"I am co-parenting with someone," she told her guest Kate Hudson, continuing: "And although we might not be married anymore, and he’s even married with his beautiful new wife Allie [Michler], our wonderful step-mother, we’re in a daily engagement and our relationship has never been better."

Barrymore declared, "We should champion our exes, and you don’t have to be best friends, especially if they have a new person in their life."

The actress also stressed the importance of maintaining a healthy relationship with an ex while making sure that person's new partner doesn't feel "uncomfortable."

Barrymore and Kopelman said "I Do" in 2012 and split in 2016. Kopelman moved on with Michler, a director at Vogue, in 2021.

Meanwhile, the talk show host — she was also previously married to Tom Green from 2001 to 2002 and Jeremy Thomas from 1994 to 1995 — is single and ready for love again!

As she begins to get back out there, Barrymore recently revealed she even sought relationship advice from her "pretend therapist" George Clooney.
