Clearly not a big fan of the name suggestion, Duhamel added: "I think if we have a dog, we’ll name it Gary."

The Shotgun Wedding actor also praised his ex-wife and her reaction to the baby news.

"Fergie is an amazing woman. She really is. And she’s taken Audra in, you know, and it could be much worse,' he said in an interview on The Jess Cagle Show on Thursday (September 14).

"She only has love for Audra and is excited as well, I can’t believe how excited she is for us. You know, it’s 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."
