Jeannie Mai's former husband, Freddy Harteis, is a family man who shares a daughter and a son with his girlfriend, Toole.
The "The Hollywood Hunter" star is yet to walk down the aisle with the mother of his kids, but they live together as one big happy family.
Last month, he showed off some beautiful pictures of his family, all dressed up to mark the Easter celebration. His daughter, Emersyn Rose, was born shortly after his divorce from talk show co-host Jeannie Mai, and Harteis welcomed his son two years later.
While sharing the news of his son's birth, the TV personality posted an adorable image of Emmie and her infant brother, Freddy, then said:
"The moment Miss Emmie Rose realized she was a big sister. I am so thankful for these two special souls..."
The "The Real" co-anchor explained that at the beginning of their relationship, she made it clear to her ex that she wouldn't want kids.
Both exes have since moved on with other partners.
Harteis agreed, but along the line, he wanted to expand their family unit. Though their relationship didn't experience any scandals, his heart desire collided with hers.
"To this day, I mean it honestly, he's the best man I know... He's very loyal; he's very compassionate..."
Their separation process took a rather ugly turn and several months as there was a lot of back and forth on the settlement that was favorable to both parties.
The onscreen diva got sole ownership of their $1million home in California, along with her personal effects and several bank accounts. Harteis' settlement deal was three vehicles and some bank accounts.
Both exes have since moved on with other partners. Jeannie recently got engaged to her rapper beau, Jeezy, who she's head over heels for, and the "The Hollywood Hunter" star is in a happy place with his girlfriend and kids.
