Following an announcement about their divorce back in June, Josh Duhamel and Fergie have made things official and gotten their divorce finalized. Although their romantic relationship has ended, the two will likely remain in one another's lives.
The two still have children together, which means they'll have to figure out a way to continue seeing each other without resentment building up. Thankfully, one source says the couple still have a great relationship and plan to continue parenting together as co-parents.
"They love each other dearly and they have a great relationship since separating," the source told E! News. "But they needed to finalize things so they could truly move on and close that chapter of their lives. There was no culprit, it was just time."
The pair made their divorce final in late November, and have taken their time figuring out what their relationship should be moving forward. Like it or not, divorce always brings a lot of change with it.
"They took their time figuring things out and making sure this was the right decision," the E! source continued. "They had a long separation to see if there was any chance of things changing. Over time, it became clear that they had made the right decision and that it was time to move on."
Although the two have a great relationship now, plenty of people close to the couple have known this was on the horizon for quite a while.
"Friends have been expecting them to split for a while now," a source told Us Weekly. The source continued by explaining that the pair were "just too different." The source added, "Josh is a normal guy and Fergie wants to have this Hollywood celebrity lifestyle. They just grew apart." Prior to the split, the two of them had been together for 13 years.
In the months since their split was made official, Fergie has not been linked to anyone else romantically.
Duhamel, on the other hand, has been dating Audra Mari. Mari is a beauty queen who won Miss World America.
Previously, Duhamel has expressed a desire to settle down and have more children. "I want to have more kids in the next few years," he said on the Armchair Expert podcast. "So it’s more about finding someone young enough to have kids. It’s not as if I’m out there just trying to f**k anything, that’s really not who I am. I’m trying to find a girl that I can be with and have a family with, you know?"
