Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli split in 2013. They now take family trips together with their daughters and significant others.

Facinelli told LaPalme Magazine, “Once a break-up happens you need to go through the healing process first. Love is blind and hindsight is 20/20,” adding, “People come into your life for a reason and relationships can change and just because we aren’t living together, doesn’t mean you can’t love each other. I think once there was a time where we had to learn that we had to be able to move forward with love and respect.”  


Federline opened up about coParenting sons Sean, 11 and Jayden, 10 with Britney Spears, telling Bravo’s Personal Space. “I’m used to not having all my kids [on Father’s Day], and this is gonna be one of those years. When you are coParenting, you have to be willing to give up some of the things you would really like to do.”


The actress spoke with Momtastic about coParenting with ex Ryan Dorsey.  “It’s always going to have its challenges logistically, but Josey is our priority. We’re his parents,” she says. “If everybody looks at it that way, it alleviates some of the drama. Doing what’s best for Josey is really what it all boils down to.”


coParenting 4-year-old daughter Marlowe with ex Tom Sturridge is going well for Sienna Miller. She tells Harper’s Bazaar. “I think in a break-up somebody has to be a little bit cruel in order for it to be traditional, but it’s not been acrimonious in a way where you would choose to not be around that person. We don’t live together, as has been reported recently, but we do half the time. It’s great for our daughter that she has two parents who love each other and are friends.”


In 2016, Barrymore told Entertainment Tonight her secret to successful coParenting. “Plans. Constant plans. We, as a family have three dates for this Halloween.”


Garner spoke to TODAY in 2016 about coParenting with Affleck. “Ben was working in London, on Justice League, and I felt like, ‘Well, the kids should have that experience.’ And he and I are great friends, and we just all went en masse.”


The actress, who is raising her son Walker with ex-husband Taye Diggs, tells People, “Your child comes first, that’s all. It’s all about that. He comes first and you have to get past your own egos and you never talk bad about each other.”


“We both realize that we’re parents and we’re in it for our kid, and that’s made it really easy,” Wentz tells Watch What Happens Live. The couple coParent son Bronx Mowgli. “She’s an awesome mom and we get along really well when it comes to our kid now.” 


“Luckily I’ve been blessed to share this experience with someone I really admire and have so much respect for. And I think the feeling is mutual,” he told People, regarding coParenting his twins Monroe and Moroccan with Mariah Carey. “At the end of the day, you’ve got to be a little selfless. You have to say ‘It’s not about us. This didn’t work out quite how we wanted it to but look at the amazing blessing that we have in these wonderful children.’ So you kinda put everything else to the side and really focus.”
