Superstar Josh Duhamel was hours away from walking down the aisle to marry former pageant queen Audra Mari when he had to be rushed to the emergency room after he had a bit too much fun dancing the night before.

The 28-year-old model said the 49-year-old actor was partying the night before the couple’s big day where he ended up “pulling some wild dance moves” and threw his back out, Vogue Australia reported, per Page Six in a piece published Wednesday.

Mari told the outlet that Duhamel had ended up slipping a disc. But the wedding was still on after the “When In Rome” star and his spouse said, “Cue the cortisone shot, and let’s get married!”

The Miss World America winner said that by the time the couple vowed to love, honor and cherish each other at their ceremony in North Dakota, the medicine kicked in and Duhamel was able to dance with his bride after they were officially wed for their first dance as a married couple.

“It was the most important thing for us,” Marie told Vogue. “Not only is it home to us, but it was so convenient for everyone we love to get to.”

“I guess the romantic in me always feels like we’re just two small-town kids from North Dakota who found each other in Los Angeles,” she added. “But we will always always be home, no matter where we are in the world.”

The “Safe Haven” star and Mari were introduced in 2019. Two years later, the “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!” star proposed to Mari on the beach with a message in a bottle.

“I cried, he cried — I’m not sure I even answered his question, I was in such shock!” Mari told the outlet. “He stared at me a little bit longer and said, ‘Well … ?’ And I looked at him and laughed and said, ‘Well, duh!’ It was the easiest ‘yes’ there ever was.”

The marriage is Duhamel’s second one and Mari’s first. The former soap opera star was married to superstar singer Fergie, from 2017 to 2019. The two share a 9-year-old son together.
