Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer Finalizes Divorce from David Haffenreffer

WT24 Desk

Lara Spencer has finalized her divorce from David Haffenreffer, E! News can confirm, eonline.com reports. The Good Morning America co-host and her ex “are still close friends,” says a source. Spencer and Haffenreffer, a CNN reporter turned real estate broker, announced in March that they were separating after 15 years of marriage. At the time, Spencer, 46, and Haffenreffer, 47, told Page Six (which was first to report the news of the split as well as the finalized divorce) that their children Kate, 10, and Duff, 13, “remain our top priority,” adding, “We will raise them and care for them together.”

That certainly seems to be the case! Earlier this week, Lara Instagrammed a smiling photo of herself, Haffenreffer and their kids at a Yankees game. It’s clear that Spencer, who just renewed her show Flea Market Flip with HGTV, is very family-oriented. Part of that likely comes from the close relationship she had with her own mother and father through the years. “Everything I’ve done I can trace back to their encouragement and watching them lead by example,” she said in a 2012 interview with Greenwich magazine. “They never ever lost hope when I was making zero money and people said, ‘Forget it. Go do something attainable.'”

Spencer tries to mirror her own parenting style after her mother and father’s, which means encouraging Kate and Duff to pursue their passions—no matter how crazy they might seem! “I want them to dream big,” she told Greenwich mag. “That’s what my parents did for me.” As she also told Family Circle, the best lesson she’s taught her kids is “the one my mom taught me: do your best, and don’t beat yourself up if you don’t succeed.”

“Kate and Duff aren’t afraid to experiment and try different things, and I really love that about them,” she added. And Spencer’s kids encourage her, too. “Up to a point,” she said. “I’ve been told in no uncertain terms that I’m forbidden to dance or sing on TV. Sorry, kids, but I’ve gotta be me!”
