The two have been apart for two years now (though legally divorced for just over two months), but despite the fact that Mariah has a new man, she and Nick remain the best of friends (see: their adorable Halloween costumes). In fact, Nick told The Howard Stern show last year that they still converse every day.
The two got together this week to have a civilized family dinner, with Nick taking to Instagram to show off his adorable family.
“Family dinner!! All is well! Live! Love! Laugh!” he wrote. “@mariahcarey #Ncredible.”
Mariah, for her part, also shared the shot, echoing Nick’s exact words with a #repost.
She wasn’t the only one receiving comfort from a familiar face at the dinner: Nick, who reportedly suffers from lupus, had been hospitalized over the holidays, and was celebrating his renewed health following no less than five blood transfusions — yikes!
While we think it’s sweet that these two can remain so close for their kids (and each other), something tells us that deep down, Nick still cares for Mariah on a deeper level — she IS Mimi, after all. Here’s to hoping this non-union of a union doesn’t lead to heartbreak down the road for either party.
Do you think Mariah and Nick are doing co-parenting right or are they too close for comfort? Share @BritandCo.
