There's no way around it: Josh Duhamel's marriage to Audra Mari got off to a rocky start.
The actor previously acknowledged that he was in the emergency room the morning of his September wedding after an evening of partying a little too hard. He's now revealing that he was in the hospital the day after the nuptials, too.
"The next morning, after the wedding, [I] couldn't get out of bed again," the "Safe Haven" star, 49, told Kelly Clarkson on her eponymous talk show. In thinking back to his new wife's thoughts that morning, he recalled her saying, "'Oh my God. Everything is fine here. This is, like, the first day of my marriage, and I'm wheeling my husband around in a wheelchair.'"
Citing their 21-year-old age difference, Josh joked, "I'm already way older than she is. It wasn't a great start, but I was like, 'Babe, for better or worse.'"
The "Transformers" actor confirmed that his party bus antics sparked the pain.
"They have those handles that you hold on in the party bus — I tried to do this thing like a gymnast, like, straighten myself out," he said, while extending out his leg. "So, I felt fine. I got through that night, and I wake up the next morning, two hours before the wedding, and I couldn't get out of bed. I literally couldn't stand up."
Shortly after his hospital visit, Josh was standing at the altar drugged up on the anti-inflammatory medication Toradol.
"It was great, everything was great," he said. " I got through the night, danced the night away."
Josh's pain eventually subsided and he and Audra honeymooned in Thailand.
