Looks like their differences weren’t so irreconcilable after all.
After both citing that reason in filing separate divorce papers last month, Larry King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King, have reconciled and halted their separation.
“We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family. That is all that matters to us,” the couple said in a joint statement, according to Reuters. “We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other. We want to thank our friends for their loyal love and support – for being there for us.”
The CNN host, 76, and his singer wife, 50, have two children together: Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9.
