16 Celeb Exes Who Actually Do Co-Parenting Right


Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs split up in 2014 after an 11-year marriage and having welcomed a son into the world, eight-year-old Walker Nathaniel. There’s no bad blood between them, though. Diggs told PEOPLE, “We were friends to start out with, but especially when you have a kid in the mix, there’s no time for any negativity.” He explained that his son is foremost objective, something that Menzel agrees with.

“Your child comes first, that’s all,” she said in an interview with PEOPLE Now. “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.” In an interview with US Weekly, the actor said that he and his ex-wife trust each other when it comes to raising their son. “I mean, it’s not even about trust. We both love our son so much, that the best way to raise him is to provide him with whatever we can…”


Jennifer Lopez told PEOPLE that she would never start up another romance with ex Marc Anthony again because their current relationship as best friends works best when it comes to taking care of their kids. In an interview with HuffPost Live, the entertainer said, “I feel it’s my responsibility as a mom when their dad is not there to let them know that their dad loves them very much because that’s the doubt that they have when he’s not around or they haven’t seen him. That’s my job to do that the same way it’s his job when he’s with them to say ‘Mommy is working and she loves you.'”

Lopez said she understands that while she and Anthony are no longer married, he’s still the father of their kids, and she has to make things work for their kids. “And that is, by far, the hardest work I do,” she added.
