Just like that Melrose Palace star Josie Bissett is still in contact with her former husband although the marriage ended. And, a decade after her divorce, the feeling of being special for someone reignited for Josie, as she found love again.

Married Life, Husband, And Children

Josie Bissett was married to her then Melrose Palace co-star Rob Estes in 1992.

The couple first met while auditioning for a TV movie and after a yearlong dating, the couple swapped their vows and got married. Josie and Rob share two children; a son Mason True Estes born on 1999 and a daughter Maya Rose Estes born on 14 April 2002.

But, before she gave birth to any of her children, she had suffered a miscarriage in 1996.

Following the years, the couple realized that there was not much love left between them and so they decided to get a divorce. However, Rob revealed that it was Josie’s idea to get divorced and even requested Rob to leave their Seattle home for about seven months which he did.

Even after getting divorced, Josie, 48, and Rob, 55, stayed together just for the sake of their children. Rob explained in January 2006 as,

“I live in Seattle. I moved there because my soon-to-be ex-wife’s family lived up there, so we moved up there for the kids. Then after we had been there for two years, we split, but I will stay there because the kids love it.”

Their children got to spend equal time with each of their parents almost equally: the children used to stay seven days with their mother and seven days with their father, Rob. The process somehow helped Rob to be more mature. He said to the US TODAY in 2011, 

"The kids live with me for seven days and then with their mom for seven days. A big part of acting is being able to grow. Being with my kids and being a hands-on dad has definitely helped me mature."

Afterward, Rob is married Erin Bolte, a teacher, and a surfer. Josie’s ex-husband and his present wife share a son, but still, Rob manages to divide his time between his child with Erin and two children with Josie.

Plastic Surgery Rumors:

The mother of two children is still looking graceful; however, tabloids believe it is all because of a little help of a modern technology called plastic surgery.

People think that Josie might have given some touchups to her nose, forehead, augmented her breast a little bit more and had possibly made her face a little bit wider.

However, these are all just speculations of tabloids as Josie has not revealed any proof about having a plastic surgery whatsoever.

Motherhood; Reveals About Family Accident

Shortly before the preview of her movie 'Pregnant at 17' Josie had the chance to talk about her life a bit in an interview with Lioness Magazine.

In the film, the actress plays the role of Sonia Clifton, a married veterinarian, who wants to have a child. But, she suffers miscarriage and finds out she will never be able to conceive. The actress herself went through the same course of incidents as a young teenager and was quoted relating herself to her character, stating

“I was shooting ‘Melrose’ at the time I was pregnant. That’s just how I grew up, with a really big family. So I was super bummed and devastated. I got pregnant the first time we tried and [after the miscarriage] I could not get pregnant for two years. You don’t know what you don’t know. If you haven’t been through a miscarriage, you don’t know. You don’t know what death feels like until it happens. I get that feeling of what she (my character Sonia) went through. I tapped into that feeling of loss and hopelessness and wanting to become a mother.”

However, she currently is a mother of two, yet finding time for beloved children while living her dream is still a tough job for the actress who says,

“It’s really hard. I think all moms must feel it, but especially moms who have this drive to succeed. After I had Mason, that’s when I started writing books. I could not not create. I found a different way to create. I didn’t want to be on set and miss raising my child, but I also couldn’t just raise him. I had to fulfill that creative side of me. If I didn’t, I don’t know what I’d do with myself.”

Though, hard times, Josie fulfilled her duties as a loving mom.
