Peter Facinelli is finally speaking out about his divorce from Jennie Garth. The actor co-hosted Live with Kelly! on April 4 and said that he’s tried to remain quiet about the split but it’s been difficult.

“I’ve tried to stay really quiet about it for the sake of the kids,” he continues. “But Jen and I are doing well and she’ll always be in my life. And I love her. We’re just gonna have a different relationship. We are very dedicated to being great parents.”
