After a high-profile marriage and subsequent divorce from Fergie, Josh Duhamel sparked a low-key romance with now-wife Audra Mari.
“Everyone told me that after you get married you feel different,” Mari exclusively gushed to Us Weekly in September 2022, shortly after exchanging vows with the Safe Haven star. “To be honest, I never really believed them and I thought it would feel the same way it’s felt being with Joshua for the last three years. But it’s much different! I feel secure.”
Duhamel and the former pageant queen wed at Olivet Lutheran Church in Fargo, North Dakota, in September 2022, surrounded by their friends and family. Their ceremony came less than one year after the Love, Simon star proposed to Mari with a message in a bottle.
Duhamel and the beauty queen were first linked in October 2019 after they were spotted kissing at an airport in Toronto. News of the Duhamel’s budding romance came one year after his split from Eiza Gonzalez, whom he dated in 2018 for less than a year. He was previously married to the Black Eyed Peas singer, with whom he shares son Axl, from 2009 to 2017.
After a string of high-profile relationships, Duhamel opened up about living a low-key life with his new love.
“She’s a very sweet girl,” the Transformers actor told Access in January 2022. “Very similar interests — we’re from North Dakota, we love lake life. She’s got a cabin not far from mine. We just match. She’s an amazing person.”
