Josh Duhamel wants to keep the relationship with his new girlfriend Eiza Gonzalez a secret. However, the actor is not doing this out of paparazzi scare or to maintain control over his life. If sources are to be believed, Josh is keeping his romance hush-hush for the sake of his ex-wife, Fergie.
This is what an insider told the popular entertainment outfit ET:
Josh actually fell for Eiza about six months ago and asked a mutual friend to introduce them. They had secretly been talking for months. 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.

Duhamel and his ex-wife Fergie separated last September after being married for 8 years. The couple is parents to a 4-year-old son, Axl.
ET also quoted the source as saying that Duhamel and Eiza were not dating or seeing one another before Josh and Fergie parted ways.
The source said,
He and Fergie had announced their separation before he started seeing Eiza. This couple has worked to separate amicably and so far it seems to be working. Josh is ready to move on and he seems very smitten with Eiza.
As for the reason of their divorce, ET quotes the source as saying that it had to do with their demands of different lifestyles. While Fergie wanted a Hollywood life Josh turned out to be the homely one wanting to shun the public eye.

Fergie loves her career and the fast-paced life of Hollywood and being in the public eye. Josh is a little more low-key and wanted more of a home and family life.
Duhamel, whose most recent work includes Love, Simon, had earlier spoken to the publication about co-parenting his son.
