Fergie: Nothing will change

October 25, 2017 GMT

Fergie insists everything is “staying the same” between herself and Josh Duhamel.

The 42-year-old singer announced in September she had split from her husband of eight years earlier in the year, but she insisted they are still getting along and are committed to parenting their four-year-old son, Axl.

Speaking on ‘The Talk’, she said: “I’m good, as good as you can be with a separation. The good thing is we don’t lose each other as parents.

“Everything basically is staying the same, except we’re not a romantic couple anymore.

“I love Josh. We’re making it work. We’re both working full time right now. We are just making it happen. We’ve got Axl and we’re just working parents.”

The ‘You Already Know’ singer recently admitted she didn’t want to split from 44-year-old Josh.

She tearfully said: “It wasn’t my plan. I wanted to stay married forever.”

Meanwhile, Fergie previously admitted she still has “so much love” for Josh and she and the ‘Safe Haven’ actor will always be “great friends”.


She shared: “We’re great friends, Josh and I, there’s so much love that we have for each other. We really like each other, we have fun with each other. We’re just not a romantic couple anymore.

“But we are still Axl’s parents through and through, and our families - each other’s families, the cousins, my nieces and nephews - it’s all the same. So that’s the only thing that’s changed.”

Fergie and Josh - who started dating in September 2004 and married in January 2009 - revealed the news of their split in a joint statement released last month, in which they said they had parted ways several months beforehand.

They said: “With absolute love and respect, we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year.

“To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”
