"It’s just, especially when you have a kid — I have a son — and when you go through a breakup you want to be a role model as well," Koy told Clarkson. "You lead by example and you don’t want him to do that."

Koy also revealed he is still friends with Joseph's mother and his ex-wife, Angie King, sharing, "Like his mommy, it’s like we’re best friends 'til this day, we're best friends."

"She lives right in front of me. I have a house and that's where she lives. She's got all the keys to my cars, the codes and everything," Koy added. "When I’m on the road I don’t have to worry about anything."

As for his relationships with the rest of his exes, Koy emphasized, "It’s healthy. It’s so healthy and it can work. You guys were friends before, you can be friends after."

Koy and Handler confirmed their romance at the end of September 2021 after sparking rumors in the weeks leading up to the reveal. After almost one year together, the Chelsea Lately alum shared in a July statement, "it is with a heavy heart to announce that we have decided together that it is best for us to take a break from our relationship right now."
