The Truth About Eiza González And Josh Duhamel's Relationship

Josh Duhamel and Fergie separated after eight years of marriage in 2017 and finalized their divorce in 2019, according to People. Shortly after their separation, Duhamel was rumored to be dating Eiza González. Their romance was confirmed not too long after rumors began flying. A source told Entertainment Tonight in February 2018, "It's apparently the real deal. They're spending time together as a couple with friends." 

It didn't take long to figure out how their romance began. A source told US Weekly that the pair met at Jennifer Lopez's concert before the Super Bowl and spent time together after the event. After partying together that night, Duhamel asked a mutual friend for her number and the pair kept in touch. The insider said, "They're keeping it on the down low. He's telling her he's never met anyone like her before."

The couple seemed to be keeping things very private, although distance did keep them apart. González was filming in England shortly after they began seeing each other, but the pair kept in communication through texting and FaceTime. There was also another reason the couple was keeping things so lowkey.

Josh Duhamel fell for Eiza Gonzalez fast

Shortly after Josh Duhamel and Eiza González met at Super Bowl festivities in 2018, their romance appeared to blossom quickly. In March 2018, it was clear that they were together, but the pair seemed to keep things incredibly private and seemingly for a respectful reason. A source told Entertainment Tonight, "Josh is head over heels for Eiza, but he felt guilty that he had feelings for another woman so quickly and he wants to be respectful to Fergie so he has kept this relationship very, very private."

The source added that Duhamel wanted to be respectful to the mother of his child. Fergie and Duhamel were continuing to co-parent their son, Axel, and continued to maintain a healthy friendship after their split, per E! News, and his quickly developing relationship with Gonzalez was best to keep lowkey as a result.

The couple finally stepped out together for a dinner date at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills in June 2018, according to People, and made a subtle public debut as a couple. A source told the outlet that they seemed very happy together and had been dating quietly for months at the time. And while the couple appeared to be in a good place, things took a turn for the worse that next month.

Eiza Gonzalez and Josh Duhamel called it quits after 5 months together

After just five months of dating, Us Weekly confirmed that Eiza González and Josh Duhamel split in July 2018. A source explained that they simply drifted apart. While leaving his gym, the actor reportedly told photographers, "If you are looking for Eiza, we're done" (via Daily Mail). The news came as a bit of a shock as the couple was spotted together in Mexico packing on the PDA during July 4th weekend just weeks earlier (via E! News).

It became apparent that Duhamel was the one to end things with González as they were in two different points in their lives. He also reportedly missed his ex-wife, Fergie, according to Daily Mail, and friends of the former couple were hoping they would get back together (via Entertainment Tonight). A source told Daily Mail, "Eiza was very busy with work and so was Josh." The insider continued, "She was willing to do whatever it took to make it last, but Josh just isn't in that place at the moment."

González was apparently looking to settle down and find her life partner while Duhamel was still grieving his failed marriage to Fergie. Following their break-up, it appears that both parties have since moved on. Duhamel got engaged to Audra Mari in January, per People, and González has recently been romantically linked to Jason Momoa.
