TV personality Brooke Burke is one proud mama! She coparents her two oldest kids — Neriah, 19, and Sierra, 17 — with her first ex-husband, Garth Fisher, and her younger children — Heaven, 12, and Shaya, 11 — with her second ex-husband, David Charvet.
“I raise all my children differently,” the former Dancing With the Stars host — who is now dating boyfriend Scott Rigsby — previously told Us Weekly. “I truly do. Just when you think you figured it out, you got to tweak your rearing skills.”
With four kids at home, Brooke has learned a thing or two about being a successful parent. Her advice to all the struggling moms out there? To be confident in everything that you do.
“One of the things I always tell women is, ‘Find your own way.’ Everybody’s going to tell you how to do it,” she said. “Every mom’s out there doing something better than you. And I think we have incredible women’s intuition and we really have to follow that.”
Brooke doesn’t fight with any of her children’s fathers either. They have a great coparenting relationship and it’s all because they put their differences aside.
“My children have amazing fathers, and we take the high road for our kids. Being a parent is selfless,” she explained. “Learn how to have a working divorce. Have a better relationship with your ex than you had when you were married. That’s the goal!”
When Brooke announced she was separating from her second husband David in April 2018, she said it broke her heart to not be a married woman anymore but, ultimately, she was doing the best thing for her kids.
“We have tried to keep our separation private for some time out of respect for our children and family. Although I believe this is a positive change, I am deeply saddened because I loved being married,” she said on her blog, Modern Mom.
“It took me a long time to differentiate between giving up and letting go, and even longer to recognize when it was time to do so. We are still a family full of love, simply redefining our dynamics,” she added. “I believe this is a necessary decision for my entire family unit.”
