Here’s a Christmas miracle – a celebrity couple who are sticking to their word about having an amicable divorce.
The pair are putting the needs of their almost-3-year-old first. “We love each other. We’re a family,” Bloom, 36, said shortly after their breakup.
“We’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives,” he said of the Victoria’s Secret supermodel, 30. “There’s no question that for the sake of our son and everything else, we’re going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn.”
“Life sometimes doesn’t work out exactly as we plan or hope for,” he continued. “But we’re adults We love and care about each other. Most of all, we love our son.”
