“I want to have more kids in the next few years. So it’s more about finding someone young enough to have kids,” the Safe Haven star, 46, said on the Thursday, December 20, episode of Dax Shepard’s “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?”

Duhamel, who split from the former Black Eyed Peas singer, 43, in September 2017 after eight years of marriage, added that the exes were once very in love. “Ferg and I had a great relationship. I love that girl and I always will. Unfortunately we didn’t work, but I will always have her back and she is the mother of my baby,” he gushed. “She’s awesome. So I’m just trying to find somebody. That’s kind of what I’m looking for.”

Although Duhamel is eager to find love again, he’s enjoying spending quality time with Axl, 5, and teaching him about the environment. “He’s really learning to love nature,” the Transformers actor exclusively told Us of his little one earlier this month. “[He] loves this earth. It’s important to him just to appreciate frogs, turtles, birds, trees and lakes [and] being outside.”
