Josh Duhamel is preparing for the worst, but hoping for the best.

The “Shotgun Wedding” star has been switching out the Hollywood hills for something a little more tranquil — a cabin estate in the woods.

And according to him, life in the wilderness has equipped him to be prepared for whatever life throws at him.

“I’ve become a bit of a doomsday prepper, I guess,” Duhamel told Inverse. “I’m building something so if things do go south, I have a place to take my family.”

The 50-year-old said he’s learning how to fish to be able to catch his own dinner, and is polishing up on his hunting skills.

At first, the estate he owns included “one little cabin in the woods with no electricity and no water,” he told the outlet.

But when the property next door hit the market, he felt obliged to buy it.

“I have a tractor. I have a skid steer. I’m changing tires. I’m changing oil. I’m fixing things. I’m moving dirt, I’m popping rocks,” he said of his estate.

“We shaped the land. We created trails through it. I’m actually growing crops out there. This year I’m gonna grow pumpkins and corn.”

The actor, who is married to model Audra Mari, clarified that his desire to learn off-the-grid skills was birthed in case “s–t hits the fan” back home.

“I have this crazy fixation on what happens if s–t hits the fan in LA and I have to take my family out there and live off the land,” he shared.

“I believe that we could live off the land out there. I’m not very good at it yet, but I’m getting there.”

Duhamel shares 9-year-old son Axl with his ex-wife Fergie, to whom he was married from 2009 until 2019.

He tied the knot with 29-year-old Mari last year in a stunning North Dakota wedding.

The former pageant queen and the “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” actor started dating in 2018, after the latter split from Black Eyed Pea songstress, 48, in 2017.

Duhamel remains on good terms with Fergie, and she even congratulated her ex-husband on his engagement.
