The pair then reportedly stopped by Duffy’s, a local tavern, for food and drinks, the outlet reported.

Duhamel began dating Mari in 2019 following his divorce from Fergie. The “Big Girls Don’t Cry” singer, 47, filed for divorce in late May 2019, nearly two years after she and the actor announced their breakup in a joint statement in September 2017.

The Transformers star then revealed he was engaged to Mari on Instagram with a photo of the couple posing by the beach in January 2022. “It’s on!! She found a message in a bottle that washed ashore and said YES!! @audramari,” the actor captioned the shot of the pair smiling, while he held up a handwritten letter that read: “Audra Diane Mari Will You Marry Me?”

In May 2022, Duhamel chatted with PEOPLE about his upcoming wedding day at The Thing About Pam’s For Your Consideration event in Hollywood, explaining at the time that he and his then-fiancée were “in full prep mode.”

When asked if he was enjoying the process, he explained that because he had been busy working, Mari had taken the reins.

“Thankfully she’s really good at it,” he said. “I’m there to sort of answer questions or if she’s got questions about something.”

Duhamel also explained that when it came to the details, he had minimal requests.

“Most of the stuff I don’t care about,” he shared. “I just want there to be great music, I want to have people around that we love, and I want be present. I want to make sure that when the night comes, I don’t want to be overcome by the moment. I just want to be present and have a great time.”
