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 Cullen, the 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.”
