The Black Eyed Peas singer was back in the charts at the end of last year with "L.A. Love (La La)," the first single off her forthcoming solo album. And while the singer's excited to be back making music, she and husband Josh Duhamel have made a set of ground rules to ensure family life with son Axl, 16 months, doesn't get compromised by work.
"We wanted the same things in life,” Fergie says of her husband of six years. “We wanted the same path. We both come from Catholic families.”
These days the couple make sure their relationship stays strong by attending regular therapy sessions. "He's not afraid," she says of her actor husband's willingness to join in. "He doesn’t feel like he’s not man enough."
The duo have sorted out some rules they hope will keep family life on an even keel now mom Fergie's back to work.
"My husband and I made a two-week rule,” she explains to the publication, meaning they'll never be apart longer than that. "We’ve already talked about how we’re going to have to trade off,” she explains. “He’s going to have to come on tour with Axl for a while, and then there’ll be a break. He’ll take a job; I’ll be on set with Axl," she says.
Fergie explains she and Duhamel's relationship is pretty open, and the singer has few secrets from the man in her life.
"I mean, he’s walked in on me during my bikini waxing, and I'm like, 'Okay honey, hi,’” she says. “And I'm on all fours, but he doesn’t just leave; he gets curious,” she adds, laughing.
On the subject of beauty and health treatments, the singer reveals one secret to her amazing figure: green breakfast smoothies.
“Kale, romaine, spinach, half a banana, half a pear, half an apple, a little bit of water, and a juiced orange in the Vitamix," she says of her favorite morning recipe. "It's changed my life. It’s like a buzz. It gives me a little sugar boost, but it’s all healthy sugar! I did it during my pregnancy. Axl Jack just loves it. We call it Green Goo.”
