Mayim Bialik on happiness, ex-husband, and raising children

The actress praises her ex-husband for being a great dad

After splitting from husband Michael Stone in 2013 after nine years of marriage, Mayim Bialik says she’s grateful for their current status and relationship. The two have two children — Frederick and Miles – and she appreciates his ability to keep things civil for their sake.

She revealed through her YouTube account: “I’m a working mom and every night when I’m working, he’s the one feeding them dinner, giving them a bath, reading them goodnight stories, tucking them in and making sure they sleep well. The best thing I can do is be tremendously grateful for what a wonderful ex-husband I have and what a great dad he is and to continue to shatter the image of the perfect family I thought my intact family would be.”

While Bialik says there are some things she finds annoying about her ex-husband, the star insists their priorities consist of putting their children first.

“Being divorced is not a fun way to raise kids. Things my ex did when we were married that annoyed me then, annoy me still. Life is not a dress rehearsal. My kids get one chance to be kids and this is their situation. I have to put them first because I’m their mom and he’s their dad.”

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old actress previously said she thinks actors are usually overpaid for their work.

“I don’t make as much money as people think I do. I don’t think about the money a lot. I am an employed actor and we are all overpaid. I am grateful to be employed. But I still need to think about what is next and I think about it a lot. I don’t think the pay has anything to do with the quality of the show. We have an extraordinary cast and amazing writing staff and people all care passionately about putting on a show every week.”
