Bollywood celebs have a new parenting trend (and we are impressed!)

Divorce does not essentially mean an end to parenting and we have proof! In today’s world, relationship statuses change in a jiffy and even before you know it, couples part ways or find another partner. However, our Bollywood parents have been a little different!

The difference in opinion and other family issues may have caused them to part, but that did not deter them from being true to their kids. ‘Divorce does not mean an end to parenting’ is the mantra a few parents followed and we have to say it is pretty cool!

The idea of co-parenting has been popular world over, but it looks like the trend has crept into the East as well. Ex-couples coming together for the sake of their kids and hanging out together for family holidays and other occasions has grabbed headlines off late and has also been doing a lot of good to the parents themselves.

And contrary to the bitter divorces, where couples can’t stand the sight of each other, co-parenting has helped bring in a positive change in their relationship and attitude towards each other and their kids. This new, healthy friendship between exes is what is doing the rounds in Bollywood and we have absolutely no qualms about it!

We still aren’t over Arbaaz and Malaika’s divorce, but the couple has handled the situation with grace and has also come together for the sake of their boys. Recently, Arbaaz and Malaika were seen dining with their ‘Khan(dhan)’ and that also got a lot of tongues wagging.


Adios mallorca♥️♥️♥️♥️

Not just that, the family was also spotted holidaying together and in fact, Arbaaz was seated on the front row at a recent yoga session, headed by Malaika on International Yoga Day.

Another Bollywood couple who are all for co-parenting is Suaaanne and Hrithik! The couple has always stood by each other and still are. They are in fact working together amicably as a team to help their boys enjoy their childhood.

From beach holidays to dinner dates and Instagram selfies, mommy and daddy have strongly believed in co-parenting and have also succeeded in it!

5 Benefits of co-parenting

1. The kids don’t get to bear the brunt

2. There is a family bond (even if its blur)

3. Makes the child feel more secure and less stressed

4. Improves communication and relationship with both parents

5. You become your kid’s role model simply because they see you helping each other sail through difficult times and are likely to learn how to resolve conflict in the same adult way.

To wrap it, we must admit, it is very commendable of these Bollywood stars to stay sane even after a bitter divorce. Well, they do realise it is important for themselves, if not for anything else after all. So, even if you are ending your relationship for some reason, make sure you deal with it the right way so that it lets both of you co-exist.
