Their friendship has been built over the years following their contentious relationship when it emerged in 2009 that Eddie had been cheating on Brandi with LeAnn. Brandi and Eddie were married from 2001 to 2010, while LeAnn was married to her own husband Dean Sheremet and filed for divorce shortly after the news broke.

Eddie and LeAnn then wed in April 2011 and were in a public feud with Brandi for several years. However they came together over co-parenting Jake, 15, and 19-year-old Mason.

LeAnn shared this picture with fans and Brandi reposted it

“I love to see this!” commented one fan. “A willingness to grow and change for the better so that you and your ex and the new partner(s) are able to peacefully co-parent should always be applauded.”

LeAnn recently turned 40 and released her fifteenth studio album, God’s Work. She has been on a promotional tour for the record that recently took her to New York City, and she took a moment to express gratitude for where life had taken her.

“Couldn’t have asked for a better way to release #godswork into the world. Blessed to be surrounded by the sweetest souls, who worked so hard to make it happen,” she captioned the post.

The trip comes after Paris addressed the speculation surrounding her fertility after her mom Kathy Hilton claimed her daughter was “struggling” to conceive her first child with her husband.

The 41-year-old took to her Instagram Stories to dismiss her mom’s comments, revealing she and Carter were always planning to start their family after their first wedding anniversary which they celebrated in mid-November.

Paris also clarified that she is not experiencing fertility issues and has lots of “healthy embryos”.

Paris addressed the rumors

“I’m getting tons of messages of people asking me about when I’m having a baby,” she wrote. “The truth is. My husband and I wanted to enjoy our first year of marriage together as a couple and we were always planning on starting our family in 2023.”

Revealing that the couple are using IVF, Paris added: “IVF is always a journey for everyone but we’re so fortunate that we have lots of healthy embryos ready and waiting to be part of our Cutesy Crew!”

Paris concluded. “As everyone knows I have an extremely busy work and travel schedule, but nothing gets me more excited than becoming a mom in 2023. Thank you for all your kind messages!”
