Josh Duhamel got plenty of practice playing a reluctant daddy in the new movie Life As We Know It. Now the sexy star says he’s ready to make babies in real life with wife Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson.
OMG Josh Duhamel has babies on the brain! The sexy 37-year-old, who married Black Eyed Peas‘ lead singer Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson in early 2009, not only plays a father (opposite Katherine Heigl) in the new film Life As We Know It, but now he’s ready to become one in real life. “I know a family will be the best thing that ever happened to me,” he says. We bet Josh and Fergie, 35, will make some adorably and talented kids! When HollyBaby.com caught up with Josh, we couldn’t resist asking about his future family plans, and his shirtless scenes, as well as what’s up with Transformers 3.
So do you want to have kids with Fergie?
It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It was actually part of the reason I was drawn to this story. I think a lot of guys feel scared and wonder if they can become a dad.
Do you have an experience with kids?
My younger sister actually has twins babies. I read in this script that if you turn on the fan over the stove, it soothes babies when they’re crying, so the next time I was at my sister’s house, I held her baby up to the stove fan. It really worked!
You seemed like a natural when it came to interacting with the triplets who play your new daughter in Life As We Know It.
I went to Atlanta to meet them early. When we got to the set, the girls really responded to me because I got to know them well. It was helpful because the girls could play on the set between takes and feel comfortable. I have an affinity for kids. I think we can understand each other on the same emotional level.
What do you think of the shot of you on the movie poster, which shows you in your undies?
It’s not a sexy pose. I’m running after a toddler and it looks like I have 60-year-old man legs on me. I look at that poster and think, “I really need to go back to the gym.”
But didn’t you insist on keeping your shirt on in the movie?
I didn’t want to do a lot of shirtless stuff in this movie. The baby actually walks by me one day in nothing more than diapers and little pink running shoes. She’s holding her bottle of milk. So, I agreed to run after her in my underwear, holding a beer bottle. Again, it wasn’t sexy.
Well, we disagree! But anyway, what’s up with Transformers 3?
The machines mate and have little babies who are left to me. They’re stubborn little bastards. I’m just kidding, but seriously it’s a kick-ass movie. There’s more at stake and jaw-dropping action scenes.”
It’s official — Josh is sexy and funny. We can’t wait to see him heating up the big screen!
