Former Baywatch babe Brooke Burns has mended her broken relationship with ex-husband, NIP/TUCK star Julian McMahon, after breaking her neck in a swimming pool accident.

The actress admits her ex became a tower of strength when she needed him most, and the couple, who have a young daughter Madison, found a way to put the past behind them.

She says, "He was the first one at the hospital and he really came through for me and we had a great talk and family's family and a piece of paper means nothing and that's what we kinda came down to."
