Amicable exes! While celebrating his daughter’s graduation on May 23, Twilight star Peter Facinelli, 49, reunited with his ex, Jennie Garth, 51, in New York City. The blonde beauty took to Instagram to share a carousel of photos with their daughter, Luca Bella, 25, who graduated from The New School. In the fourth slide of the post, Jennie and Peter posed alongside the graduate to celebrate her big moment.
“So happy for my @lucabellabella as she completes a huge chapter in her life. So much hard work paid off for this moment,” the caption began. “I can’t wait to see what’s next for you my sweet #proudmom #graduate.” Luca took to the comments to respond her mom’s sweet post later that day. “Thank you Mommie so grateful you were there (and are always there for me),” the 25-year-old penned. In the photo, Luca rocked her black graduation cap complete with a bright-red gown. Meanwhile, her dad opted for a plaid blue suit and matching polo shirt.
Soon after the mother-of-three shared the photos with her one million followers, many of them took to the comments to react to seeing Luca all grown up. Clueless star Elisa Donovan, 52, was one of the first to comment and she even noted that she too graduated from the NYC-based school. “Congratulations! Bravo! …I also went to The New School and Eugene Lang College. Loved my years there,” she quipped. Meanwhile a fan couldn’t help but admire how much Jennie and her daughter look alike. “Third picture, she looks just like you! 90210 Kelly! Congratulations!”, they gushed.
Peter and Jennie, who were married from 2001 to 2013, also share two other kids. Their daughter, Fiona Eve Facinelli, was born in 2006, while their other daughter, Lola Ray, was born in 2002. Years after their split, in Apr. 2018, Jennie spoke to US Weekly about co-parenting their kids together. “I learned that forgiveness is possible and time heals wounds, which is hard to believe when you’re in it, but it all works out in the end,” she said at the time. “I think, in general, it’s important that you need to focus on you and what makes you happy and what makes you you. You know? And if you lose sight of that, in any relationship you’re in, it’s not gonna be as successful as it could be.”
The Jennie Garth Project star has since moved on and even went on to marry actor Dave Abrams, 41, in 2015. Although Peter has not re-married (yet), he is engaged to actress Lily Anne Harrison. The Christmas Camp star and Peter welcomed their first child together in Sept. 2022. “Happy ‘Labor’ Day @lilyanneharrison Sept 5th, 2022,” he captioned his son, Jack‘s birth announcement at the time. He is now a proud father-of-four.
