They spent Christmas together after deciding it was best for their children.
But there was no such luck for Arnold Schwarzenegger during the spring break, as Maria Shriver flew out solo for a holiday with their children.
The glamorous television presenter touched down in Maui in Hawaii for some family time on the paradise island.
Reason to smile: Maria Shriver was spending a fun spring break with her children in Hawaii
However only two of the couple's four children had flown out with the 56-year-old journalist, which suggests their counterparts had stayed at home to spend time with their father.
Maria was there with her youngest daughter Christina, 20, and 14-year-old Christopher.
The former looked in fine shape, and wore an inviting ensemble of black top, blue jeans, oversized sunglasses and gold shoes.
Just like her mother: Christina looked uncannily like Maria with her sunglasses on
Responsible adult: The journalist made sure she led her children from the front
Total Re-call: Christopher may have been giving his father a ring after landing safely
Her brother meanwhile looked far more like his father, keeping his bulky frame under wraps beneath a blue T-shirt and baggy tracksuit trousers.
There had been rumours Maria was ready to forgive Arnold and take him back, despite the fact she filed for divorce after it emerged he had naughtily fathered a child with their maid.
Holiday time: Mira and her children looked ready for a break
No airs or graces: The two Chrisses were left to pull their own luggage
However the Terminator star seemed to pour cold water on the rumours when he mentioned their divorce when chatting to fellow beefcake Mario Lopez on Extra.
He said: 'We work together even though we're going through a divorce. We make sure that the kids grow up to be really good human beings.'
However he did offer a ray of comfort to fans of the couple as he also said he had been 'spending a lot of time on [his] personal life.'
Missing a certain someone? Perhaps Maria was wishing she had Arnold for company
No time wasted: Christopher didn't wait to get into the water and make the most of the sea
