The once happy couple, however, decided to end their relationship after dating for nearly seven years in 2003 and started the custody battle for the twins. 

Beverly explains how her life suddenly changed after the separation:

“I got pregnant at 48, delivered six weeks after I was 49, and by 51, I was looking at a landscape as a single parent,”

It took years for the actress to forgive Pacino after a bitter custody battle that went on for more than a decade. She finally came to a state of forgiveness, and as of now, the former duo shares joint custody.

She addressed the source, how she and Al got past all the tension and became friends:

“The key thing is creating a new history, and moving on from whatever dissolved that relationship to the new one of co-parenting”.  

She further added:

"The most important thing I’ve learned is how vital acceptance is. We all have a desire to change things that we don’t like, but you can’t change another person. You have to accept differences and all the things that led to a breakup in a way that allows you to move forward. And out of my support system and people I know and love, I’ve created the ideal partner."

Well, at the end of the day, both of them loves their children, and it looks like they would do anything for their happiness.
