As for JP's dating life, Ashley said she'd love for her estranged husband to meet a nice woman and she's "all for it" if it makes him happy.
"If JP introduces someone to me, that means it's serious. I would be very happy for him. Honestly," Ashley insisted.
"If JP is happy that means my kids are around someone that is bright, uplifting, loving, etc etc."
Ashley also shared how she and J.P. are currently doing a "50/50 time share" with their children in which they each have "2 days with, 2 days without" Fordham and Essex as well as "alternate weekends," according to People.
Although Ashley said she and J.P. broke up in part because they "see the cup differently," it appears they're still on good terms because they communicate three to five times a week.
Ashley said she plans to remain "honest and open" with the kids about her divorce and hopes to maintain stability for them in homes filled with love and fun.
"If I'm ever in a situation where I'm torn about what to do or say, I ask myself.. what is the right thing for the kids... I let that guide me," Ashley explained.
She advised other mothers going through a divorce, "It's easy to get caught up in our emotions. But let the kids' well-being guide your actions."
Now that Ashley is on her own again, it seems she's happy and in touch with her own needs.
"I lost a huge part of what I loved about myself towards the end of my marriage," Ashley confessed in her Q&A. "I feel like myself again. Don't have an explanation for it tho."
J.P. filed for divorce from Ashley in Miami-Dade County in Florida on July 28, according to court records obtained by E! News.
J.P. told the website there's "no fighting" as they proceed with a divorce and they remain "friendly" as they co-parent their children.
Ashley and J.P. first announced in October 2020 they had decided to split up and "separate ways" after nearly eight years of marriage.
"It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that, after months of separation, JP and I have amicably decided to go our separate ways," Ashley captioned a photo of the couple in happier times on Instagram.
"We created the most beautiful children and shared memories that will never be forgotten. Our differences have taken a toll on our relationship and after years of attempting to repair the damage, we've decided that it is in our family's best interest to create new and separate lives for our children."
According to J.P.'s Instagram posting, The Bachelorette couple had already been separated for months prior to their big announcements.
"I have written and rewritten this post dozens of times and each time I feel the same level of disbelief and extreme sadness," J.P. wrote.
"While I realize that this will come as a complete shock to everyone, I can assure you that this is something that has been developing in our relationship for quite a while. It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that after months of separation, Ashley and I have amicably decided to live our lives apart from one another."
In his posting, J.P. also insisted the couple had done "absolutely everything" they could to save their marriage and they have had irreconcilable differences for years.
"Please please please know that there is no one to blame, that there's no event that triggered this decision, that no one is the victim, and that we've done absolutely everything we possibly can to try to salvage this marriage," he wrote.
"I think we've both come to realize that we are just two very different people, with very different personalities and perspectives, who just don't see eye to eye on a lot life fundamentals, those which are the building blocks for a happy and healthy marriage."
