The TV star has revealed that the couple, who ended their 16 year relationship earlier this year, continue to live together, despite the fact that Dominic has a new girlfriend.
Susanna Reid still lives with ex-partner Dominic Cotton for the sake of their sons
"We still get on so well, Dom is such a hands-on dad and we really co-parent," Suzanna told The Sun's Fabulous magazine.
"So we live separately but together and happily in the same house. I'm not saying that everyone can do it (and) I definitely think people are surprised that we can do it this way."
She added, "Obviously we've been through a bit since splitting up, because a separation is always going to be sad. But it's nice for the children that they know Mum and Dad are still there.
"I'm privileged to have a great relationship with my ex, to the point where we can still live together comfortably and he can have a new relationship."
Susanna Reid was a runner-up on the 11th series of Strictly Come Dancing
Susanna and Dominic broke up in February following her successful appearance on Strictly Come Dancing. At the time, she was also spending a great deal of time travelling from London to Salford to present BBC Breakfast.
The 43-year-old said it was impossible to blame her devotion to Strictly and her job totally for the split.
"Over 16 years you're going to change a bit, both of you," she said.
"We have a different relationship (now), which is good. There have been feelings hurt along the way, obviously, but Dom and I had a takeaway together last night, a good chat, and he's a great friend of mine. You don't throw away 16 years."
