the release date of her new album Double Dutchess because she was trying to deal with her emotions.’
She explained that ‘You’re a human being, we’re not robots. Emotions are going to come to the surface. I couldn’t tell everybody, ‘Oh hey, guess what, the album’s taking so long because I’m going through some stuff right now’.
Fergie continued her confession saying that ‘Some days are better than others and we’re both working hard right now on our careers. We’re both full-time and very ultra-loving parents. We’re trying our best to make sure Axl feels filled with love and that we are his parents.’
Even if Fergie and Josh are getting on well and co-parenting their little boy, the former couple have no plans to rekindle their romance at least not at this moment in time. Fergie concluded ‘So many things have happened in my life, I would never say never, but right now we are not thinking in that direction.’
