How did Josh meet Audra?
The Safe Haven star, 49, has been linked to the beauty pageant queen, 28, since 2019. The pair were first spotted kissing at the Toronto Airpost in October of that year, and sources close to them revealed that they’d been “casually dating” for a few months, per Entertainment Tonight. Since the couple got more serious, Josh revealed that he knew “pretty early on” that they were a great match, naming some of the common qualities they have in a February interview with ET. “We’re both from North Dakota and I think there’s a commonality that we have. She’s great,” he said.
They got married in North Dakota
Josh and Audra had a lavish wedding in their home state’s city Fargo. The couple pulled up to the ceremony in a hot, red sports car, with The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers star rocking a black tux with a white bow tie and his bride in a gorgeous gown. The pair had first announced that they were engaged in January, when Josh popped the question on Audra’s birthday. “It’s on!! She found a message in a bottle that washed ashore and said YES!!” he wrote in an Instagram caption, announcing their engagement.
Josh wants more kids
While Josh and Audra’s future plans aren’t clear yet, he has been open about wanting to have more children since his divorce from Fergie. He revealed that he wants more little ones during a 2018 appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast. “I want to have more kids in the next few years,” he said, when speaking about what he was looking for in a new partner. “So it’s more about finding someone young enough to have kids.”
He dated Eliza Gonzalez before meeting Audra
Before meeting Audra, Josh was briefly involved with actress Eliza Gonzalez, 32. The Baby Driver star was Josh’s first romance after his split from Fergie. The pair went public with their romance in June 2018, but apparently, they’d dated for a few months prior. Unfortunately, they broke up in July 2018, because of conflicting schedules, per People.
He was married to Fergie
Josh’s first marriage was to Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, 47. The couple tied the knot in 2009, and they announced their separation in 2017. The divorce was finalized in 2019. Despite the breakup, they’re seemingly on good terms! When the Transformers star announced his engagement to Audra, Fergie congratulated the couple. A source close to the pair revealed to HollywoodLife exclusively that they’re still friends. “Fergie and Josh have nothing but love and respect for one another. There has never been and continues to not be any bad blood between them,” the insider said in June 2019. “They consider one another friends and there’s no drama.”
He has a son with Fergie
It’s great that Josh and the “Fergalicious” still have a positive relationship with each other because they share a son to co-parent. Fergie gave birth to their baby boy Axl Jack, 9, in August 2013. The actor is clearly a loving dad and has shared photos of his son. He posted some adorable pictures of the two of them for Father’s Day in June. “To all my fellow fathers out there. Keep up the good work. These kids need their dads,” he wrote in the Instagram caption.
