Co-parenting can be hard after a breakup, but most parents agree that it’s their child who comes first not their own personal feelings about each other or each other’s spouses. Still, when your ex gets a new partner things can be a little awkward for a while. You never know how an individual might react to your child. What if you don’t agree with their style?
Luckily for Brittney Johnson, the new transition was pretty smooth. In fact, she’s now good friends with her ex’s new girlfriend, Kayla Imhoff. Johnson and her ex, Charlie, have one daughter together named Payton, and little Payton absolutely means the world to Johnson, Charlie, and Imhoff.
On Facebook, Johnson wrote an open letter and a positive post about Imhoff and how much she means to her and little Payton. She started off by addressing the other mothers who feel threatened when their ex gets a new partner saying, “To all of the mothers out there who throw a fit when another woman treats your child as her own: why isn’t that exactly what you want?”
“I prayed one night for the type of woman my daughter’s father would be with, knowing that she would be raised in two homes,” Johnson continued. She went on to say that Imhoff “has been a gift of so much more than I could have hoped for.” She calls her a “true role model” and an “amazing bonus mom” for little Payton.
