On Thursday, Josh Duhamel was spotted for the first time since news broke of his separation from wife Fergie.
Duhamel was snapped without his wedding ring while taking a hike alone in Los Angeles.
While Duhamel was in L.A., Fergie was in Brazil. She took to Instagram to show love for her fans, saying in an Instagram story, "Hey, everybody, I just wanted to thank you for your love and support. Truly, it means the world to me.”
Many are surprised by their separation after eight years of marriage, but what may have caused their split? A source told People magazine, "People close to them won’t be surprised that this ended. A big factor is how different Fergie and Josh are. In the beginning, it was what attracted them to each other and made them so fun to be around.”
The insider claimed that Josh wanted “more kids,” while Fergie was “very focused on her career.”
Two years ago, Josh expressed his desire for more kids while sitting down with “Extra” at Universal Studios Hollywood, saying, "I would love to, she would love to, but right now it’s about figuring out when it’s going to happen.”
Josh and Fergie are parents to son Axl.
