Celebrity marriages are often complicated because the partners are always in the public eye, and there have been cases that public opinion began to seep into the relationship, causing it to crumble on all sides. It takes special dedication and perseverance for a famous couple to keep their relationship away from the media and live low-key lives the best way they can.
Meanwhile, there are some celebrity couples who split up for numerous reasons but have managed to become incredible co-parents. These ex-lovers make co-parenting look fun and amazing, and all this usually stems from either party choosing to put their kids first before anything.
From Hollywood to the acting and music industries, many fan-favorites are crushing co-parenting on every side, and their kids would no doubt be lucky and happy to have parents who love and support them despite their failed marriage.
Keep reading below to find out which celebrity lovers are on the list of best co-parents of all time.
Orlando Bloom & Miranda Kerr
This once loved-up couple decided to end their marriage in 2016, and they shared a son, Flynn Christopher. Although they have moved on to other partners and had children— Bloom has another child with Katy Perry, while Kerr has two more children with her husband, Evan Spiegel, the ex-couple is still very cordial when it comes to co-parenting.
To make things more interesting, Kerr and Perry are very close friends, so they have no problems when it comes to managing the model’s son and singer’s soon-to-be step-son. It’s one of the most amazing to things that fans get to witness such a beautiful and wholesome family.
Despite the fact that Bloom and Kerr have gone on to have different families with new lovers, they exhibit a high and amazing level of attention towards the child they share, who’s now nine years old. It’s safe to assume that on both sides, Flynn has an incredible family to look after him and give him the best out of life.
Kudos to Bloom and Kerr for not letting their failed marriage come in the way of raising such a beautiful, strong, and unique child-like Flynn.
Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner
This is one of the few Hollywood lovers that crushed the internet with the news of their divorce but are still managing to crush their fans with their mind-blowing and remarkable co-parenting skills.
When it comes to these actors, they have different ways and doctrines on how a child should be raised, but for the sake of their children, Violet, Samuel, and Seraphina, they agreed to meet in the middle and run this co-parenting phase as smoothly as possible.
Speaking to Today.com in November 17 about how he and Garner manage to remain cordial and execute appropriate behaviors especially when their kids are concerned, “The Flash” actor said; You have to be on the same page. You have to co-operate. If you recognize that you both have the best interest of the kids at heart, it’s quite a special connection. We’re the only two people in the world who care this much about these three kids.”
No doubt, Affleck and Garner may not have been great spouses, but they are awesome parents.
Robin Thicke & Paula Patton
Not all celebrity divorces go through a smooth process, and singer, Robin Thicke and actress Paula Patton are perfect examples. The pair finalized their divorce in 2015, after being married for about nine years.
Thicke was 14 years old at an under-21 hip-hop club in 1991, when he met then 16-year-old Patton. He summoned the courage to ask her for a dance, and the rest is history. The pair got married in 2005 and welcomed a son in April 2010.
According to reports, the ex-couple were separated in February 2014, and later on, Patton filed for divorce, citing alleged drug use and abuse, and infidelity. The “Lost Without You” singer told Extra in March 2021 that at the time of his divorce from Patton, they could not reason with one another.
For the sake of their kid, they opted for co-parenting therapy, and found the perfect way to communicate with one another. Now, they are enjoying co-parenting— the ups and downs that come with it too.
Scott Disick & Kourtney Kardashian
The Kardashian family is habitually associated with drama and chaos in the media, but despite this family tag that they have carried through the years, Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian always put their children’s interests first as parents.
Although the pair were never engaged or married, they are focusing on raising their kids to become amazing people in the future. In the past, Disick and Kardashian called out one another for mistakes or perceived behaviors, however, when it comes to making decisions about their kids, they’re always on board with one another.
The pair engaged in a long-standing on-and-off relationship that did not seem to pan out for them, but in spite of their emotional failures, they are incredible parents to Mason Dash, Penelope Scotland, and Reign Aston Disick.
