Soleil Moon Frye is holding her four children close amid her separation from estranged husband Jason Goldberg. The Punky Brewster alum and the TV producer are focusing on coparenting their kids, Poet, Jagger, Lyric and Story, after announcing their split following 22 years of marriage in December 2020.
“Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg quietly separated,” the former sitcom star’s rep told People at the time she filed for divorce. “Their priority will continue to be their four beautiful children as they move forward with love and compassion.”
Soleil and Jason’s romance began in the late 1990s. The Staging Christmas actress and the former Punk’d executive producer tied the knot in 1998 and enjoyed seven years of wedded bliss before welcoming their eldest child, Poet, in 2005. Their daughter’s arrival was followed by Jagger in 2008, Lyric in 2014, and Story in 2016.
Looking back on the moment she held her first baby in her arms, Soleil said she was overwhelmed with joy to be “a mother.” In an essay about parenting for Today, Soleil said she “had Poet in [her] arms nestled next to [her], cherishing each and every moment of that new baby smell.”
“I was madly in love,” the Kid 90 director sweetly added. “The moment I had waited for my whole life was here.”
Over the years, Soleil and her estranged hubby shared countless wonderful memories with their kids. On the 10th anniversary of their wedding day in 2008, the Killing Secret actress and the film creator renewed their vows at the stunning home they shared in Hollywood Hills, California. At the time, Soleil marveled over the unforgettable moment.
“Besides the days my children were born – and my first wedding – it was the best night of my life,” the showbiz beauty gushed to People, recalling the “magical” day surrounded by their beloved children, family and friends.
Soleil and Jason’s love story may have come to an end, but the former duo will always have love and respect for each other. Fortunately for the Sabrina the Teenage Witch alum, she feels luckier than ever to have an amazing man as the dad of her children.
While celebrating Father’s Day in June 2020, Soleil uploaded the sweetest tribute for Jason, which included a loving message and various photos of the hunk and their kids. “Happy, happy Father’s Day!” she captioned the post. “A lot of babies and a whole lot of love.”
