Josh Duhamel: Baby's name is sacred

Josh Duhamel says Fergie's influence on their unborn baby's name was more "rock and roll" than his.

The high-profile pair are currently expecting their first child together, a little boy.

Josh says they are keeping quiet about their new family addition's moniker because they don't want anyone to influence their decision.

“Some people may not like it, some people may think it’s really cool, but we don’t really care — that’s why we’re not telling anybody,” he explained to People. “We’re not even telling [Fergie's] mom, because we don’t want to hear anything about it. That way you don’t feel like you’re second-guessing yourself. It’s between us - it’s a sacred thing.

“[The name is] kind of traditional, kind of not. My wife is a little rock and roll, so she’s a little bit more daring in that department than I am. We decided on a name that we both really love and I think will suit this child.”

Josh recently wrapped up filming on upcoming movie Strings in Canada. The 40-year-old star is glad the short schedule allowed him to come straight back to his pregnant wife's side.

“I really don’t want to be away from her right now. I definitely don’t want to be gone when the baby’s here. But I feel very, very blessed to have a wife that’s going through this pregnancy so beautifully," he gushed.

“She’s really been good. I think that’s why she feels so good. She’s been eating really healthy. She does [give into cravings] a little bit of course - she always has and she always will - but she stayed very disciplined because it’s all about what goes into her body goes into the baby.”
