Chris Pratt and Anna Faris aren't the only former married couple who are now just "great friends," as Fergie admitted that it is now her current status with former husband, Josh Duhamel. In an emotional appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show," the 42-year-old singer admitted, while holding back tears, that it "wasn't my plan" to separate from her husband, as she "wanted to stay married forever." Fergie and Duhamel began dating in September 2004 when she and her band, the Black Eyed Peas, filmed an appearance in an episode of Duhamel's series, "Las Vegas." The pair was engaged in December 2007, before tying the knot in January 2009. Four years later, the pair welcomed their son, Axl Jack.

No bad blood between the former couple

While Fergie did not disclose the main reason for the split, she did say that there's "so much love" between herself and Josh Duhamel. She added that they "really like each other," but that they are no longer " a romantic couple" anymore. According to Entertainment Tonight, the announcement of their separation was made in September, but the pair had been separated since February.

Alx Jack is their 'project'

Fergie and Josh Duhamel's eight-year marriage spawned Axl Jack, who is now four years old. In talking to Wendy Williams, Fergie mused that "We forever have that project together and we're doing the best we can" to co-parent their only son. Fergie is currently busy following the release of her latest record "Double Dutchess" in September.
