Breakups can be hard, especially when there are kids, fame and fortune involved! For many stars, once the sparks of passion died out, they struggled to maintain a harmonious relationship with their ex. A few celebs, however, have managed to establish friendships with their former loves and found ways to successfully co-parent their little ones. Wonderwall.com has put together a list of the top celebrity co-parents, starting with Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr.

Since then, Orlando and Miranda have stayed close for the sake of their son even after she moved on with new husband Evan Spiegel. "Miranda and I have a remarkable relationship," Orlando told ELLE UK. "We co-parent really well."

"It's work. I don't want people to think it's effortless — it's work to do this because you obviously don't get a divorce because things are going well," she told People. "But it's letting those things live in the past … [It means] realizing you're in a relationship forever, so learning to treat one another with respect and dignity and just doing the right thing for Kase."
