Co-parents Jessica Marais and James Stewart have reached a huge family milestone

Little Scout is growing up!

By Jacqui King
In today’s adorable news, Jessica Marais and James Stewart’s daughter Scout is going to primary school!
Home And Away star James shared the gorgeous family photo with his five-year-old daughter and ex Jessica.
The 42-year-old captioned the sweet snap: “First step into big school... I think Jess and I are more nervous than Scout... Hah! Argh!”

Scout looks too cute in her stripes and overalls, and James and Jessica (probably accidentally) coordinated their outfits for the big day.
HAA co-star Emily Symons commented on the pic: "This is so lovely Jimmy, good luck to your beautiful Scout today. Big hugs for Mummy and Daddy too!”
James and The Wrong Girl actress Jessica are no stranger to sharing cute family pics:

The pair fell in love on the set of Packed To The Rafters, but called it quits on their relationship in 2015 after six years together.
Jessica and James' first priority is Scout
The two co-parent little Scout and regularly get together for family occasions. Jess opened up to Stellar magazine about their shared parenting duties.
“Luckily we try to manage and it’s not me on my own with her all the time. She has her father and his family, so we just do the best we can,” the 32-year-old said.
James agreed that their main focus is Scout.
“Once you realise it's about Scout, everything's easy,” he told Sunday Style.
“Jess and I have nothing to hide. I think dignity is the key. We are both out for each other's best interests."
Now that The Wrong Girl has wrapped up season two, Jess is putting Scout first before making any decisions about future acting jobs.
“I would love to go back and give it a go, but I just don’t know. It’s about fitting life in, and life with Scout, and we’re a split family and we have to all think of each other when we make decisions,” she told Stellar.
