Ben and Jennifer's divorce was finalised in late 2018 even though the pair separated in 2015. Continuing to co-parent their kids Violet, Seraphina and Samuel -  the pair remain on good speaking terms and are often spotted out and about together.

"I certainly try very hard. I'm lucky they've got a great mom, and she helps out a great deal with making sure that we co-parent in as good a way as possible…that's really the central preoccupation in my life, you know, the focus of my life is what I love doing. It's what makes me happy and the rest of the stuff kind of follows,” he continued.

Well, that's sweet to hear.
