Josh Duhamel is a brand new daddy as of today! Congratulations to Josh and his wife Fergie on the birth of their baby boy Axl Jack Duhamel. And let me tell you, there is nothing is more exciting and nerve-wracking than the arrival of your first child – and celebrity parents are no exception! Josh Duhamel, 40, can attest to this, as he’s one busy dad-to-be. Just a week before his baby was born, Josh has been busy with Valspar Paint and Habitat for Humanity launching Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat, a program that benefits Habitat’s Disaster Response program.
Our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop got some information on what Duhamel has been up to including his involvement with Habitat program. Check out the highlights below:
On his involvement in the Habitat program:
“I feel especially passionate about this program because after my hometown in North Dakota was hit in 2011, I saw firsthand how many families were affected and how many people needed to rebuild. When I learned about the work that Valspar was doing with Habitat, I just wanted to be involved with the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat campaign. There’s an auction kicking off today on Valspar’s Facebook page where people can bid on canvases that various celebrities put their handprints on. We’ll be auctioning them off and all the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity’s Disaster Response programs.”
On becoming a father:
“Excitement isn’t even the word. Everybody I know that has children says it changes their life and that you cant understand the kind of love you have for a child until you have a kid, and I’m so excited for that.”
On what kind of mother he thinks Fergie will be:
“She’ll be great. I have no doubt she’ll be an amazing mom.”
