After their breakup, Gavin said he was "trying to be a really good dad," and he continues to be so. 

He admitted that during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it was very difficult as he had to be apart from them more than usual. 

Talking to Trunk Nation, he said: "I did the first two weeks with them, then they went to Oklahoma. They're on a 10,000 acre ranch. It's okay for now and that is a real big dilemma for parents with split custody.

"You're more mindful of like, I know who's around me – no one. And I know who's bringing me the corona – no one is.

"But you send your kids out to someone else and they come back to you, and now you're prone to whoever they're with. It's a tricky one for all divorced parents."
