Josh Duhamel is hosting the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards on Saturday, and babies are clearly on the brain for the "Safe Haven" star.
"I am ready to be a father," Fergie's husband exclaimed to omg! at the Blackberry Z10 launch party in West Hollywood on Wednesday. "I am doing a lot of reading."
Duhamel is mere months away from joining the elite Hot Hollywood Dad's Club, but the actor brushes off mention of being called "Hollywood's Hottest Dad."
"No, no, no," he laughed. "That's Channing Tatum. I'm always chasing Tatum. That would be the story of my life: 'Chasing Tatum.'"
"My wife is reading 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' right now," Duhamel told omg!, referencing his true love, Fergie. "We like to keep up on what's actually happening. We are fascinated by the fact there is a little baby growing inside of her. Everyday we're like, 'Wow, this is actually happening! You can feel it growing!' She calls it a life-force."
Duhamel was in attendance at the star-studded bash at Cecconi's with guests like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cristina Ricci, Mark Salling, and Tim Allen -- who all mingled closely while sipping on Grey Goose cocktails.
Although Fergie was not in attendance, the "Black Eyed Peas" goddess was on her husband's mind the entire night.
"The other day, it dawned on us. We've know for months, but it dawned on us again that this thing is happening, -- and it's coming --there is no pushing pause on a DVR, it's coming,'" Duhamel laughed, talking to omg!.
"I have so much admiration for women," he continued. "They basically give themselves up and become a vessel for these babies. I'm actually fascinated by that connection between mother and a baby, and how that develops, and watching that all happen."
As far as Duhamel and Fergie are personally concerned: "We're just very happy," he says about expecting his first child with the songstress.
So, is the Black Eyed Peas front woman having any weird cravings?
"Citrus!" Duhamel joked. "And grapefruit. I don't know if I'm giving away too much?"
