Josh reportedly wanted to have babies after his first date with Fergie. Despite little sleep and lots of limelight, Josh is keeping the humor alive. In a recent interview with PEOPLE Magazine, he speculates about the origin of push presents: “You got Christmas, you got birthdays, you got Valentine’s, you got Mother’s Day, you got every other thing in between … I don’t know who came up with this push present idea, but I think it’s probably a female.”
