"They were really cool with each other. Bella was in a great mood, smiling and seemed really happy while being there."

GWYNETH & CHRIS
They may have "consciously uncoupled," but Paltrow and Martin still stick together when it comes to family matters. The exes reunited in New York City for a festive pre-Thanksgiving 2015 dinner with their two children, Apple and Moses, where all four appeared "super happy" and "chummy." Friendly relations between the two are nothing new, though: Just days after announcing their separation, the couple headed to the Bahamas together (along with the kids), and have continued to meet up for family dinners. Paltrow even called Martin in a speech, appeared on his band Coldplay's new album and took Apple and Moses to see to see Coldplay play in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where they stayed in the same hotel as Martin. Perhaps there's something to it after all.

GIGI & CODY
For most of us, sitting next to an ex on an international flight sounds like one of fate's crueler jokes, but Hadid and Simpson have good senses of humor.

REESE & RYAN
Since calling it quits after seven years of marriage and two children – Ava and Deacon – Witherspoon and Phillippe can put their differences on the sidelines to root for their children.

In fact, they reunited, along with Witherspoon's husband Jim Toth and Phillippe's then-girlfriend Paulina Slagter, for one of their kid's games on May 18, 2013.
