Raising kids as a single parent is challenging, no matter what. But now that Brendan Fraser has a decade-and-a-half of experience in it, he’s sharing some words of wisdom in a new interview — and it’s incredibly sweet.

The Whale star, who recently won a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actor for the film, has been a single dad to his sons Griffin Arthur, 20, prozac side effects uk Holden Fletcher, 18, and Leland Francis, 16, since he and Afton Smith divorced in 2008. In Tuesday’s appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, Fraser shared some words of wisdom.

“Speaking of priorities changing, I also became a single mother having kids,” host Drew Barrymore, who is mom to Olive, 10, and Frankie, 8, with ex Will Kopelman, told Fraser. “You are a single dad, how did you navigate that? I’m still trying to figure it out seven years later. Any advice?”

The Mummy star responded: “Yeah, have a great relationship with your partner, and that way you’ll never not put your kids first.” Yes! Putting your kids first should always be a priority, no matter what your relationship with your ex is like (seriously, if Kim Kardashian can do it, anyone can!).

“I think I want to put them first so badly I don’t know how to make room for anyone else,” Barrymore admitted in the interview.

Fraser responded, “At the tender age of 54, right now, I feel like I’m coming into my own after all these years, but I wouldn’t have been able to were it not for them, and the trial and error that you make along the way.” Such empowering advice. The mistakes we made as parents helped us become who we are today, so there’s no need to get caught up in the past.
