You can all imagine how I felt when they walked in the room. It was awkward to see my ex after a lifetime together with someone else.

A clip uploaded online displayed the friendly ex-couple dining at Graycliff Restaurant in the Bahamas with their four children — 20-year-old Gia, 16-year-old Gabriella, 15-year-old Milania, and 11-year-old Audriana. Meanwhile, Ruelas, 46, sat beside Teresa.

Joe told the publication,

Teresa and I decided to be honest and remain friends with one another for the girls. Parenting should always be about giving your children the best outcomes for every situation. I believe we deserve to all be happy and our children will thank us for it.

He added,

I am genuinely happy for both Teresa and Luis and wish them the best!
