Fergie’s had no comment on the divorce, while 46-year-old Duhamel’s rep did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
The couple announced their split after eight years of marriage in a joint statement they made in September 2017.
According to tye two,”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.”
Duhamel and Fergie share a 5-year-old son, Axl.
Following their separation, Fergie spoke about balancing her career and motherhood at a TCA panel in January 2018. The singer said while she wasn’t planning on having more children, she wasn’t closed off to the idea either.
Fergie said, “So, right now, I’m not thinking about that because I’ve got so much on my plate and I’m just trying to be the best Mom for my little Punky Pie — that’s what I call him.”
Fergie admitted that, “I’m constantly having to have boundaries to make sure that all of those hours are in and it’s a balanced lifestyle, because I’ve got so much on my plate that sometimes, I’m just a tired mom.”
Duhamel expressed a desire to have more children while on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard in December 2018.
He said,” I want to have more kids in the next few years,so it’s more about finding someone young enough to have kids….I’m trying to find a girl that I can be with and have a family with.”
While Duhamel and Fergie may no longer be together, the two have maintained a friendly relationship.
