After a few ups and downs over the years, it seems Denise Richards and her ex Charlie Sheen have managed to find a way to successfully co-parent their girls Sam and Lola – and have become better friends in the process.
“It’s our ‘Modern Family,’ I suppose,” Denise tells Access Hollywood, adding, “We’ve actually become like brother and sister, we really have. We’ve become very, very good friends…. When we all spend time together, it’s great for the kids and for us too. We actually get along.”
The mom-of-three – she adopted daughter Eloise last year – reveals the secret to their success: “I think [the key is] making it about the kids. The stuff between the couple – if you’re divorced – it’s no longer about you anymore,” she muses. “You have to be the bigger person and make it about the kids and so that’s what we’re doing.”
Proving her point, Denise and Charlie and the kids were spotted arriving back home after a family getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico earlier this week.
