Despite her divorce from Chris, the stars have remained on good terms and work hard to ensure their children are their top priority. Last year, the actress opened up about the end of her marriage with the Coldplay musician, admitting she was proud of their relationship as co-parents. "As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that’s quite tough on a personal level," the Hollywood star told Page Six, adding, "It's a commitment I make every day to my children and their father even though we're not in a romantic relationship."
