"I think given the givens, he’s doing very well," she began. Then, the mom of three shared some of the words of comfort she provides her three kids with Willis, daughters Tallulah Belle, 29, Scout LaRue Willis, 32, and  Rumer Glenn Willis, 35.

"What I’ll share is what I say to my children, which is, it’s important to just meet them where they’re at and not hold on to what isn’t, but what is," she shared. "Because there’s great beauty and sweetness and loving and joy out of that."

While speaking to PEOPLE in 2021, Rumer credited her and her sisters' well-being to Moore and Willis for "cohesively co-parenting."

"I'm incredibly grateful that both of my parents have made such an effort my entire life that I never felt like I had to choose between them," she said at the time.

"I have a lot of friends who grew up with parents who got divorced at a young age and I watched their parents, like, pit them against each other or have to choose between holidays," Rumer continued.

She added, "And I didn't have to do that, and I feel so grateful that my parents made it such a priority that we could be a family, even though it looked different."
