Fergie and Josh Reaching for a Baby Bandaid?
The danger of trying to have a baby to “save” a marriage
-April Daniels Hussar
The first year of marriage is tough – everyone knows that. The excitement of the wedding planning is long fizzled, the princess-for-a-day dress packed away, the bachelor party photos hidden, and the honeymoon … yep, it’s over. Some couples cope with it better than others. And some struggle. By all accounts, Fergie and Josh Duhamel fall into the latter category. Reports have been flying that, a mere six months after walking down the aisle, their made-in-Hollywood marriage is rocky. So why then, are they trying to have a baby?
Yes, it looks like the Black Eyed Pea and her hunky Transformers hubby are reaching for that magical – and nonexistent – Baby Bandaid in an attempt to save their marriage.
Friends of Josh Duhamel tell BettyConfidential.com that he and Fergie are trying to have a baby. Fergie, 34, has admitted that she and Josh, 36, want children, but the time wasn’t right since she was on tour with the Black Eyed Peas. But, now that the tour is ending in October, they have started planning. In fact, Josh is so excited that he recently stopped into the Beverly Hills maternity store A Pea in the Pod. While looking at maternity clothes, he called Fergie on his cell.
“Josh was on the phone with Fergie and laughing while looking at maternity clothes,” says the insider. “He looked like a proud father already! Then, after about 15 minutes, he noticed he was being watched and when the saleswoman asked if he needed help, he quickly said, ‘No, thanks,’ and darted out of the store.”
So what do experts say about the couple’s attempt to put a Pea in Fergie’s Pod so soon after their walk down the aisle? In a nutshell … BAD IDEA!
