The happy couple had an eight-year-old son, Cruz, in 2014 and a two-year-old daughter, Dove, in 2020.

She also wrote a long message in which she expressed that she had reached out to Mecklenburg to become closer to her and Isabella.
The media personality called the acceptance of her proposal “a true testimony that we wanted to live in harmony and be the best for Bella.”
Then the businesswoman talked about her feelings about co-parenting with her husband’s ex-partner.
“After the few times we’ve spent together, I consider her a friend, not just a ‘parent’.” Because not only do we both love Bella, we want to learn and grow with each other,” she wrote.
In conclusion, Mellencamp advised her fans, who have also faced co-parenting situations, to become closer to the biological parents of their stepchildren.
“If you ever feel like you have to call, send an invitation, show vulnerability – do it. It’s worth it,” she wrote.
