In an interview with People last year, Ben spoke about what his relationship with Jen has been like after finalizing their divorce. The good news?

"And I’m very lucky she is the mother of my children."
Continuing his praise of Jen, Ben said:
"I’m very grateful and respectful of her. Our marriage didn’t work, and that’s difficult. Both of us really believe that it’s important for kids to see their parents respect one another and get along, whether they’re together or not.
It’s important for my kids to know that I respect and care about Jen and she treats me the same way...I have a lot of respect and gratitude toward her. And I wish her the very best."
