American actor Josh Duhamel and American model, television host and beauty pageant titleholder Audra Mari have welcomed their new son named Shepherd Lawrence Duhamel.

The 50-year-old Transformers actor and his wife confirmed the information on Instagram by sharing a picture of their infant’s feet on 17 January. The couple announced in the caption of their image that their kid was born on 11 January, about a week before the news was publicly shared with their fans.

Duhamel also shares his 10-year-old son Axl with his former partner Stacy Ann “Fergie” Ferguson, who is an American singer, songwriter, rapper and actress. When the actor’s son learned he would be a big brother, he responded in a cute way. In an interview with Parade, Duhamel revealed that Axl came to a realization about what he was going to be, an older brother, and questioned his father whether he is still going to love him after the baby is born.

The actor from Shotgun Wedding expressed to his son that of course he is still going to love him. Axl then asked whether he will still be considered the firstborn son, to which Duhamel replied that “Yeah, you’re still the firstborn son!”

Axl is a very charming young man. And he adores children, as exclaimed by the father. Duhamel also talked about how when he was his age, he was the same way as he too has a deep passion for infants.

He explains the reason of his adoration for children as “There’s something about them”. According to Duhamel, Axl also does a great job with smaller children and so he believes that he will make a fantastic older brother.

Plans for the Future

Duhamel discussed the couple’s future goals after marrying Mari in September of 2022 in a clip from his earlier this year appearance on In Depth with Graham Bensinger.

Josh reportedly “always wanted to have eight or nine kids,” according to the actor’s sister Ashlee Duhamel, to which Bensinger retorted, explaining that that was his wish when he was much younger.

Mari explained that the age aspect of them doesn’t normally come into conversation, but it definitely does when they are speaking of having babies. The 30-year-old further added that If Duhamel were even 40 years old right now, she genuinely thinks that he would have five more children.

However, the couple still wishes to have a few children if God is willing, and Josh confirmed to this fact, saying “That’s the hope”.
