"Fergie is an amazing woman. She really is," Josh—who split from Fergie in 2017 before finalizing their divorce two years later—said on an episode of SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show shared Sept. 14. "And she's taken Audra in. And it could be much worse. That's the thing is you never know how these things are gonna go."
Fans got a glimpse into just how well things are going after Fergie congratulated her ex and his wife on their announcement earlier this week that they're expecting their first child together—with the "Glamorous" artist writing on Instagram, "I am truly happy for you guys. Axl can't wait to be a big brother."
Josh seemed to appreciate Fergie's well-wishes too and expressed how much he values their dynamic.
"Because she's such a kindhearted person—she really, truly is—she only has love for Audra and is excited as—I can't believe how excited she is for us," the Transformers star continued. "Like I said, it could be a lot worse. And I've seen it. I've lived it. And thankfully we have a really civil situation."
And when it comes to fatherhood, Josh—who tied the knot with Audra in 2022—is ready to get it started all over again.
"Jumping back in at this ripe old age, Jess," the 50-year-old shared. "I'm doing it, and I cannot wait. To me, that's what it's about. I'm meant to be a dad. There's nothing I enjoy more than to watch my boy—I have a 10-year-old who's the best thing I ever did. And so, I get to do this again and hopefully again after that. And yeah, we're very excited. Axl's gonna be a great older brother. Audra's gonna be a great mother. Very blessed."
