"This Is Us" star, Justin Hartley is doing an excellent job at parenting his 15-year-old daughter, Isabella Hartley. 


Justin and ex-wife, Lindsay Korman, got married in 2003. A year later, the couple welcomed their first and only child together, Isabella Hartley.

They remained together until 2012 when the couple split over irreconcilable differences. Since their separation, when Isabella was eight, Justin has made efforts to ensure that his daughter gets proper care.

The actor, whose parenting has been appraised on several occasions, says he gets some help from Isabella and her mom. 

While talking about the relationship he has with his daughter on The Tonight Show, Justin praised her for making parenting easy for him.

In his words, Isabella, who has now started dating, should get all the credit for his excellent parenting.  The 42-year-old dad said:

"I get a lot of help from my daughter. I mean, she's the one that's making it all go around. She deserves all the credit."  


On how he felt about his daughter dating, the doting father could not hide his jealousy. Justin said jokingly that, "She's dating a little bit, and I just want to crawl into a hole and die."

The movie star, who recently ended a two-year marriage with actress Chrishell Stause, seems to have gotten over the separation faster than his ex-wife.


Many attribute Hartley's speedy recovery from the divorce to the friendship he has with his daughter. The father of one, when talking about his daughter to Us Weekly, disclosed that they do a lot together, he said:

"We do everything from read to surf Instagram... We do everything."


Hartley and Chrishell Stause got married in 2017, and by November 2019, the couple's romance ended. They had some issues during their marriage, but Stause said she did not expect her ex-husband to take the matter to court. 

A source told People that Stause was surprised at Hartley's move for divorce and is yet to get over it. The actress who lost her father in April 2019, wrote a tribute to her late father in an Instagram post on World Cancer Day.

Justin and Isabella have built a beautiful relationship with each other over the years. The actor hopes that his teenage daughter, who is fast-growing and beginning to date, will always find a place for him in her heart.
