Newly single mom Jennie Garth had a special guest along on the red carpet at last night’s Nickelodeon’s 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards: Her 14-year-old daughter Luca (March 31). What a pretty pair!
Weeks after revealing their split, Jennie and Peter Facinelli are now headed for divorce: The Twilight star filed the papers in court on Wednesday, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Despite the break-up, Jennie says that she and Peter always put Luca and her sisters Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, first: “We are great parents together,” she tells People. “So when it’s about the kids, it’s wonderful.”
As for the girls, the former 90210 star reveals that they are handling the news as well as can be expected.
“They know the heartache that’s behind all of this,” she says. “They get it. They’re doing surprisingly well.”
