Maureen Waititu: Co-parenting with Frankie was my greatest dream

Content Creator Maureen Waititu has said she is now at a good place having realized her goal, which was to establish a co-parenting relationship with her ex-partner Frankie Just Gym It.

The popular celebrity couple served couple goals when they once run their YouTube channel together documenting their lives.

But their once blissful relationship ended in a nasty breakup after close to five years of being together. The split took a mental meltdown on Ms Waititu.

Efforts to initially co-parent their two sons became a challenge with each of them accusing the other of shortcomings. With the tension between them, Frankie was unable to see his sons for a while.

However, Ms Waititu now says they are at a good place as far as co-parenting is concerned, something she had hoped for a very longtime.

“(Co-parenting) it’s easier now because the babies can see both their parents which was my greatest dream,” she said.

The renowned content creator also says, she is in a good place as far as her mental health is concerned.

“Everything else aside, I’m cursing nicely, my mental, physical, emotional health is good, I’m in a really good place. When you’ve healed, when everything is behind you, you tend to do the right thing,” she explained.

“How you raise your kids will reflect as they grow. Of course the boys will be protective of me but if they aren’t used to seeing uncle so and so around you they will grow with an understanding when they come of age and you introduce them to your new guy,”
