Ryan Phillippe is very ‘proud’ of how he and ex-wife Reese Witherspoon manage their parenting duties. 

The pair were married for 8 years, and have two children together- Ava, 15 and Deacon, 10.

Phillipe told HuffPost Live! that co-parenting with Witherspoon is a “feeling out process.”

“I think we’ve gotten to a really great place,” he continued. “It’s going well, and she’s happy and remarried and our kids are incredible. I’m proud of the way we’ve handled it and who our little people are.”

The former couple even spend time together with their children as a family, with Ryan revealing “She was just in New York doing press for Gone Girl and Wild and we got to meet up as a family”

“We took a walk through Central Park with the kids, and it was funny- we were reminiscing then because we shot a lot of Cruel Intentions there, so there we were with Ava and Deacon talking, and they were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds.”

Have you taken your kids down memory lane?

  • that is nice that they have always seemed to have gotten along for their kids. it was a shame that they didn’t stay together though


  • It’s great they deal with the situation with such maturity.


  • that is so lovely to hear. thanks for sharing


  • The kids like to talk about when they were babies n how they don’t remember it


  • that is fantastic if only all splits worked this well


  • Nice to see civility & common sense after a separation.


  • great that they can put their differences aside!


  • Good on them! I wish more parents thought about their kids instead of just trying to hurt each other in divorce.


  • BEST WISHES TO : Ryan, Reese and family.
    My son has an amazing memory and often brings stories up we have forgotten.


  • How great that they co parent so well together. Yes, my kids love hearing old stories about mum and dad.


  • my kids are just getting to an age where they love hearing stories of “when you were a little girl mum” and telling them how i used to go to school or where we lived what toys i had etc.
    Great to see the parents have worked out a great team effort on raising their kids even though they are separated as often you see or hear horrible experiences for kids from broken marriages


  • Always. My son loves to hear some stories/memories of Mum and Dad. But sometimes we hear from him… enough with the old stories!
