Nine months after Fergie and Josh Duhamel tied the knot on January 10, 2009, rumors hit the tabloids alleging that Duhamel had a one-night stand with a stripper. Today, the couple explained how that rocky period strengthened their marriage on Oprah's Next Chapter.
"We went to therapy," Fergie said when asked if the couple ever thought of breaking up. "The whole thing just became a positive for us ... Our marriage today -- I couldn't ask for anything more."
Duhamel expressed similar sentiments later in the interview.
"Now, I'm actually happy that all that happened, because we wouldn't be as strong as we are now," said Josh, who has admitted to visiting a strip club, but has always denied the cheating claims.
"As much anger as a carried about it before, I'm actually thankful that it did happen, because in a lot of ways it made me straighten my ass out," the former Las Vegas star continued.
With those dark times behind them, Fergie and Duhamel seem to be looking toward the future which could include kids.
"Two is our number. We negotiated that early on," Fergie said when asked if they wanted a lot of kids. "He told me he wanted five and I said, 'I'm not going any higher than two.'"
The entire interview aired Sunday night at 9/8c on OWN. Watch the clip below.
