Being a parent is not the easiest thing in the world. Especially when you’re a Hollywood celebrity who’s divorced. It can be hard enough to take care of kids and make sure everyone feels loved and cared for when you live together in a happy marriage, but once you’re divorced or separated it’s a whole new level of commitment. Yet there are some celebs who manage to coparent like pros and make it look manageable and relatively easy. Let’s take a look at these legends and find out how they do it, shall we?
1. Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have been together for what seems like forever, so when they announced they’re splitting up it came as a shock to everyone. They seemed like such a perfect and happy family. It just goes to tell that you never know what’s happening behind the scenes and just cause you see these celebs on the big screen you don’t really know them. However, it really looks like the split was amicable, mutual and not a sudden rash decision at all. In their joined statement they even mentioned that they still have a lot of love for each other and that they’re still think of themselves as a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to their daughter Everly.
2. Chris Pratt & Anna Faris
Stardom is a weird thing, it comes and goes and you never know how long it will last. When Chris Pratt and Anna Faris started dating everyone thought Anna was way out of his league. After all she was the better looking one and had a much more successful career than Chris did. But that changed in just a couple of years and suddenly Chris Pratt is a huge movie star. Who saw that coming? We don’t know what exactly happened and why they split up, maybe it was Pratt’s newfound fame that drew them apart, but they still have a kid together and they say that at the end of the day that’s what matters. Even though they’re no longer together they’re committed to making it work and make sure their little boy knows that he has two parents who love him very much.
3. Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were together for almost a decade when everything went south. No one saw this coming, Ben seemed so happy, Jennifer became everyone’s favorite Hollywood mom.

They don’t know what the future has for them in store but they prioritize their children and everything else comes second.
4. Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick
Kourtney and Scott’s relationship was always rather tumultuous yet they still managed to have 3 children together.

They’re constantly communicating, making adjustments as the kids are growing up and making sure their coparenting arrangement is going well.
5. Courteney Cox & David Arquette
Courtney Cox and David Arquette seemed like such an unlikely couple yet they were together for a little over a decade and have a kid together. Their divorce wasn’t the calmest one, yet they’ve always made sure to put aside their differences and work harder on coparenting for the sake of their daughter Coco.
6. Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
Gwyneth and Chris always had an air of Hollywood royalty about them. They were so prim and proper and put together that their break up came as a bit of a shock for everyone. Gwyneth admits that it was hard and they’ve been through a lot of difficulties, but they’ve always agreed on the fact that their children are a priority.
7. Ryan Phillippe & Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe seemed like such a perfect family. They looked great together on screen, and even better in real life with their kids. However it didn’t last forever, they did get a divorce in 2007. In spite of that they always supported each other, showed up for important events and made sure to make coparenting work as smoothly as possible. According to Ryan it was important for him to get to that point as a parent, divorced or not, that you no longer come first, your children do.
8. Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon
Mariah and Nick seemed always looked like picture perfect family. They always had a lot of family photos and their lifestyle seemed absolutely blissful.

10. Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa might not be the picture of family life, but they do try their best to coparent. Amber says she has pictures of herself and Wiz in her son’s room, so that he can see them together as a family even though they’ve separated. They also try their best to come together for family days so that their son feels like he has two parents who love him equally.
11. Marc Anthony & Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony really looked like a match made in heaven, so when the news of their divorce broke, many of their fans were devastated and shocked. But just because their relationship didn’t work out, it doesn’t mean they can just call it quits on their family. They have kids together and they always make sure to reassure them that they’re loved and cared for. Jennifer mentioned in one of her interviews that she always makes sure to let the kids know that their dad loves them, even when he’s not around. And Marc does the same when Jennifer is working.

Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes might no longer be together but they do have a kid and they make sure to take coparenting seriously.
