Brooke Burke-Charvet is most concerned with how divorce impacts her children, as they grow up “knowing that sometimes a family falls apart”.

The 42-year-old Dancing with the Stars alumnus has four kids total, two with her ex-husband Garth Fisher and two with her current spouse David Charvet.

The star separated from plastic surgeon Garth in 2005 and she is very aware of the split’s effect on their daughters.

"I regret having a marriage that didn’t work, because divorce is 'forever' for children," she revealed in an interview with New You magazine.

"I regret that my two oldest daughters have to grow up knowing that sometimes a family falls apart. That's my heartbreaking life lesson. But I'm happy that they can see love now."

Brooke thinks motherhood is an incredibly enlightened experience, as she learns something from her brood all the time.

She appreciates the fact that they are all extremely unique individuals, and this has helped her find interrelatedness with all of humanity.

"I've learned how to be flexible, and how to listen. I've learned how to accept people for who they are,” she explained.

“They have different personalities – what works with one fails with another. I've learned to speak a different language with each of my children."

The star has been happily married to French singer-and-actor David, 41, since 2011.
