Yesterday was Father’s Day. How did you spend it? Nope, I don’t want to hear it. Because unless you spent it in the presence of Josh Duhamel and Fergie’s adorable baby son Axl Jack, it’s not worth talking about. So go ahead and keep that to yourself. And while you’re doing that, gaze upon the above Instagram photo Josh shared yesterday in honor of his first Father’s Day as a dad. Then maybe we can work together to figure out how a baby that ridiculously cute is even possible.
Josh captioned the photo, “Proud to be this kid’s dad. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.” Well yeah, I’d be proud to be that kid’s dad too. Who wouldn’t want to take credit for that level of adorable? Maxwell Drew better watch her back, because it looks like Axl is angling for the title of Cutest Celebrity Baby. Max is already old enough to drive her own car; eventually she’ll have to pass the torch to somebody else, and I vote Axl.
The thing that I find so amazing about this kid, in addition to looking like he walked out of the pages of Baby Vogue, is how much he resembles both his parents. Usually I see babies, even older ones, and they just look like random children. Cute ones, of course, but just babies. When people go, “Aww, he has his mommy’s eyes,” I’m convinced they’re either lying or hallucinating. “Oh yeah, absolutely, I can totally see it,” I nod along, squinting or covering one eye or looking from a different angle to try and find the resemblance. But this time it’s different, because Axl does have his mommy’s eyes, and I can totally see that. And he has his dad’s nose, and maybe even his smile too.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go call the police, because there’s no way a baby this cute can be legal.
