In my house, I live, my wife
lives, our four children lives,
and my ex-wife lives.
[LAUGHTER]
– Uh–
Not normal.
[LAUGHS]
Yeah.
Yeah.
Um–
– But it works for us–
– –and it’s–
– –very well.
– –and it’s awesome.
[LAUGHTER]
I don’t know why.
I mean– and if you had
asked me that, you know,
15 years ago, or even 10 years
ago, I’d have been like, nah.
But it is– it runs so smoothly.
It’s crazy.
It’s very odd.
[CHUCKLES] But with his work
schedule and never knowing
what’s going to happen, when
it’s going to happen, where
he’s going to have to be–
I mean, last year I
was out of the country–
Yeah.
–for, like, seven
months or something.
Davis was born, and
when Davis hit two months,
he was in Australia, France,
South Africa, Atlanta.
He was gone for, like,
five and a half months.
If Tracy hadn’t been
here, I would have
died or killed one of my kids.
I don’t know, whichever
one came first.
There was no way I would have
made it through that time
without her help– at all.
It just would not have happened.
Uh-uh.

    I don't think I would be able to do this as either the ex or the current. It's not even about feeling it's just that it would mean a loss of privacy. What if the ex wants to date? What if the new wife and him have an argument? You want your ex in the house to hear everything? Lool

    I’m confused. Why is the ex wife living there? Does the current wife not have her parents who can help her with the kids, or if he’s always working and making money, why don’t they just hire a nanny? Maybe I need to watch the full episode to get the full explanation on this. But honestly, it just doesn’t sound right.

    People we need our village to raise these kids. Not every EX is a enemy. I know plenty of people who couldn't work it out with their ex romantically but are best of friends now. How great for all three to be able to make it work/happen for the children. (Some people are too selfish to realize child rearing is not about MOM or DAD) 👏👏👏

    He has 4 kids with his 1st wife and 4 with his current wife, that is a lot of kids. It’s very mature that they can come together and raise them together. Kids are great and they are very expensive. If he’s gone half the year then they would have to work together to make sure that the kids are good. Not traditional but practical.

    I guess many might say he is a lucky man. However, women are emotional and this is clearly not a sustainable relationship. This wife has been conditioned to think it is perfect but if the truth be told it would be so different. So sad what we are still accepting these behaviours in this day and age.

But they are all living under the same roof?🤔 Like, how does that happen? What was the situation that brought this about? Whose bright idea was this? Does the ex-wife have a man too? Where is he and how is he cool with her living with her ex-husband?🤷🏽‍♀️ So many questions. I need answers.😩
