Julie Bowen gets real about coparenting with her ex-husband

Julie Bowen’s main priority is her sons, and that’s why the Modern Familystar was happy to report that her boys are doing just fine post-divorce. And all are adjusting to the coparenting situation. 

“My kids are good and that’s all that matters, you know?” Bowen, 48, told Us Weekly exclusively at the Baby2Baby Gala in Culver City, California, on Saturday, November 10.   

The two-time Emmy winner shares Oliver, 11, and 9-year-old twins John and Gustav with her former spouse, Scott Phillips. Bowen filed for divorce in September after 13 years of marriage.
