The ‘Twilight’ star and his ex Jennie Garth, who split in Mach after 11 years together, are focused on co-parenting their three daughters amid a public divorce and hectic schedules.

Peter Facinelli is well known for his character Carlisle Cullenthe Cullen family patriarch in the Twilight movie franchise. But in real life, his three kids with ex-wife Jennie Garth are his top priority.

The couple split in March after 11 years of marriage, and are now working to co-parent their three kids Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, together.

“When you’re going through [co-parenting] yourself, you have to take it day by day,” Peter told People on Oct. 11.

But he said he loves the quality time he gets to spend with his daughters.

“I take the girls RV-ing all the time,” Peter said. “There’s a lot of s’mores-making and singing by the campfire.”

“It’s something about being in the woods,” he added. “It slows everything down and you’re a part of nature and just spending time with your family. It’s pretty great.”

Jennie told the magazine that she and her ex are “great parents together,” even if they aren’t married anymore. And Peter agrees.

“Co-parenting takes two great parents to put their differences aside and focus on the children,” Peter said, “and that’s what I’ve been doing.”

What do YOU think of Peter and Jenni co-parenting HollyMoms?

The only difference is that on the ‘field trips’ with his daughters he now can take the new younger woman in his life which gives him the best of both worlds. How nice for him! Forget it that he emotionally and physically devastated the prior girl he promised to love, honor and cherish. He and many men like him made the decision to not follow through with the mundane aspects of the ‘married with children’ lives (that was entered mutually by the way) – midway he bails. More often leaving the wife and subsequently the children to fend for themselves. Fortunately for Jennie Garth she has or had her own money so survival won’t be financial (or will it?). She stayed home with children for years.

Coming out as a BOOK next year!! Stephenie Meyer and her Army of Desperate Housewives: The Twilight Saga Exposed – How many OLDER Twihards became MORE obsessed than YOUNGER ones and RUINED this pretty fairytale for them! Blame Stephenie Meyer’s publisher and production company for their professional negligence in accepting and presenting Twilight SO IRRESPONSIBLY with SUCH an addictive, amateur “writing style” AND storyline. PETITION!! Search “research twilight breaking dawn” for blogspot called: explaintwilightbreakingdawnending.

This is to Jennie – I remember you like it was yesterday, I was sixteen when 90210 struck gold. And you are the most beautiful woman in the world and we all worshipped you, wanted to dress like you, wanted to be you. Don’t forget that you were huge and still are in our hearts. The idea that a man could want more than you is unfathonable to majority of the people who know you. It is unbelievable to me. It is like Helen of Troy being abandoned by someone. You don’t have to change yourself because you are already perfect. You always look good, you always look stunning. And I tell you he is the one that is seriously lost out. Please remember this because all of us girls when we were sixteen remember you and you are truly loved by all of us and we don’t want you to ever feel like you have to change for some guy that got a big ego over a movie deal (with a 2-bit part). You’re the real star, way before him, you are the leading lady, may you find your leading man:-)
