This is such a sweet image in such a tough time for the entire family.
The separated pair were spotted enjoying a holiday brunch at Coast Cafe at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica with their kiddies, and were apparently snuggled into a corner booth…
But rather than seeming awkward or cold towards each other, one onlooker claims the former couple were happily chatting away!
And ok, we know that TALKING between people who are no longer romantically involved isn't indicative of a sexy reconciliation…
BUT the pair were supposedly seen SMOOCHING in early March, so we would not be surprised if they were trying to work things out!
Hey, if Maria can get over the fact that Arnie hid a secret child from her for YEARS, then more power to her!
