**La La and Carmelo Anthony have been married since July 2010 but split in April 2017. Late last year, the duo reportedly reunited. Now the “Power” star is opening up to Us Weekly about the challenges of married life following their reconciliation.
“You know, marriage is hard,” the 39-year-old told the publication at the taping of VH1 Dear Mama: A Love Letter to Mom in Los Angeles on May 2. “I tell everybody that, and it’s one day at a time, and that’s what we’re doing. Just trying to take it one day at a time.”
An insider close to the former MTV host previously revealed that “La La and Carmelo have recently reconciled and they truly still love one another,” adding that “It’s so obvious when they’re together.”

According to the tea spiller, the couple’s 12-year-old son, Kiyan, was a vital factor in their decision to reconcile. “They also both want what’s best for their son and are committed to being a family,” the insider said.
La La previously had this to say about life following her spilt from the NBA star, “I learned that life is filled with ups and downs and it’s just about how you react to them,” she told Us Weekly back in December. “You can get down on yourself and just be like, ‘Oh, the world’s ending,’ and just, you know, really be hard on yourself, or you can say, ‘I’m not the first and I won’t be the last, this happens to people,’ you know, ups and downs, and you just gotta keep pushing forward. I proved to myself that I can overcome a lot of things that probably would have broken some people.”
Meanwhile, Anthony recently revealed that her Mother’s Day plans include “[Staying] home, watching TV, having breakfast in bed is always exciting because you are constantly on the go, so to just shut down for a day is always a treat.”
She added, “[Kiyan] is my best friend. He’s there for me through everything. I learn from him. We learn from each other. And I’m just honored to be his mom. He’s 12 years old. He’s turning into a great student, great athlete, great person, and that means a lot to me.”
