Arnold Schwarzenegger: Maria Shriver and I 'Get Along Really Well' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In an interview with "Entertainment Tonight" airing Monday, Arnold Schwarzenegger dishes about co-parenting with ex Maria Shriver.

"We get along really well. We have a great time raising the kids together," the former California governor told Christina McLarty on the set of his upcoming film, "The Tomb."

"The most important thing is that the kids are doing well, and Maria always has been an extraordinary mother and always has worked with the kids very closely," he said. "I was always more off working and being on location and she was doing the work. Together, we always were a good team in that."

It's not the first time Schwarzenegger has complimented Shriver on her parenting skills. In a March 2012 interview with"Extra's" Mario Lopez, the 64-year-old action star called Shriver a "terrific mother," adding, "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."

Shriver filed for divorce in July 2011, nearly two months after revelations emerged that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with former household staffer Mildred Baena.

Despite reconciliation rumors -- the New York Post reported in March that Schwarzenegger and Shriver had been attending couples counseling -- sources told TMZ in April that Schwarzenegger had made "peace with the likely end of his marriage." The couple got married in April 1986 and have four children together.
