When Jenni "JWoww" Farley and ex Roger Mathews spilt in 2018, things got nasty — but the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star revealed that the pair have since been able to get back on better terms as they care for their kids, daughter Meilani, 7, and son Greyson, 5.
"At the end of the day, you have to put the kids first," she told Entertainment Tonight. "And he's very understanding with my schedule changing with filming. I'm not a 9-to-5 person."
In the new season of the MTV show, which kicked off on January 6, the reality star was able to bring her two kids along for a trip to the Florida Keys during a break from school. And though that time may have originally been Mathews' week to have the tykes, he had no problem reworking their schedules.
"He knows they're just going down there to live their best life with their virgin margaritas and piña coladas. And he doesn't mind," the mom-of-two insisted. "He's very understanding of that, and I make sure he gets them extra during the times that I have them, so we balance each other really well."
Making an appearance on the series alongside the New York native and her kiddos is fiancé Zack Clayton, who adores being a stepdad.
"We are truly a family," she gushed. "He's truly a role model for the kids."
The reality star also noted that the pro wrestler is "super hands-on, especially when it comes to Greyson," who has autism. "He wants to be a part of it every step of the way."
The tots had a ball on January 5, when Farley brought them to watch Clayton's show, which was the first time they saw him in action in an arena. Costar and best pal Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi also came out with her two older children, Lorenzo, 9, and Giovanna, 7.
