Josh Duhamel is ENGAGED!

Josh Duhamel is ENGAGED! Actor pops question to Audra Mari on her 28th birthday after two years of dating... and gets support from ex-wife Fergie

Josh Duhamel announced his engagement to girlfriend of two years on Audra Mari on Saturday. The 49-year-old actor popped the question on her 28th birthday, and shared snaps of the beachside proposal, writing 'It's on!!'

The marriage will mark his second and her first. His ex-wife Fergie — who he was married to for nearly a decade — showed her support for the happy pair in the comments

The Las Vegas actor seemed to get a bit creative with the proposal as the pair vacationed in a tropical location. He asked for her hand in marriage with a message in a bottle that read 'Audra Diane Mari will you marry me?'

After she said 'yes' he shared a snap of the happy moment. 'It's on!! She found a message in a bottle that washed ashore and said YES!!' he captioned the post. Among the congratulatory comments was ex-wife Fergie who wrote 'Congrats!!!!' with a string of hearts.

The former pair — who share an eight-year-old son together, Axl — announced their separation in 2017. The couple had said in a joint statement: '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.'

Josh and Audra were first spotted out together in May 2019 — the same month he and Fergie filed for divorce. 'Josh and Audra met through mutual friends and get along really well.

The two have a great time together and are on the same page about what they want their future to be,' a source told ET. The Shotgun Wedding actor had previously opened up about his desire to have more children and how he wanted to find love again following the split. 'I want to have more kids in the next few years

. So it's more about finding someone young enough to have kids,' he said on a December 2018 episode of the Armchair Expert podcast. 'It's not as if I'm out there just trying to f**k anything, that's really not who I am. I'm trying to find a girl that I can be with and have a family with, you know?'Audra, a former beauty queen who is 21 years his junior, had previously dated Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott from 2013 to 2015.
