Josh Duhamel Is Ready to Be a Sports Dad After First Baseball Game with Son Axl

08/09/2016 at 03:00 PM ET

With his son Axl Jack just about to turn 3, Josh Duhamel admits he’s eager to become a full-on sports dad if the youngest Duhamel ends up as into athletics as the rest of his family.

“I’ll be that guy probably coaching,” Duhamel, who plays the legendarily colorful ’70s-era Major League Baseball pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee in the upcoming film Spaceman, tells PEOPLE.

Although Axl is still a few years away from organized sports, the actor thinks he may have a soccer player in the making at home.

“Right now it’s soccer, but it could be baseball. Who knows?” says Duhamel, 43.

Josh Duhamel and Son Axl Spend the Day at Legoland: See the Photos!

07/11/2016 at 04:45 PM ET

It was quite the Sunday Funday for Josh Duhamel and his mini me!

The 11.22.63 star and 2½-year-old son Axl Jack spent the day at Legoland California Resort. One stop on their tour? The new NINJAGO World, which houses five interactive attractions — including NINJAGO The Ride, which allows visitors to defeat villains using just their hand motions to launch elements like fire, ice, and lightning.

At one point, Duhamel, 43, cheered Axl on as he played a game within the NINJAGO World section of the park.

Josh Duhamel’s Mother’s Day Plans for Fergie Will Be ‘Low-Key’: ‘We’re Just Going to Be a Family’

05/07/2016 at 05:15 PM ET

Josh Duhamel and Fergie know how to enjoy a night out, but this Mother’s Day, it’s going to be a cozy night in.

“Ferg is right in the middle of shooting a video, so it’s going to be a pretty low-key Mother’s Day,” Duhamel, 43, told PEOPLE while attending the Kentucky Derby Saturday with G.H. Mumm champagne.

Between both of their schedules, the actor says he and his pop star wife have been “crazy busy” for the last couple of weeks and are looking forward to enjoying some quiet family time with son Axl, 2.

“I [asked her], what do you want to do? We got the whole day off,” said Duhamel, 43. “She said: ‘I just want to order some food in, and be with you and Axl.’ We’re just going to sit at home and just be a family.”

“It’s going to be nice just to have a very low-key, at home, Mother’s Day,” Duhamel said. “We’ll probably order in from someplace fancy, but that’s about as extravagant as we’ll get.”

Josh Duhamel Wants Son Axl to Know His North Dakota Roots: ‘It’s Part of Him’

02/18/2016 at 02:30 PM ET

Living in Los Angeles, Josh Duhamel sometimes feels like a fish out of water.

“You can take the kid out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the kid,” Duhamel, who grew up in North Dakota, tells PEOPLE.

“I’m one of the only guys in L.A. who drives a truck, I think. I still drive a GMC that I’ve had since 2004. I’m never getting rid of it.”

The 11.22.63 star doesn’t just act like a Midwesterner; he thinks like one, too. “It’s in my blood,” he laughs. “It’s ingrained in me. My way of thinking is different sometimes.”

Guy is to grown man as boy is to, well, Josh Duhamel‘s 2-year-old son, Axl Jack.

“[Axl] looked at me the other day and he goes, ‘Daddy, you’re a good guy,’ and I go, ‘Thank you, Axl. You’re a good guy, too!’ ” Duhamel told PEOPLE about his and Fergie‘s hilarious offspring at the Los Angeles press day for Lost in the Sun on Tuesday. “And he goes, ‘No, I’m Axl. I’m a boy.’ ”

Duhamel, 42, continues, “He sees a guy as a grown man and he doesn’t see himself as that, so he’s still a boy.”

Luckily for the actor and his songstress wife, Axl’s terrible twos have been quite the breeze, thus far.

“He’s pretty good,” says Duhamel of Axl, who celebrated his second birthday in August. “He’s got his moments, but like I said, he’s a very sweet natured, kind, happy little guy.”

Fergie and Josh Duhamel Celebrate ‘Little Maverick’ Axl’s 2nd Birthday

08/30/2015 at 11:53 AM ET

Fergie and Josh Duhamel‘s son Axl Jack Duhamel is pretty fly for a 2-year-old.

The Black Eyed Peas songstress honored her cool cutie’s second birthday on Saturday with a picture of Axl giving his best Top Gun impression.

Clad in a green U.S. Army uniform, and donning comically oversized aviators with his mowhawk, the blonde toddler looked like a more-adorable version of Tom Cruise‘s Maverick from the 1986 classic.

“Happy 2nd bday to my little maverick axl jack duhamel #imtwofoo,” the 40-year-old singer wrote on Instagram.

Josh Duhamel Says Son Axl Has ‘Discovered Candy’

06/19/2015 at 02:15 PM ET

Josh Duhamel‘s son may not have all his teeth yet, but he sure has developed a sweet tooth!

“[He’s] discovered candy, which we’re hoping to stay off as long as possible,” the actor tells PEOPLE of 22-month-old son Axl Jack‘s new-found obsession that he and wife Fergie, 40, are attempting to monitor and “only trying to give him on special occasions.”

The couple aren’t always successful, though! “When my sister and my friends are in town and they see him, that’s the first thing they do to try to win his favor,” Duhamel, 42, explains.

As Axl morphs from a baby to a toddler (cue the tears), “every day there seems to be something,” the actor, who recently starred on Battle Creek, reveals. “He’s been counting and singing his ABCs.”
