Peter Facinelli Says He’s A Better Dad Post-Divorce

Twilight star Peter Facinelli shares that he's a more hands-on dad since his divorce from Jennie Garth.

It has been a full year since Peter and Jennie announced their divorce plans after fighting hard to make their marriage of 11 years work.

Peter now shares that the divorce has had a positive outcome when it comes to his  role as dad to their three girls, Luca, Lola, and Fiona.  He explains, "Co-parenting has been great. I'm able to have the kids every other week and in some ways — a lot of ways — it makes me an even better father. I get to get up and make them breakfast, make them lunches, take them to school and I have the full responsibility of all three girls for the whole entire week, and I bond a lot with them that way."

Peter returns for the new season of Nurse Jackie, which kicked off this past Sunday night on Showtime.  Are you watching?
