Celebrity event planner and star of WE tv's My Fair Wedding David Tutera, 47, will be raising his biological daughter Cielo solo -- while his ex Ryan Jurica, 35, will raise his own biological son Cedric -- Cielo's fraternal twin -- also as a single father.
The couple, who were together for 10 years, broke-up while a surrogate was carrying their twins.
"It was a very confusing time," Tutera, 47, tells People, adding that he and Jurica never discussed keeping the twins together. "The divorce happened so quickly after the [embryo] transfer was successful that there wasn't time to mourn the loss of raising a second child -- I was mourning the loss of my relationship."
Tutera is based in Los Angeles, while Jurica lives in Connecticut.
"We've exchanged photos. The mudslinging has ended. And I hope that one day, Ryan and I will be friends," Tutera says about the current status of their relationship. He also stressed that it's his priority for his daughter to have a relationship with her brother.
"We can't pretend like this doesn't exist for them -- that's completely selfish. It is our responsibility to do the right thing for our children," he says.
