Their son, named Axl Jack, was born in Los Angeles today. The littlest Duhamel is the first child for both parents.
Don’t be surprised if you think they went with a name that may seem ordinary by celebrity standards. Josh opened up to In Touch about the only person they had in mind when picking a name—the baby.
“We took the kid into account,” he said. “We didn’t want him to have some crazy name to live down.”
While they may have stuck with a traditional name, the new parents did find other ways to be creative, like with the decorating of the nursery.
“It’s nature meets industrial,” Josh told In Touch. “There’s really a lot of green, but there’s also a lot of woods and metals. It’s actually a great room for me to hang out in—baby or not!”
Now that the baby is around, the couple—who have been together for almost 10 years, and married four—have a lot to look forward to; but Josh explained he’s excited for everything, and mostly just being around his growing family—even at risk of losing abandoning his familiar lifestyle.
“I just had to back out of a job because I don’t want to miss out on anything,” he told In Touch. “I just want to stay home with my family for as long as I can.”
