Three cheers for maturity!

Actor Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr are giving a textbook lesson in how to behave as a divorcing couple with children.

Ideally, they’d have stayed together instead of splitting up in October after three years of marriage, but as Orlando put it, "Life sometimes doesn't work out exactly as we plan or hope for. But we're adults … We love and care about each other. Most of all, we love our son."

According to People, the former couple and their nearly 3-year-old son Flynn were seen together in New York City on Christmas Eve.

“There's no question that for the sake of our son and everything else, we're going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn,” Orlando said. The Lord of the Rings star knows he and Miranda are going to be in each other’s lives for good, so they are putting their son’s needs first and not avoiding or bad-mouthing each other.

It’s nice to see them taking the responsible path. As we all know from experience or witnessing, some breakups get very ugly and the kids end up in the middle, absorbing all the negativity. Kudos to these two for setting a great example for all couples. Although, an even better example would be if they decided to save the marriage and get back together...
