New parents Fergie and Josh Duhamel went out on a dinner date at Hakkasan Restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Wednesday (September 25).
Josh had flown in earlier in the day from New York City where he attended the Hugo Boss flagship store opening. At the event he explained to E! News why he and Fergie chose to release Axl’s hearing test photo as his first public introduction.
He explained, “That was a photo I took when he was getting his hearing test and it was just a funny, cute—it wasn’t his cutest photo—but it was very fitting, considering who is mother was. It looked like he was jammin’ to music at like two days old. And so, that was the photo she wanted to put out first.”
He added of his son – who was born on August 29 – “First of all, we’re obsessed with him. We can’t stop staring at him. He’s our little man, we made him together. I think there’s something you can’t really describe until you go through it. I think any parents out there would understand that…It’s just an incredible time for both of us.”
The actor said his wife “is doing so great.”
“She really is. She is happy. She looks amazing for, you know, three weeks ago she gave birth and she looks probably better than she did before. I don’t know if it’s because of what she’s been eating or what, she looks really, really great.”
Asked about the biggest surprise as a dad he added, “They tell you that at his age, all they do is eat, sleep and poop. And what I’ve learned—what surprises me—is they can actually do all three at the same time. He can actually eat, sleep and poop at the same time. Who knew?”
