Check Out Your Favorite Celebrity’s Exes and Their Kids
Several celebrity couples have stood the test of time, but some celebrity couples have burned hot and flamed out of the public consciousness. Separation is painful enough, but when kids are involved, it becomes even more so. When a person’s lifestyle must change to accommodate someone else, certain people thrive while others struggle. Being married with children can become too much over time, and it is evident that celebrities are still just human.
Celebrities may have relationship problems as well, but for very different reasons. When you add in adoring fans, long-distance relationships, and various endeavors and investments, it’s no wonder that their view of truth can be affected. Yes, there are plenty of couples out there (even in Hollywood!) who understand that the secret to co-parenting is for parents to prioritize their child’s well-being over their own. After all, celebrity breakups are not always full of drama. From Michael Sheen and Kate Beckinsale to Adele and Simon Konecki, here are some former celebrity couples who seem to have worked out how to prioritize co-parenting for the sake of their children.
Michael Sheen & Kate Beckinsale
Michael Sheen is a Golden Globe-nominated actor who has appeared in several Hollywood blockbusters, including the Twilight franchise. Along his degree of notoriety is a string of heartaches, including the beautiful Kate Beckinsale. Many wonder what went wrong between them and why they didn’t marry. The couple first met during the filming of the 1995 film The Seagull and started dating soon after. The Hollywood couple was head over heels in love, with Beckinsale claiming that meeting Sheen changed her life dramatically.
Despite being in a romance for almost a decade and having a child together, the two never got married. In one of her interviews, Beckinsale revealed that her “single status” made her feel embarrassed at the time. Even after their separation, the couple has stayed close and remained on good terms throughout the years. In fact, they often share photos of themselves and their now 22-year-old daughter Lily.
Michael Douglas & Diandra Luker
Though we recognize him as the husband of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglas was married to Diandra Luker for 18 years. She met the actor while he was promoting his film One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Then 19 years old, Luker had no idea who Douglas was, but they struck up a talk that led to two days together and an engagement just two weeks later. They married in March 1977 and welcomed their boy, Cameron, the following year.
However, there was a rift between Douglas and Luker at some stage, and their relationship came crashing down on them. The pair split up in 1995, with Luker receiving a $45 million payout, some investments, and alimony. Despite their split, they were able to put their differences aside for Cameron. They are now proud grandparents to two kids, whom Cameron shares with Brazilian model Viviane Thibes.
Mel B & Eddie Murphy
He built a degree as one of the most defining comedians of the 80s for his groundbreaking stand-up comedy style. She was a member of a female group that influenced a generation with their rallying promises to put girl power in the spotlight. Melanie Brown and Eddie Murphy are two well-known public figures from the last four decades, but the two share a lot more than we realize. They dated for nearly a year and have a child together, but they have kept the particulars of their relationship under wraps.
Brown felt “blissed out” at the start of her relationship with Murphy and ready to start her life with the man she would later describe as a “homebody” who valued family. Their love resulted in the birth of Angel Iris Murphy Brown in 2007. Murphy had initially kept his joy hidden from the press, icily reacting to Brown’s pregnancy announcement by saying that he needed evidence that Angel was his. Angel grew up with Brown because she had sole custody, but Murphy is now making amends with the now-13-year-old Angel.
Mary Lee Harvey & Steve Harvey
Being married to a celebrity has both benefits and drawbacks. The benefits are usually more significant, mainly if you are not as well-known as Steve Harvey. Sadly, Mary Lee belongs to those whose lives changed dramatically due to their spouses’ degree of fame. Mary Lee met Steve when he was still performing as a stand-up comedian in Arlington, Texas. They hit it off right away and fell in love at first sight.
Their marriage went on for years, and they welcomed a son, Wynton Harvey, in 1997. Sadly, they had problems that resulted in their legal separation in 2005. They had a custody dispute over Wynton, who was eight years old, and in 2011, Steve won the fight and brought his son with him. Wynton is currently a student at Atlanta’s Savannah College of Art and Design. He is also a filmmaker and a fashion icon who has dabbled in modeling.
Martha & Andrew Stewart
Even though Martha’s enormous popularity has kept her name in the public eye for years, most people are probably unaware of Andrew Stewart’s existence. Andrew was earning his law degree at Yale when he met the professional model. The two were paired up on a blind date and fell in love at first glance. They dated for a year and tied the knot after. Andy is the “brains” behind Martha’s early career success, but their marriage was not as long-lasting and ended after 29 years.
The couple shares a child, Alexis Stewart. While she is best known as the daughter of a well-known entrepreneur, she has developed a separate name from her mother’s fame. Alexis is a former radio and television anchor best regarded for her shows Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer and Whatever, Martha. Alexis has remained out of the spotlight since her children’s birth, focusing on raising her kids.
Marie Osmond & Brian Blosil
Marie Osmond and Brian Blosil had been together for over 20 years and had seven children together, so their separation became a shock to fans. Their marriage lasted from 1986 to 2007 and seemed to last forever. Osmond is a pop culture phenomenon known for her music career, various acting credits, and her short stint on The Talk. Blosil, on the other hand, worked as a record producer and appeared in one short film and on a TV crew, but he remained out of the spotlight while his wife was a global celebrity. During their relationship, the couple had two biological children and adopted five more.
Even though Osmond devotes everything she has to her thriving career, she still makes time for her family, which is her top priority. The iconic actress is the proud mother of eight children, one of them is Jessica Marie Blosil, her eldest daughter. Jessica chose to live a more private life away from the spotlight throughout her mother’s legendary career. As she grew older, the brunette beauty chose a career path that was somewhat different from her mother’s.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were formerly one of the most famous couples in Hollywood. However, their marriage ended as fast as how it started. The two first met at the Teen Choice Awards in 2005, and he appeared in her music video for Bye, Bye three years later. They dated for a few weeks and shocked fans when they announced their marriage. After a series of turmoils, the couple officially separated in 2016.
Even though they are no longer together, they have attempted to establish some partnership for their twins, Moroccan and Monroe. Cannon and Carey are on the same page when it comes to raising their children, and they try to keep the twins out of the spotlight as much as possible. With the investments that they have, we are pretty sure that the twins have a bright future ahead of them.
Marco Garibaldi & Priscilla Presley
Although she will be forever associated with Elvis Presley, Priscilla Presley also had a long-time romance with Marco Garibaldi. The two met through a mutual friend sometime in 1984. Garibaldi and Presley dated and moved in together the following year. Their 22-year relationship ended in 2006, but they had a son, Navarone Garibaldi.
The guy is stunning proof of the couple’s former passion. Even though he isn’t Elvis’ biological son, he carries the rock star gene. He is the frontman of Them Guns, a cult classic rock band. They aren’t well-known, but they have played in some of America’s most prestigious rock venues like The Viper Room. Navarone outgrew living in the shadow of his famous mother and was able to carve out a name for himself, so he deserves a ton of credit. Although the talented musician isn’t attempting to be the next Elvis, his music is well worth hearing.
Marcia Harvey & Steve Harvey
Harvey’s first love, Marcia, is said to be the woman who came along when the world didn’t know as much about Steve Harvey as it does now. The two met at a mutual friend’s housewarming party, and cupid was there to support them. After dating for a few years, Marcia and Steve married in a small ceremony in front of their closest friends and relatives. The couple shared all of life’s small pleasures, first welcoming twin daughters and then a son.
Just like their famous father, his kids are carving their fame and investments. Karli is one of Steve’s twins. She is a gifted public speaker who mentors others through the Harvey and Marjorie Foundation. She’s also a television personality, having starred on shows including Black Love and Steve Harvey. Brandi, Karli’s twin, is the founder of Beyond Her and also hosts a podcast. Broderick, Steve’s third child, is a social media sensation with over 40,000 followers.
Maggie Johnson & Clint Eastwood
Award-winning actor Clint Eastwood has long wowed viewers with his enthralling roles in blockbusters such as Dirty Harry and Gran Torino. The actor’s love life, on the other hand, may rival his on-screen drama, spanning two marriages and many children. After meeting on a blind date, Eastwood, then 23 years old, married Maggie Johnson in 1953. Despite their many high points, their marriage was a tumultuous one. Their 30-year relationship blessed them with two kids, Kyle and Alison Eastwood.
The Eastwood family grew by one when his son Kyle was born on May 19, 1968. Over the years, the bassist has released many tracks, including From There to Here and The View From Here. Kyle has also contributed music to many of his father’s films, including Million Dollar Baby and Letter From Iwo Jima. Their second child, Alison, is a multi-talented actress who also models and dabbles in fashion design. While they are kids to a famous icon, they don’t rely on their father to succeed but it definitely helps to have that insurance.
Lisa Bonet & Lenny Kravitz
Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz happened to be one of the biggest Hollywood A-list couples. Bonet was already a bonafide celebrity when she met Kravitz, thanks to her role as Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Kravitz was a little-known struggling musician at the time. They proved to be the image of perfection when they were together. Sadly, they had split by 1991, and their legal separation came in 1993. Even though their marriage only lasted a few years, the two have still been highly close for the sake of their daughter, Zoe Kravitz.
Her family’s career investments helped her break into the industry at the age of eighteen when she played a supporting role in her first film, No Reservations. Since then, Zoe has starred in several notable films. Following her parents’ genes, she also pursued music, in addition to modeling and acting.
Liam Neeson & Natasha Richardson
Is it possible to fully overcome the loss of the love of your life? According to Liam Neeson, the response is no. He’s never gotten over Natasha Richardson, and he’ll never be able to. They first met when they played opposite each other in a Broadway production of Anna Christie. Their love was instantaneous, although their timing wasn’t exactly ideal. Their on-stage chemistry was palpable, earning them critical praise and constant media attention. The couple got married in 1994 and enjoyed 15 years of blissful marriage until her untimely passing in 2009. Neeson was left to raise their two sons, Micheál and Daniel, on his own.
Micheál followed in his parents’ footsteps and is currently making a name for himself in Hollywood. He starred in the film Made in Italy alongside his father and made cameo appearances in Anchorman 2 and Vox Lux. Daniel, on the other hand, is a fashion icon. He wanted to pursue his passion for design. Neeson deserves a lot of credit for successfully bringing up his boys, who grew up into wonderful young men.
Kristin Grannis & Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx broke on the small screen when he joined the iconic television sketch comedy In Living Color. Viewers first spotted him as a confident, fresh-faced comic adept at portraying outrageous roles. Although he continued to do stand-up comedy in many cable specials, Foxx ascended to his career’s pinnacle with a pivotal and memorable success. Despite his degree of fame, the actor is notoriously private about his relationships, but we presume he met Kristin Grannis when she was working in PR.
Foxx shares his daughter Annalise with his former girlfriend. Since she was a child, the almost 12-year-old has accompanied her father to red carpet events and award shows. Although Annalise prefers to keep a low profile, her father will never pass up an opportunity to brag about his daughter. We can’t wait to see more from this adorable father-daughter tandem in the future!
Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler
Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s romance has been full of surprises, from a failed engagement to three beautiful children, culminating in their April 2020 separation. The actress and the former NFL star met through mutual friend Giuliana Rancic and started their whirlwind romance in 2010. Cutler and Cavallari broke up three months after he proposed to her, only to rekindle in November 2011. The couple got married in 2013 and shares three children: Camden, Jaxon, and Saylor.
Although their marriage failed, they gave assurance that their three children will still take precedence. The couple works hard to protect their children’s privacy by acquiring state-of-the-art home security systems. They don’t even post pictures of their kids on social media, but they often gush about their mini-me. Cavallari’s family life permeates all of her endeavors, from her now-defunct reality show Very Cavallari to her jewelry brand, Uncommon James.
Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick first met in Mexico while hanging out with their mutual friends. Though the reality star wasn’t really into Disick at first, they soon started dating. However, they are one of those celebrity couples who keep people guessing as to the status of their relationship. They did split after two years and went on to date others, but they patched things up and had three children between them. However, Disick’s personal issues caused Kardashian to take steps to protect herself and her children and to get help for her partner.
In 2015, they ended things once more. Rumors circulated when the two were spotted together but based on their social media accounts, they were just co-parenting their kids Mason, Penelope, and Reign. Even if the two splits, Kardashian’s investments in several businesses will set her and her family up for life. The two remain on good terms and even go on vacations together as a family.
Kirstie Alley & Parker Stevenson
The breakup between Kirstie Alley and Parker Stevenson was one of the much-talked-about celebrity couples split back then as the two were very much in love. They first met in a bar which led to dating even though they were quite opposite about their likes. Still, it was a whirlwind romance for the two of them which ended them eloping and wishing to start a family. The two adopted two children during their marriage, William and Lillie.
Sadly, after 13 years of togetherness, they agreed to split because of irreconcilable differences. Their assets and other investments were divided between them with custody split so both parents spend time with their little ones. Though they did try their best to remain civil for their children’s sake, the two ended not being friends at all, but their focus is on their children.
Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock
The music industry was shocked to hear that Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock were going their separate ways. To many people, their relationship was like magic. The couple first met at the Academy of Country Music Awards where Clarkson was rehearsing with the band Rascall Flats, who were managed by Blackstock. They later met at the Superbowl event where the American Idol winner sang the National Anthem. Blackstock was single at the time and his father was the one who re-introduced them to one another. Sparks flew and after 10 months of dating, they got engaged.
They tied the knot after four months in an intimate wedding. Later on, the couple had two children. Clarkson also became the stepmom to two children from Blackstock’s previous marriage. She didn’t have any problem with their blended family as they were good parents to their brood. They don’t even have mortgage woes even since both of them have a good net worth. Though the two are splitting, they remain doting parents to their children.
Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise
Katie Holmes’ admission that she had a crush on Tom Cruise was the spark of what would be one of the most talked-about relationships in Hollywood. It was in 2005 that Tom Kat, as the media would call them, stepped out as a couple and became one of the most iconic celebrity couples of all time. The couple had one daughter named Suri a few months before they tied the knot.
The Top Gun actor and his new wife were quite the doting parents to their little bundle of joy and were quite private about their personal life too. They seldom showed Suri’s face to the media, but those rare occasions showed that she was the spitting image of her father. Unfortunately, the romance didn’t last. During the proceedings, Holmes got full custody of their daughter. The actress doesn’t have to worry about personal loans since she has enough net worth for the two of them.
Kate Moss & Jefferson Hack
Kate Moss started her modeling career at a young age. She had already graced several fashion magazines and walked the runway several times to the point where her personal life became a point of interest to many. She had a relationship with Edward Scissorhands star Johnny Depp, but that did not last long. She later stepped out with Jefferson Hack, the co-founder of the Dazed and Confused magazine.
According to Hack’s mother, Moss fell in love with her son because he was laid back, straightforward, and has the smarts too. The couple later welcomed their daughter, Lila Grace Moss Hack. Sadly, their relationship did not last long. Moss got custody of their daughter. Though it is still too early to tell if her daughter is going to follow in her footsteps, what’s true is that Moss has plenty of investments to support her and her daughter.
Kate Hudson & Chris Robinson
Hollywood star Kate Hudson may have had several relationships in her life, she was married only once to The Black Crowes lead singer, Chris Robinson. Theirs was definitely one of the whirlwind romances that Hollywood is full of since the young actress moved in with him days after they first met. They exchanged vows in December 2000, just seven months after they started dating. For Hudson, Robinson was the best man and husband for her. She even took one year of absence from acting just to enjoy being a newlywed!
They welcomed their son, Ryder Russell Robinson, in 2004, and the two couldn’t have been happier. Hudson admitted that their first few years were volatile. There were fights but they often reconciled. Unfortunately, Hudson and Robinson eventually broke up. To their credit, they remain friends and are co-parenting their son.
Johnny Galecki & Alaina Meyer

The actor was later spotted in Tahiti with a woman who was rumored to be Alaina Meyer at that time. They officially appeared as a couple in 2018 and were later spotted wearing rings. Rumors abounded that the two were already married, but they cleared that up real quick.
The couple announced that they were expecting in 2019 with their little one being born in December 2019. The parents were over the moon with their new bundle of joy!

Galecki has enough investment money to raise his son with for sure, as The Big Bang Theory is one of the most-watched programs to date.
Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony
Jennifer Lopez’s marriage to a fellow singer, Marc Anthony, seemed like a match made in heaven. Both have a solid career in music and they have also dabbled in films too. They met at work and the sparks between the two couldn’t be contained. The couple married in 2004 and welcomed twins Emme and Max into their family four years later.
Although many were rooting for the couple, they called it quits in 2011 after seven years of marriage. J.Lo recently revealed that she wasn’t in the best place when they got married back then. She even admitted to getting therapy at the start because she was missing self-love. Fortunately, they remained friends and are successfully co-parenting their twins too. Emme and Max definitely won’t have to worry about applying for student loans in the near future since their parents are loaded!
Jennifer Grey & Clark Gregg
No one expected that Dirty Dancing would become a box office hit, but it did and even propelled its stars, Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, into stardom. Their on-screen romance was one for the books. In terms of personal life, Grey dated her Ferris Bueller’s Day Off co-star, Matthew Broderick, but it did not last long. In 2000, she was seen dating Clark Gregg, who everyone knows for his acting credit as Agent Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The couple got married in Martha’s Vineyard and later had a daughter named Stella. Their commitment to each other and their small family helped them last for 19 years together.

It was refreshing to see the A-list stars become the hands-on type of parents.
Sadly, they eventually separated in 2015 but remain on good terms. In fact, they are co-parenting their children and have been spotted together as a family. Garner has already put plenty of investments in her family while she remains a friend to her former husband. The two stars have since dated other people but are both currently single.

Blue Bloods star Tom Selleck is currently married to Jillie Mack, but the actor was first married to actress Jacqueline Ray from 1971 to 1982. They were considered as Hollywood’s It couple since both were at the peak of their careers and looked absolutely great together. Selleck even adopted Ray’s son, who looks up to him still. The couple did not have any children between them, but they doted on Ray’s son.
Unfortunately, their marriage did not last long since Selleck became an overnight sensation when he was cast in the TV show, Magnum P.I. It was then that Selleck became one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men. The couple later separated since Ray could not stand seeing her husband surrounded by all these women. Selleck eventually tied the knot with his current wife. Regardless of how things ended between the former lovers, the Magnum P.I. actor looked out for his former stepson and acquired home security for him.

One of them is with former flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves.
Though there are conflicting reports on how the two met, what was clear was that the actor started dating Reeves shortly after they met. They later had two children, Scott and Kathryn.

The singer reported that she was indeed pregnant and had a child named Onyx, though she did not say who the father was.
Azalea posted on her Instagram account that she was raising her son alone but later admitted that she was co-parenting with Carti. They have since had some public spats online, but the singer is bent on giving Playboi Carti another chance to be a father to their son. If not, she has enough investments already to keep them comfortable.

They later welcomed a son named Luca in 2012. However, things did not turn out so well between the two which led to their separation after a few years.

Life wasn’t always rainbows and sparkles, though. Amidst the two’s wonderful and sweetly sick relationship with one another, they also had their ups and downs. Douglas was particularly open about their affairs with several actresses. Still, the couple always managed to work things out regardless. Buydens’ loyalty to her husband once saved his life and his fortune. Together, the two of them became prominent Los Angeles philanthropists. In 2004, the couple suffered a major loss after their son, Eric, died because of an accidental substance overdose. Despite the challenges, their romance still went on for over 60 years. They even had their vows renewed for their 50th anniversary and hosted their dream wedding.
Anderson Cooper & Benjamin Maisani
Anderson Hays Cooper is probably a name you’ve heard if you’re constantly watching the news. He was born on June 3, 1967, in New York City. The man is best known as an American television journalist and has started his career in 1990. This means he has been in the industry for quite some time— around three decades, to be exact! In his career, he has delivered several shocking news. However, one of the most shocking news we probably got from him is his split with his long-time partner, Benjamin Maisani. The two even had an adorable son named Wyatt Morgan.
Despite their decision to split, the two are on excellent terms. They’re actually living together as of late, co-parenting little Wyatt. It may seem a little odd for others, but it has worked for them. Let’s give them credit for being such good sports!
Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa were once one of the power couples in the industry. Khalifa is a known American rapper and singer, while Rose was a renowned model and actress. With the former setting up his kingdom in the music industry and Rose setting up hers on the runway, they were practically a force to be reckoned with.
In 2011, the two officially started dating, and by 2012, they got engaged. The couple then tied the knot in 2013. While they technically got married in July, the ceremony wasn’t held until August. Despite the confusion, their union was one of the most talked-about events at the time. In the same year, their son, Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, was born. With the cute Instagram pictures and captions, everything seemed to be going good back then, but some things are just not meant to last. The following year, the two decided to go their separate ways. However, let’s give them credit, as they seem to be doing well with the co-parenting game!
Alicia Silverstone & Christopher Jarecki
Way back in 1997, Alicia Silverstone met Christopher Jarecki outside a movie theater. They dated for eight years and, in 2005, decided to tie the knot in a beachfront wedding at Lake Tahoe. The couple was together for a total of almost twenty-one years before Alicia called her attorney. Sadly, the Clueless star filed for separation in May 2018 with irreconcilable differences as the reason.
Although Alicia and Chris’s relationship didn’t stand the test of time, their love for their child comes first. The former husband and wife bore a healthy baby boy in May 2011 and named him Bear Blu Jarecki. After the divorce, both Chris and Alicia agreed to co-parent Bear. Now, the youngster spends his time going back and forth from each of their houses with Alicia saying, “We ask Bear where he wants to be, but then I started to wonder if that was too much pressure. So, I checked in with him, and he said, ‘I love that I get to decide.'”
Alex Rodriguez & Cynthia Scurtis
The former baseball star Alexander Enmanuel Rodriguez, or better known as A-Rod, married his wife Cynthia Scurtis in 2002. It would make sense that the pair met each other in a Miami gym since he was an athlete in his prime. The relationship deteriorated over time and took a big hit when Alex was hit by scandals and allegations left and right. Ultimately, Cynthia couldn’t handle it anymore and asked to part ways in July 2008, citing emotional abandonment and extramarital affairs being the main reasons.
Prior to the two breaking up and splitting their investments, they had two kids, both girls. The older one, Natasha Alexander, was born in November 2004, two years after Alex and Cynthia got married. Meanwhile, the second one, Ella Alexander, was born in April 2008, just months before their split happened. So far, the former partners make it seem like they are making it work for the children’s sake.
Alan Greisman & Sally Field
Sally Margaret Field had already been a divorcee and a mother of two before she met producer Alan Stewart Greisman. After her relationship officially ended with former co-star and ex-lover Burt Reynolds, Sally married Alan in 1984. Their marriage and love resulted in the youngest of Sally’s children when she gave birth to their only child, Samuel H. Morlan Greisman. Both being private people, not much has been said about the reason for the couple’s falling out in 1994. Whether it was about cash loans or personal differences, we might never know.
What we do know is that Sam was born in December 1987. He and his mom were very close growing up to the point that Sally probably had a feeling he was gay before coming out. In one interview, Sam said, “A lot of young gay men would kill to have Sally Field as a mom. And a lot of parents of gay kids could learn a lot from her. I’m very, very lucky.”
Adele & Simon Konecki
In 2011, English singer-songwriter Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, also more commonly known as Adele, began dating a charity entrepreneur, Simon Konecki. The following year, Adele gave birth in October to a healthy baby boy named Angelo James Adkins. They were a happy little family, and both lovebirds were clearly in love with each other. Of course, it’s never that easy when you’re rich and famous. The singer’s popularity got bigger, and her star shone brighter while her husband had to stay on the sidelines for most of the time. After being together for seven years, the couple decided to separate.
Even though Adele’s and Simon’s marriage didn’t work out, both parties are committed to co-parenting and raising their boy together. Angelo has now become the Hello singer’s sole focus and purpose in life. A close friend even mentioned that Adele is very involved with his school and online classes. She loves her mom’s life. The musician’s whole mindset changed after she decided she wanted to be a healthier mom, and she never looked back.”
