Peter Cook still wants to be friends with ex-wife Christie Brinkley, he told the New York Post.
After five days of divorce court that ended with a surprise settlement, Cook doesn’t seem to have hard feelings for the former supermodel.
“I’ll never regret marrying her. We had a great time for 10 years. I’ve got two beautiful children,” he said, accompanied by new girlfriend Suzanne Shaw.
He also told the Post that someday he hoped he and Brinkley could give away daughter Sailor, 10, at her wedding together.
The trial found Cook admitting to having an affair with then-18-year-old Diana Bianchi and spending thousands of dollars on Internet porn. He received a $2.1 million settlement, with custody of the couple’s two children, Jack, 13, and Sailor going to Brinkley.
Cook claims he was surprised by the outpouring of support he’s received and is ready for the future.
“I go back to where I started from,” he said. “I am an architect and a father.”
