"He is a great dad and I feel really lucky to have him in my life," Miranda, 30, said with a smile. "I think it's really important to have two happy parents and he is really happy and I am happy."
Miranda recently brought up the subject of happiness in an interview with British GQ. "I'm dating. I'm loving it," she said. "Two happy parents are better than two unhappy parents. This is my time to explore and have some fun. I'm not looking to fall in love again quickly."
Orlando, 37, has been no less effusive in his praise of Miranda since they announced the end of their three year marriage in October. He has spoken on a number of occasions about the connection the couple still share.
"It's ever evolving, but I've said to her, 'We are going to be in each other's lives for the rest of our lives and we have a child, so it's important to me that we respect each other as we always have and that Flynn feels that and understands that'," he told The Times Magazine.
"There's a deep love between us."
Most recently, he graciously acknowledged his ex while receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with little Flynn by his side, thanking her for giving him the "greatest gift of all" - their son.
