These Celebrity Ex-Couples May Have Failed Their Marriages But Not In Co-Parenting

They say parenting is hard, but co-parenting with a former lover is probably even harder, and this seems to be a norm in Hollywood. In a place where marriage only lasts for a short while, raising a kid together despite being separated has become the former celebrity couples’ priority. You can ask Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck about that. After ending their more than a decade of marriage, they remain amicable and raise their kids—even if they are no longer together. Sure, we can give them all the credits for that, but several celebrities do the same.

They all prioritize co-parenting for the sake of their children, cooperating with a former lover, no matter how hard it is. Imagine seeing someone casually after crying a pool of tears following your breakup. It is hard, isn’t it? As parents, they know they have to make major sacrifices for their children, and this is a part of it. No matter what happened to their romance, they always have to put their kids first. Meet these commendable celebrity ex-couples who may have failed their marriages but not in co-parenting.

Berry Gordy & Diana Ross

Originally a member of the highly successful singing group The Supremes, Diana Ross went on to enjoy a profitable solo career. Before stealing the spotlight, she began a relationship with Motown founder Berry Gordy. It lasted several years, and they welcomed their child, Rhonda Suzanne, in 1971. The two were never married, and Diana followed her heart and tied the knot with music executive Robert Ellis Silberstein, who raised Rhonda as his own.

Rhonda followed in her mom’s footsteps. She became a singer, a songwriter, and a public speaker. She even performed as an opening act in her mother’s concert tour in 2013. Until today, she still partners with her superstar mom in their music investments, including the 32-day summer tour held in Las Vegas and other cities. She is now married to fellow musician Rodney Kendrick, with whom she has a child.
