He’s heard about the sleepless nights, a newborn’s neediness and even how daddy duty will forever change his life.
“Everyone is saying, ‘You better sleep now [because] you’re not going to get any when the baby’s here,’ [and] ‘Oh, your life is over after that,’ [and] ‘Oh, it’s the most beautiful thing ever, but it’s tough,’” the actor, 40, tells ET Canada.
“I look forward to putting the attention [on the baby]. All the love that you have for something like that is what makes it so great and I think we are both ready for that.”
Already anticipating life after baby arrives, the Strings star hopes to take time off to enjoy first-time fatherhood.
Eventually, Duhamel adds, the couple will make it a priority to plan around their work commitments.
“I can’t imagine having a kid and then not being able to be there — that would just drive me crazy. My head would be at home with mom and baby,” he explains. “We want to work it out so that we can be together; whether I am working, they can come with [me] or if she is working I can go with them. I can’t see myself ever wanting to be away from my wife and kid.”
As for pregnancy symptoms, he’s unsure of whether Fergie has any crazy cravings, but does admit his sweet tooth is going strong — as always.
“Not much different than before — ice cream and chocolate pretty much. But that’s always [a craving] whether she is pregnant or not,” Duhamel jokes.
