Raising kids with an ex isn’t always easy, but Olivia Wilde is trying to remember that her children come first.
Still, she admits that, sometimes, it can be “tough” navigating life after their split. “I think, you know, reshaping a family is tricky,” Olivia shared, “and the one benefit is it’s allowed for some really deep conversations with my kids about emotions, and about happiness, and about what family means, and love, and it’s actually allowed me to get to know them in a different way.”
Olivia also discussed the advantages of having a blended family, after Kelly Clarkson mentioned her own experience coming from one. “It’s hard, but it’s doable,” Olivia said. “If you can surround them with so much love, then it’s OK. But, you know, it’s tricky because we’re not doing it in private.”
“I mean, I’m not on the internet, I’m not on Instagram,” she noted. “So I think that really helps and just focusing on what’s real, your trusted circle of friends, what’s real, things that make you happy, people you love, people who love you, and like just keeping your mind on what’s real. I think that’s how I get through it.”
