It was only in December when Jodi and Braith Anasta announced their trial separation.
“I don’t know why people think I ever changed it [back],” the actress and model said.
“I want the same last name as my daughter. I have no problem. I am an Anasta. It’s a done deal.”
Throughout the separation, both Jodi and her former husband, Braith Anasta, have spoken so beautifully of one another, not creating any more animosity.
Watch these women open up to what they’d say to the one who got away. (Post continues after video.)
“It’s really hard for me to comment on that stuff [her separation] without causing a drama, to be honest,” Jodi says.
But, “We are still supportive, and we can do things as a family.
“[Braith’s] an amazing father, he really is. He has been a great support to, too. I feel pretty lucky having that relationship at the moment, and especially with it being so early, I feel lucky to have that.”
The interview follows her daughter’s, Aleeia, second birthday where Jodi and Braith took her to the zoo together.

Both Braith and Jodi have acknowledged the break-up was not a surprise to them, with Braith saying they were at different stages in their life.
“I think Jodi did sacrifice her career for me when we got married and I’m very grateful for that…I wanted more kids and it wasn’t for her at that time in her life,” he said in an interview last year.
