Singer Fergie and her actor husband Josh Duhamel have taken the unexpected decision to end their relationship after 8 years of marriage. The former couple announced that they are going their separate ways through a joint statement. In it, the stars are saying that they separated earlier this year, but wanted to wait a bit before making everything public. According to the statement, the couple ended things amicably and will still love and respect each other and their respective families.
End of an 8-year marriage
Fergie and Josh have a 4-year old son named Axl. Over the years, both entertainers have been opened about the beautiful and not-so-beautiful parts of being a parent. On Ellen DeGeneres’ show, Duhamel confessed that even if he had a child at 40 when he was more mature, he still doesn’t have any idea what he’s doing. He admitted that Fergie is the one dealing with most of the responsibilities and the one who has more patience.
Recently, nobody has seen Fergie (42) and Duhamel (44) together. However, back in January, when they celebrated their 8th year wedding anniversary, they looked very happy together and like a united family. They also posted multiple messages and photos on their social media accounts around that time. This is why many people have been shocked about this news, as nobody had expected it to happen. Back in May, Duhamel also talked about married life and said that he and Fergie always have a good time together and that they love their son enormously.
It’s interesting that according to a source, people who knew them closely were not surprised about this split. It seems like their differences played the biggest role in this split. They managed to overcome them in all those years, but they finally reached a limit. Also, because of work, they weren’t spending too much time together anymore.
