Kelsey Grammer endured an "uncomfortable" family gathering on Thursday (13Jan11) as he introduced his estranged wife to his new fiancee.
The Frasier star split from his wife of 13 years, Camille, last summer (10) and is now engaged to marry his new girlfriend Kayte Walsh.
Grammer is currently battling his estranged spouse in court as he seeks to have the marriage dissolved quickly so he can exchange vows with Walsh. Camille has asked for his request to be denied until they reach an official divorce settlement.
The former couple put their legal woes behind them this week for the sake of their kids, with Grammer introducing Camille to Walsh for the first time.
Camille admits the meeting was frosty at first, but she eventually warmed to her former partner's new woman.
She tells Popeater.com, "I saw Kelsey and I met Kayte for the first time. It was a little uncomfortable at first, but then I met her and I shook her hand and I looked into her eyes and I thought, 'She's OK, she's nice.' ... It's really important for me and Kelsey to be friends and amicable for our children's sake. Because you know, we have to co-parent and that's the correct way to do it."
Grammer and Camille are parents to two children, while the actor has two other kids from previous relationships.
