Singer Jewel is staying positive about her marriage split, insisting she's "heartened" by the way she and her estranged husband TY MURRAY are planning their divorce.

The star announced the break-up on her official website in July (14), revealing she and the retired bull riding champion had decided to divorce after six years of marriage.

She wrote, "Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together. For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves."

She added, "Our dedication to our son is unwavering and we are both committed to being the best partners in raising our son. Due to the spirit in which we have gone about this separation, we trust we can remain dear friends who hold each other in high esteem, which is so important to us as parents - as we wish only what is best for our son."

Now, two months after the post, Jewel reveals things are going well and both she and Murray are committed to doing what's best for their three-year-old son Kase.

She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "It's (divorce) such a difficult thing... but I feel really fortunate for the position that he and I are in because we're such great friends and we're really great parents, and that's the number one thing we care about, so I really feel so blessed to be in that position."

"We really feel like this is the best thing for us; we feel it's the best thing for Kase and that everybody, hopefully, will win if we can go through this in the right way, which I feel really heartened that we are."
