Forget those evil stepmothers lurking in fairy tales — from Jennifer Aniston to Ashton Kutcher, there are tons of celebrities who either have the makings to be a great stepparent, or they already have a wonderful relationship with their stepkids! As Jen steps into the lives of new boyfriend Chris Gartin‘s kids, as OK! reports in this week’s issue, we’re taking a look at other successful step (or almost step) families!
At 41, Jen’s dreams are coming true — recently hanging out with Chris’ kids painting tea pots at a party thrown by Courteney Cox Arquette.
“Jen did one with Sydney and Flynn,” an insider tells OK! of Chris’ daughter, 7, and son, 4. “It was so cute to watch. She was so comfortable with them. She has known Chris for almost 10 years, and she’s literally known his kids since they were born, so it all feels natural for her.”
