Duhamel, on the other hand, has been dating Audra Mari. She is a beauty queen who won Miss World America. When Duhamel and Mari were first spotted together a month before he and Fergie filed for divorce. He previously said he wanted to settle down with someone who was young enough to have kids. “I want to have more kids in the next few years. 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?”
