Transformers: The Last Knight star Josh Duhamel covers the latest issue of Haute Living and opens up about family life with wife, Grammy Award-winning singer Fergie, and their 3-year-old son Axl.

On the secret to their happy marriage: “We genuinely like each other and have a lot of love for our son, and have a good time together. And that’s about it.”

On posting on social media: “I have sort of a love/hate relationship with social media. I’m constantly struggling with what to post and what not to post because I am a pretty private guy and I like to keep it that way. But at the same time… the studios place a lot of value on that and it helps you to get jobs. I just try to do it as responsibly and un-invasively as I can, so I don’t feel like I’m selling my soul every time I post something.”

On his heartthrob status: “I don’t know if I even was a sex symbol. Maybe when I was younger, but I don’t know. I don’t feel so much of that anymore. I’m playing the dad of a 17-year-old kid. I’m that guy now. I don’t really look at myself as that. It’s all fleeting.”

On his favorite childhood memory at the family cabin with his father: “It was early in the spring and the water was still cold, but it was a beautiful day and it was hot out. I had this dock in the water—I was like, ‘I’m jumping in!’ I’d had the place for about a year and hadn’t got in water yet. But we’d just put this new dock in, so I stripped down to my underwear, and I was like, ‘Whoo whoo whoo!’ and my dad was like, ‘Be a brave soul!’ I was like, ‘Yeah, be a brave soul.’ That’s stuck with me ever since and I think of it often. ‘Be a brave soul.’”
