Josh Duhamel, Audra Mari dress as Anna Nicole Smith, husband for Halloween




They have jokes.

Josh Duhamel, 49, and Audra Mari, 28, used their hilarious Halloween couple costume to hit back at haters who criticized their age gap.

The newlyweds channeled the late Anna Nicole Smith and husband J. Howard Marshall as they attended the Casamigos Halloween party in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday night.

Mari looked just like the iconic Playboy model – who was 26 when she said ‘I do’ to her then 89-year-old oil mogul husband – in a stunning black dress and voluminous blonde hair.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Duhamel has poked fun at the age gap between him and Mari. During a recent appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” the actor recalled having to go to the ER for a back injury following their nuptials.

“The next morning, after the wedding, [I] couldn’t get out of bed anymore,” said Duhamel, who was previously married to Fergie, noting that his new wife said nervously, “’Oh my God. Everything’s going good here. It’s, like, the first day of my wedding, and I’m walking my husband around in a wheelchair.’ »

Duhamel, who is 21 years older than Mari, added: “I am already much older than her. It wasn’t a good start, but I was like, ‘Baby, for better or for worse.’ »

The couple first sparked romance rumors when they were pictured kissing at a Toronto airport in 2019, amid the ‘Transformers’ star’s split from the ‘Black Eyed Peas’ hitmaker “.

They confirmed their romance in early 2020 and tied the knot in Mari’s hometown of Fargo, North Dakota in September.

Duhamel continues to co-parent his son Axl, 9, with his ex Fergie.
