In his surprising tell-all interview with Howard Stern about his separation from his wife of 11 years Courteney Cox-Arquette, actor David Arquette also shared how they broke the news of the break-up to their daughter Coco, 6.
We went to a beach and had a picnic. [I] explained to her that we’re grownups, and a lot of the time when grownups are growing up, they need to figure out their lives. … Sometimes that takes each other having a little space.
She said, ‘Are you guys getting a divorce?’ I said, ‘No, We’re not getting a divorce, we’re just taking some time apart to get to know ourselves better and get to know what we want out of our mate better.'”
David and Courteney announced their separation earlier this week.
