Josh Duhamel and Eiza Gonzalez were spotted out on a date night together over the weekend after they kept their relationship under wraps for a long time. The 45-year-old actor was previously romantically linked to Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie and was married to her for around eight years.
The couple went on a sushi date to a restaurant called Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills, California. Duhamel was seen wearing jeans and a short-sleeved button-down shirt, while Eiza, who was previously linked to Liam Hemsworth, was wearing a red blazer and matching trousers.
Duhamel and Gonzalez have kept their relationship on the down low and well out of the spotlight. "They’ve been quietly dating for months. He’s really attracted to her and things are going pretty well," a source told People.
Another source added that they had another date night in Sherman Oaks over the weekend. "They are having a fun weekend," the source said. "Their relationship started out slowly, but lately, they are spending more time together. They seem very happy."
In February, rumors surfaced that the couple was seeing each other. A source told Us Weekly, "They drank and partied together until very late. After, Josh reached out to a mutual friend and asked for Eiza’s number. They definitely have a connection because they’ve been FaceTiming and texting nonstop while she’s been in England working. They’re keeping it on the down-low. He’s telling her he’s never met anyone like her before."
Last year in September, Fergie and Duhamel confirmed that they were ending their eight-year-long marriage. "With absolute love and respect, we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year. To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family."
In an interview with Wendy Williams, Fergie opened up about her breakup with Josh and shared, "It wasn’t my plan. I wanted to stay married forever. I love Josh, he’s the father of my child … You’re making me cry," she said in reference to their four-year-old son, Axl Jack. "We forever have that project together and we’re doing the best we can."
Fergie and Josh's split came as a surprise to many fans and followers but the people close to the couple revealed that the pair had been heading in different directions for a while. "They have been leading separate lives for a long time," a source shared.
