While Foster announced in the speech that she is single, which we take to mean that she and Bernard are no longer together romantically, they are sure to still be in other’s lives, as they have always been the co-parents of their two sons, whose full names are Charles Bernard Foster and Kit Bernard Foster, according to their plaques at the Saban Center for Health and Wellness, to which Foster has donated a large sum of money and has an aquatic pavilion named after her.
