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.”

Fergie: How Josh Duhamel and I Make Our Marriage Work

01/20/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

When Josh Duhamel got the chance to meet his future wife Fergie in 2004,  it was truly a dream come true.

The meeting, Fergie says in the February issue of Allure, came shortly after Duhamel had recalled his vivid thoughts — featuring the “My Humps” singer — to a reporter.

“Yeah, yeah, exactly — he just wanted to get in my pants,” the songstress, 39, jokes of their initial encounter, which eventually became the start to their now 10-year relationship.

“We just grew. And we grew into realizing that we wanted the same things in life. We wanted the same path,” explains Fergie. “We both come from Catholic families.”

Josh Duhamel‘s little boy isn’t so little anymore.

“He’s already swimming around in the pool, and I was like, ‘What the hell happened to my baby?’ He’s walking all over the place, talking. He’s a toddler now!” the actor tells PEOPLE of 13-month-old Axl Jack.

“It happens quick. Next thing you know, they’re going off to college. So that’s one thing I’ve really taken to heart, trying to be there as much as I can.”

Axl is growing into his own musical tastes. He listens to the new songs mom Fergie is recording and has repped Wu Tang Clan on Instagram. But Duhamel, 41, says his son is really into Bob Marley: His parents read him the children’s picture book Every Little Thing by Marley’s daughter, Cedella, and sing along to the lyrics.

“He loves that book,” the You’re Not You star says. “It’s the one book we can get him to sit down and actually listen to.”

First it was football and now it’s soccer! Josh Duhamel is clearly giving son Axl a well-rounded sports education.

On Thursday (right before the big match), the actor posted an adorable pic of the pair wearing matching USA jerseys. “GO #USA!!! (or a Portugal/Ghana tie would be fantastic) #USMNT #LetsDoThis,” Duhamel wrote.

Along with his big smile, we couldn’t help aww-ing over Axl’s mini soccer outfit and Adidas sneakers. Fingers crossed, the 10-month-old is Team USA’s lucky charm against Germany.
