Former lovebirds Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons have this co-parenting thing down to a science. Their blended family runs like a well-oiled machine, and honestly, their friendship is so strong sometimes we forget they lived in holy matrimony once upon time.
Russell shared the secret to their success on a recent episode of “Bethenny.” He described Kimora, who is now married to investment banker Tim Leissner, as his best friend.
“We’ve always been [friends],” he said. “I mean even when we were divorcing it was like ‘You want this? I don’t know.’ We were good friends always.”
The 56-year-old yoga guru went on to say that his daughters, 14-year-old Ming Lee and 11-year-old Aoki Lee, have the best mom in the world. “She is a good mother too. It can’t get better,” the entrepreneur gushed. “My kids go to a school for gifted kids and they are well behaved. They are awake and conscious and she’s the reason. She’s an amazing mother and I go and meditate with them every morning and take them to school, they’re just pretty and they’re an inspiration for my life obviously and she’s made them for me.”
