Didn’t Josh Duhamel get the memo? You don’t “phunk” with Fergie’s heart. And considering the recent ruckus over her version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the NBA All-Star Game, Ferg’s heart was likely in no condition to hear that her ex-husband is dating someone new.
It has only been five months since Fergie and Duhamel announced their split. Granted, they explained in that announcement that they had been living apart for some time. As Fergie herself has sung, life goes on — and for Duhamel, 45, it’s going on with 28-year-old actress/singer Eiza (pronounced “ay-e-zaa”) González.
According to Us Weekly, the pair sparked a connection in super-Hollywood style: at a party after J.Lo’s pre-Super Bowl concert on Feb. 3. A source told the outlet that Duhamel was the pursuer, reaching out “to a mutual friend” to ask for Eiza’s digits after a long night of drinking and hanging out.
She clearly said yes, because the source claims they’ve basically been together ever since.
“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,” says the source.
It isn’t hard to see why Duhamel would be smitten (sorry, Fergs — we still love you!). González, who was born in Mexico City, is stunning. She is also multilingual, speaking Spanish, English and Italian fluently. Although she hasn’t been in a ton of films, her star appears to be on the rise. In 2017, she played Darling in the film Baby Driver, alongside Jon Hamm. And, in addition to having several movies in various stages of production, she starred in a short directed by Justin Timberlake.

This book really changed my life completely. I’m a perfectionist so overthinking decisions was one of my biggest issues. Until I read this book and realized it was out of my control most of the time and educated myself on realistic decision making. Immerse yourself in the discovery of how when you think you have control, your subconscious has already decided for you and it’s taken actions, your brain is always ahead of you. David Redish educates you on how your brain is so powerful and informes you about the real speed it’s working on so you can understand in a deeper sense and work along with it. Basically tells you what your brain is THINKING like a brain whisperer!( ugh soooo cool! 🤓 ) From PTSD and fear associations, flashbulb memory he walks with you in an easy guide book to release yourself. He addresses the science of morality, motivation and how to recognize and work with addictions. This book is truly fascinating and a life game changer. I’ve read it 3 times in different stages of my life and have found new answers every time! Please enjoy I hope this helps you as much as it helped me.❤️ oh… and he thinks I’m holding food 😂 #themindwithinthebrain #neuroscience
She’s a football fan.
She’s passionate about putting an end to bullying.
In summary, she seems like a pretty decent human being. Although it’s always sad to see beloved celebrity couples split up, it’s marginally comforting when they at least move on with good people. Here’s hoping 2018 turns out to be the year Fergie finds what she’s looking for, too — whether that includes a romance or not.
