Brittany Cartwright is prioritizing her son amid her separation from Jax Taylor.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, The Valley star, 35, spoke about her decision to take time away from her husband, 44, adding that the two are focused on being the best co-parents they can to son Cruz, 2.

"We're doing a really good job going back and forth," Cartwright says of their co-parenting. "And I'll also take him to the house and play and we'll swim one day or have him play on his play set and we'll do different things."

"Jax will take him to Sky Zone, or he'll take him to the park one day. But that's the most important thing. So I think it's honestly been better because we aren't fighting in front of him. And for me, I think that's what is most important, right now. Because that's why I had to get him out of that situation in the first place."

In February, Cartwright and Taylor announced that they were taking some time apart, with Cartwright sharing the news on their joint podcast When Reality Hits.

As she explained that she and her former husband are currently living separately, Cartwright said that she is most concerned about their son Cruz.

"I'm taking it one day at a time," Cartwright said of the separation. "I don't know what the future holds, but right now my focus is on being the best mom to Cruz and I love you guys. Pray for us and everything will be just fine. We’re good."

This past summer, Cartwright and Taylor shared with PEOPLE that they were thinking of expanding their family.

"We're definitely gonna have more kids. At least one more," Taylor said at the time. "We're just really busy right now. It's been a very busy summer. We're very blessed."

In addition to being a hands-on parent, Taylor said at the time that he and Cartwright were doing well.

"Brittany's just an amazing person," he shared. "She's my best friend, she's my wife. You know, we have such a solid relationship. I can't speak highly enough of her. She's kind of like the rock of our family."
