“He just had his first steps [on] August 12th,” Fergie, gushed in an interview with Us Weekly. “I was shocked! He climbed up the stairs and he climbed back down. I was helping him back down and he got up the stairs and he [stretched out his arms] and came to me!”

Fergie, 39 clearly couldn’t be prouder: “It was exhilarating! I just thought, ‘Did my son just walk?'”

Unfortunately for daddy Josh Duhamel, 41, he missed out on witnessing the first steps. “He was at work. I felt so bad! But you know, we’re both working parents so each of us are going to get different gifts.”

Fergie also revealed to US talk show host Chelsea Handler that her son is a fan of French kissing his mum! Speaking on chat show Chelsea Lately where she revealed: “My son likes to French kiss me a lot. It’s so delicious! He goes in for the kill, but I’ll have to cut that off at a certain age, or else that’ll be weird.”
