Josh Duhamel and Audra Mari started their love story in 2019. Since then, they’ve been living a happy life together, full of love, laughter, and shared dreams. Let’s know about their dreamy love story and married life!
Audra Mari Is The Second Wife Of Josh Duhamel
The 6 feet 4 inches tall Josh Duhamel, the actor from movies like “Transformers” and “Life As We Know It,” was first married to Fergie, the lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas. The love birds got married on January 10, 2009. Their son, Axl, was born in August 2013, bringing lots of joy to their family.
However, in September 2017, the celebrity pair announced that they were separating. Their divorce was finalized two years later. Even though they are no longer married, Duhamel and Fergie still get along well and work together to take care of their son.
How Josh Duhamel and Audra Mari Met For The First Time?
The Safe Haven star Duhamel and the former beauty pageant contestant, Audra Mari, were first seen together in October 2019 when they were spotted kissing at an airport in Toronto.
This news about their relationship came a little over a year after Josh separated from his ex-girlfriend Eiza González and two years after his eight-year marriage with Fergie ended in September 2017.
Talking about Mari, Josh shared with Access Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover shortly after getting engaged, “She’s a very sweet girl. We have very similar interests – we’re both from North Dakota. We love lake life. She has a cabin not far from mine. We just match. She’s an amazing person.”
Got Engaged In 2022
In January, Josh shared how he proposed to Audra in an interview. He explained that although he knew the Hollywood star wanted to propose on a specific sandbar at the beach, he hadn’t figured out the details until they were there.
Moreover, Duhamenla and her wife’s wedding happened less than a year after Josh proposed to Audra. In January 2022, he shared the exciting news on Instagram by posting a photo of them on the beach with a handwritten letter that asked, “Audra Diana Maria, Will You Marry Me?”
He wrote in the post, “It’s on,” mentioning that Audra found a message in a bottle on the shore and said YES!
“On that morning, it kinda hit me — I was like, ‘You know what? You guys have any empty bottles around here?’ And I went and talked to the concierge,” he said. “So we planned it all out — I was gonna walk her down there as this thing was floating up.”
Similarly, there was a little worry before the proposal because the bottle wasn’t on the sand when they reached the sandbar. They played a game of cornhole, and during the diversion, the bottle washed up, allowing Josh to pop the big question to Audra.
When Did They Marry?
The Transformers alum Duhamel got married to his now wife Mari on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at Olivet Lutheran Church in Fargo, North Dakota. The household actor and his bride were seen driving in a red convertible Cadillac on their special day.
Likewise, 51-year-old Josh wore a fancy suit with a tailcoat and a white tie, while the ceelnrity spouse Mari looked stunning in a ballgown with long puff sleeves and a see-through neckline. She had her hair in a low bun with a beautiful veil.
After the wedding, the love mates celebrated at Duffy’s, a local tavern, where they enjoyed food and drinks. According to someone who was there, the couple had a fantastic time, and the whole event was lovely.
