Things seem to still be good for the two of them. “We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird,” she said, adding, “there’s no perfect time so we just decided to do it.”

Was this whole situation timed so she could focus more on her album?  “I don’t know, you can ask him, but it was just getting a little weird to laugh through the first date questions,” she said, giggling.

One normalcy that remains for the couple is their co-parenting of 4-year-old son Axl.  “We just wanted to get adjusted in private. And Axl’s school has helped as we have a co-op so Josh and I would walk there several times before the school season. So I get to learn from the teachers and see how he reacts in a group of friends that he knows. And I get to help out and serve them snacks and clean the dishes. We have fun, we get down and dirty and read the stories with our costumes. You get down in the sand and get dirty — I love it. I love that part of it all.”
