In fact, this happy couple are soldiering on and not letting the rumors get the better of them — and Jef is doing his best to be a great father figure to Em's daughter Ricki!
Ricki's in her first week of first grade, and Jef is already an active participant. He even picked her up from school, and has become an official car pooler! "Carpool dad," Jef tweeted along with a cute picture of himself, Ricki and some random townies in a minivan.
Awww, Jef's the best. To quote the man himself, "we feel a mix of, like, a million emotions right now."
