It is commonplace to see children influenced by their parents to the point that they opt to tow their professional paths. In the case of Josh Duhamel though, it seemed not to be the case as he vied off in his own direction. His mother, Bonnie L. Kemper is a retired teacher and also a local businesswoman while his dad, Larry Duhamel is an advertising salesman; so, there was a line of public service and cooperate affairs in his home. He did start out in construction earlier on in life but later found himself settled in the entertainment industry.
Josh Duhamel was born on November 14, 1972, in Minot, North Dakota. After his parents’ divorce, Josh was raised by his mother alongside his sisters. He attended the Minot State University where he was a popular figure, thanks to his exploits as quarterback for the university’s football team.
Josh started off in entertainment as a model before making his acting debut as Leo du Pres on the ABC daytime soap opera All My Children. He has gone on to star in the Transformers: The Last Knight, New Year’s Eve, When in Rome, Life as We Know It, You’re Not You, Safe Haven, among others. He has also appeared in two video games, the most popular of which is Call of Duty: WWII.
Josh Duhamel’s Relationship With Fergie
Tall, sexy and charming; which lady won’t want that to be said about her man? Josh Duhamel is a guy who can be described by the aforementioned words and it’s no surprise he has had his way with the ladies. Most relationships that people have rarely lead to the altar, it appears what Josh Duhamel shared with Fergie sure caught his attention and led him straight in that direction.
Born Stacy Ann Ferguson but mostly referred to as Fergie; the celebrated pop singer made her name as a part of the pop group Black Eyed Peas. The group also had rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo. Fergie was the only lady in the group.
Josh and Fergie met in September of 2004, this was while Fergie was making an appearance on a show in Las Vegas where Josh was also cast. They hit it off, began dating, fell in love and decided to tie the knot. The couple had their wedding ceremony at the Church Estate Vineyards. The couple had a child, a son born in August 2013. Watching from the sidelines, everyone would have thought the star couple had everything together. They appeared on the red carpet together, gave interviews, had vacations. It was a bit of a shock when in September 2017, Josh and Fergie issued a statement that they would be splitting from each other.
Fergie, in particular, would later reveal that it was “getting a little weird” acting as though all was well with the marriage. She claims that they still do love each other and there was no bad blood between them.
The same sentiment was echoed by Josh. It was apparent that they were making a conscious effort to make the divorce as smooth as possible. When Fergie was criticized negatively for her rendition of the American national anthem at an NBA All-Star game, Josh came to her defence publicly whilst speaking with DeGeneres.
Josh has had his fair share of romance down the years but he has only been married once and that was to Stacy Ann Ferguson aka Fergie. They were married in January 2009 but split in September 2017.
