Arnold Schwarzenegger Divorce: Talks Co-Parenting With "Terrific Mother" Maria Shriver

In an interview posted online Monday, Arnold Schwarzenegger dished to "Extra's" Mario Lopez about co-parenting with estranged wife Maria Shriver.

The former California governor told Lopez that he's been "spending a lot of time on [his] personal life, making sure the children grow up well-adjusted and that they get a great education."

"Luckily, Maria has been a terrific mother," Schwarzenegger added. "We work together even though we're going through a divorce... we make sure that the kids grow up to be really good human beings."

Despite their dramatic split, the New York Post alleged last week that Schwarzenegger and Shriver had been attending couples counseling in an attempt to stave off divorce. The same day, TMZ photographed the couple having lunch and shopping for furniture in L.A. -- possibly for Shriver's new $12.2 million dollar Brentwood home, which she reportedly moved into in late February.

Shriver filed for divorce in July 2011, nearly two months after allegations emerged that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with former household staffer Mildred Baena. The couple were married in April 1986 and have four children together.
