In an interview with Chelsea Handler, she said:

I kissed Axl and Josh [Duhamel, her husband] at home — both French. My son likes to French kiss me a lot. It’s so delicious! He goes in for the kill, but I’ll have to cut that off at a certain age, or else it’ll be weird, a little bit Oediupus.

On August 14, the little one took his first steps and Fergie was there to see it all, but Duhamel was working during the milestone.

“He was at work. I felt so bad! But you know, we’re both working parents so each of us are going to get different gifts,” she told Us.

Both practicing Catholics, Fergie agrees that their faith holds them together.

“That’s where that deeper love comes in…The good stuff you get to is on the spiritual level,” she told Oprah.

With their hectic schedules, they still make time for their relationship.

In the interview with More, Duhamel said:

We have a rule. We don’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other. If she is on tour, I will meet up with her, or if I am on a movie, she will come out to where I am filming. Like now, I am shooting in North Carolina, and she is staying with me for a week or two. When we were first together, we didn’t realize it is too difficult to go more than two weeks without being together. We want to stay tight. That is our number-one priority.

Although Fergie is in charge of her career, she can admit that at home, she lets her husband protect her.

“I’m the boss at work, but when I go home, I’m his girl,” she told Glamour.
