“We just grew. And we grew into realizing that we wanted the same things in life. We wanted the same path. We both come from Catholic families,” Fergie tells Allure Magazine. Seven years later it seems the Black Eyed Peas performer and her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, are a united front.
The singer revealed that Duhamel asked her father for her hand in marriage before he popped the big question and thankfully her dad said yes.
So, what are some key things that have helped the couple’s long-lasting relationship? For starters, they are believers in the importance of couple’s therapy. Fergie said that her husband is “not afraid…. He doesn’t feel like he’s not man enough…” for counseling.
Another factor that has helped the pair are the guidelines they set in place while the 39-year-old is on tour, and her hubby is filming away from home. “My husband and I made a two-week rule,” which is the maximum time on the road alone. “We’ve already talked about how we’re going to have to trade off,” she continued. “He’s going to have to come on tour with Axl for a while, and then there’ll be a break. He’ll take a job; I’ll be on set with [Axl]. You know?” Axl is the duo’s adorable 16-month-old son.
