The couple hit the media when they announced their separation in 2002 and their divorce case was finalized in 2003. After the divorce, Janet found herself frightened by the prospect of handling life on her own.

The children were always the couple’s priority, she says.

“I think John and I have done a really great job letting them know how loved they are, that it was not their fault. It came down to not even a choice – it had to happen, and we would do the best we could do for them. John and I both felt that the most important thing was to do our best at getting these kids through it with as little pain as possible.”

John’s frequent travels mean Janet gets to spend more time with the children, but their dad remains a big part of their lives.
