Newlyweds loved up on their paradise trip


Newlywed Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has been relaxing on her Maldives honeymoon, canoeing and pottering about with husband Josh Duhamel.

Fergie, 33, and actor Josh, 36, tied the knot in Malibu on 10 January before jetting off to their secluded £10,000-a week suite at the One And Only Reethi Rah hotel.

A fan who chatted to Fergie at Los Angeles airport said: ‘She told me the wedding was amazing.’

On arriving at the hotel the singer headed straight to the spa for a massage, no doubt tired after the long flight and one-hour boat transfer to the island.

Josh and Fergie shunned the hotel restaurant in favour of a private barbecue served by their own butler at their villa. Fergie nibbled at grilled crayfish, before succumbing to a late-night attack of the munchies and ordering pasta from room service at 2am.

She was feeling more energetic the next day, grabbing a paddle as the couple took a canoe out
on the water. Josh seemed happy to let her take the strain while he merrily took snaps for the family album.

The two had been dating for four years before getting hitched, having met when The Black Eyed Peas appeared in an episode of Josh’s hit TV show Las Vegas. The romantic LA wedding had an all-white theme with Fergie – real name Stacy Ann Ferguson – and Josh exchanging vows under magnolia trees. There was tight security, with guests receiving details of the venue at the last minute.

Fergie’s mother Terri Jackson let slip some of the details, however. ‘Kid Rock was there, with rapping,’ she said. ‘It was an amazing show.  It would cost you a fortune to see a show like that.
