Garcelle Beauvais isn’t letting her recent divorce from Mike Nilon get her down. The actress is making "lemonade out of the lemons we got" referring to the shared custody of their fraternal twins Jax and Jadi, 3½.
Garcelle is thankful for her new role on the series "Franklin & Bash" because she has enough time to spend with her boys.
“I really wanted an ensemble cast so that I wouldn’t have to work every day so I could be with the boys too,” Garcelle, 44, tells USA Today. “Now that I’m sharing them with their dad, I don’t have them all the time, which is the biggest disappointment of my life.”
Fortunately, Garcelle has learned to enjoy every moments she spends with her family, including her 20-year-old son Oliver.
“Women feel so much pressure to multitask all the time,” she explains. “I’m trying really hard to be in the present and not be worrying so much about what I should have done or what I’m going to do.”
