Even though their romance is over now, it doesn’t mean there isn’t any love between exes Josh Duhamel and Fergie. In fact, they are known for being very friendly exes and often support and praise each other.
It’s been nine months since they announced their divorce and now, they are co-parenting their 4-year-old son, Axl successfully. What is their secret?
‘We just love our kid and want the best for him. Fergie and I get along great. We have a lot of love, and there’s no reason to not do the best we can to raise our kid. He’s number one,’ Josh told ET while at the NBA Awards in Los Angeles today.
The little boy is turning 5 years old in August but he seems to be already very busy; be it taking hip-hop classes, playing sports or any other activity and that is what his father wants for him.
‘I’m just trying to do the best I can – I’m just trying to keep him busy. Those 4-and-a-half/5-year-olds are busy! You need to find stuff to do, so that’s really what we’re doing. I’m not pushing anything on him – he’ll find what he loves, and we’ll support it.’
Speaking of his acting career and how the child shows support for his projects, Duhamel revealed that his upcoming film Think Like a Dog will most likely be something Axl will absolutely love.
He admitted that while he is much more careful about the roles he accepts now that he is a parent he does not let that part of his life completely dictate what roles he takes on.
‘Think Like a Dog definitely is something my son will like. The movie I directed last summer is something he won’t be able to see until he’s at least 18. So I don’t let that dictate my choices, but I am conscious of what I do because I know he’s going to see it, so that is something that I definitely take into account,’ Duhamel explained.
