Co-parenting isn't always going to be easy. When a couple shares a child but chooses not to be together, it means there are going to be some uncomfortable moments, mainly when one of the parents starts seeing someone. The kids probably won't care at all, but it can be awkward to see your ex dating someone else, and acting like a parent to your own child.
For Audrey Loving and Corey Henry had their daughter, they met when they were 18, got engaged, and welcomed their daughter Riley together. Due to some long-distance issues, Loving and Henry called off their engagement, and Loving took full custody of Riley. Henry till keeps in touch with Riley, and they have a great relationship, but when he began dating Audrey, there was the potential for an awkward situation.
Audrey comes from a blended family herself, so she knew the importance of staying civil for the sake of the child, and when Loving saw how great Audrey was with Riley, she couldn't help but share the delight.
This is my daughters fathers girlfriend. The sweetest thing ever! I'm super thankful for her because when she visits her dad she feeds her, takes care of her, buys her gifts, and basically takes care of her like her own. Why do all these moms act so spiteful and jealous towards the other women?
NOONE said it was easy trying to be a mother to a kid you didn't have. So when there is someone trying, don't push them away! Because they DON'T need the drama they WILL leave and then you're stuck with someone who is the evil step mom.
Yes they exist! I see them everywhere! A kid can have two moms because in my eyes the more people that love her I'm happy! I would never make her feel like an outsider; I'm extremely thankful for this girl. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Ladies, grow up and focus on being a good mom. Love more hate less!
Loving was met with incredible reception, with people applauding her for being so welcoming to a new woman in her daughter's life. The post garnered more than 34,000 shares on Facebook, and all the comments were positive.
Unfortunately, the relationship between Henry and Audrey didn't last, but that doesn't mean Loving has forgotten about her. She posted another beautiful tribute to Audrey, saying she will always be family.
This photo means EVERYTHING to me. I cried when I saw this...
Unfortunately Rileys Biological father isn't with this awesome women I bragged about and went viral over, But she will always be apart of Rileys life. I don't care who she ends up marrying but Riley will always be apart of you and your girls life. I love this girl and whoever dares messes with her feelings is in big trouble because you have to go through me.
I will always have a weak spot in my heart for Whitney, She is my family..I repeat you mess with her you mess with me. I hope you ladies learn from Whit and I that you that you can make it work. You CAN makes those complicated relationships with the other spouse happen.
So for those of you that asked "so what happens if they break up" Your answer "Nothing changes.." We did it and we will still continue even though my child's father isn't with her anymore. She is still and always apart of her life so it's worth it. Thank you for all you have done and will continue to do for my daughter (your daughter as well).
Riley and I love you Whit forever and always â¤ï¸ your [sic] beautiful inside and out
Seeing the love these two clearly have for each other, and for Riley, is so refreshing. This is how co-parenting should be.
