And a spokesman for the actor told the publication: “Jack and Lauren remain the best of friends and their main focus is the care of their children.”

The pair hit a rough patch back in 2011, after a DNA test revealed he was the father of a baby boy, following a one-night-stand.

However, the brunette beauty forgave him and they later announced their engagement.

Jack’s son with model Sammy Milewski suffers from Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC) – which causes sudden, painful and random paralysis of a portion of the body.

And his mum recently revealed heartbreaking news about the tot, following a recent health scare.
