Busting a move busted his back.
Josh Duhamel was rushed to the emergency room mere hours before he married wife Audra Mari earlier this month.
The former pageant queen, 28, told Vogue Australia on Wednesday that the “Transformers” star, 49, threw his back out after “pulling some wild dance moves” on a party bus the night before the big day.
The morning of the wedding, doctors discovered Duhamel had slipped a disc, but the “Safe Haven” star and his spouse just said, “Cue the cortisone shot, and let’s get married!”
By the time Duhamel and Mari wed, the former soap star was feeling much better and was even able to dance alongside his bride for their first dance to Jordan Davis’ “Buy Dirt.”
The couple decided to get married in North Dakota since that is their home state.
“It was the most important thing for us,” Marie told Vogue Australia. “Not only is it home to us, but it was so convenient for everyone we love to get to.
“I guess the romantic in me always feels like we’re just two small-town kids from North Dakota who found each other in Los Angeles. But we will always always be home, no matter where we are in the world.”
Duhamel and Mari were introduced by a mutual friend in Los Angeles in March 2019.
Almost two years later, the “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!” star asked the former Miss World America to marry him with a message in a bottle at a beachfront proposal.
“I cried, he cried—I’m not sure I even answered his question, I was in such shock!” Mari said of her engagement. “He stared at me a little bit longer and said, “Well…?” And I looked at him and laughed and said, “Well, duh!”. It was the easiest ‘yes’ there ever was.”
This is Mari’s first marriage, but Duhamel was previously married to Fergie, from 2017 to 2019. They share 9-year-old son Axl.
