Peter Facinelli: I'm learning to co-parent

Peter Facinelli is taking the process of co-parenting with his ex-wife "day by day".

The Twilight star split from former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress Jennie Garth earlier this year.

The pair have three daughters - Luca 14, Lola, nine, and five-year-old Fiona - and Peter is doing his best to help raise them.

"When you're going through it yourself, you have to take it day by day," he told People magazine.

The Hollywood star has been busy promoting the Sears Outdoor Life collection, and he is a big fan of adventurous activities.

The actor often takes his children on exciting daytrips and feels he and his daughters make a good team.

"I take the girls RV-ing all the time. There's a lot of s'mores-making and singing by the campfire," he revealed.

"They bring out my sensitive side and I toughen them up a little bit."

Jennie has turned her life around since the divorce and recently revealed she and Peter continue to be "great parents together".

The 38-year-old agrees they have managed to maintain a good relationship for their children.

"Co-parenting takes two great parents to put their differences aside and focus on the children, and that's what I've been doing," he explained.
