Countdown to baby! Josh Duhamel is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his first child, a baby boy, with wife Fergie. During a press conference for his new movie Scenic Route at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Aug. 15, the 40-year-old actor told reporters that he can't wait to meet his son.

"There is a lot of anticipation going on at the Duhamel household right now," he shared. "It's pretty exciting."

The dad-to-be said he's very proud of how Fergie, 38, has been handling her first pregnancy. "I'm mostly impressed with how gracefully . . . I mean she's just been awesome throughout this whole thing," he gushed about his wife of four years. "She's taken really good care of herself, she's happy, she's in great spirits, she looks beautiful and I'm just really proud of her more than anything. And I'm really excited to meet this little dude. I can't wait."

Duhamel also said he's going to be taking a little break from work to be home with Fergie while they wait for their son's arrival. "Right now it's baby time, so I'm going to be home," the actor explained. "Then I've got a bunch of projects that are in development that we're producing with my company, which I'm really excited about. So it's going to give me some time to be home for that."

The parents-to-be haven't shared the name they've picked out for their little boy yet, but they will probably be using the last name Duhamel. On Friday, Aug. 16, TMZ reported that a judge granted the request Fergie made last month to legally change her name from Stacy Ann Ferguson to Fergie Duhamel.
