Lawrence and Chandie have been co-parenting their two kids. 

While discussing co-parenting with his ex-wife with US Weekly, Lawrence said there is no excuse for being anything but kind. 

It didn't work out on a personal level, but they share two amazing people and got to put them first and set an example for their kids. 

And that he always tells his girls that they will always be a family even though they do not live in the same house.

How did Lawrence meet his third wife?

Lawrence is currently married to his third wife, actress Samantha Cope

While talking about their first meeting with People, the romantic couple shared that they met on the set of a Lifetime movie, “My Husband’s Secret Brother,” that Lawrence's brother Andrew wrote and directed. 

According to Lawrence, it was during a COVID time, and they were still trying to figure it out and had to recast four days prior. 

There were make-out scenes, and he was like no way because back in the early days, nobody knew what was going on. 

Samantha had just wrapped something else, and he was told that they were lucky to get her and that she was amazing, but until then, he didn't know who Samantha was, and he was like, No, this is not happening, he explained. 

He finally said ok but asked to cut all the make-out scenes. Their first scene was lying in bed next to each other like husband and wife. 

Cope thought he was grumpy and found him adorable at the same time because he was very reserved at the time. 

She even told her that he slept like he was in a coffin. He added,

"Anyway, that's how it began. It started busting my chops, and it was something special. When you meet the right person, you don't have to work at that, like communicating, because you communicate very similarly. Humor is the way we communicate".

Lawrence and Cope got married on the 1st of May, 2022, in California, after announcing their engagement in August 2021.

Lawrence welcomed a daughter with Cope 

Lawrence became a father for the third time, welcoming daughter Dylan Rose with his third wife, Samantha Cope, in January 2023

Lawrence, while appearing on Daily Blast Live, shared what it's like being a new dad. 

He said being a dad to a newborn is wild and that it's been an amazing journey, and doing it again at his rightful age of 46, he has a whole new perspective.

When he became a father for the first time at the age of 29, the cry would freak him out. 

He would not know what was happening and wanted to call the doctor every time the baby was uncontrollably crying. 

After getting through it, you realize that it's because they are either hungry or they have some gas, he explained.

"You are more comfortable with things, and things don't stress you out as much, and it's sort of interesting perspective to have this time around," he added.
