LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Elizabeth Chambers is doing everything to make sure that her kids do not see their father in a bad light.

During a sneak peek of 'Grand Cayman: Secrets in Paradise's episode 2, airing on April 16, the 41-year-old spoke about being a gatekeeper to her two children, Harper, nine, and Ford, seven, from negativity concerning their father and her ex-husband Armie Hammer, 37, US Weekly reports.

"I'm fiercely protecting my children, which is why we're still here [living on the island]," Chambers told co-star Julian Foster on the reality show, which was filmed in early 2023.

Elizabeth Chambers says her children should think of their dad Armie Hammer as a 'superhero'

The mother of two added of her young ones, "They have — thank God — no idea about what is going on. My children are visibly happy. They should think that their dad is a superhero. And to be fair, he has been to them. He's been the best he can be."

The BIRD Bakery founder then told the cameras, "I don't speak negatively about him in the press. I don't speak negatively about him to my children. Because nobody wants a daughter with daddy issues, and nobody wants a son with daddy issues."

"They should think their dad's a superhero," she added. "And that's a beautiful thing that I will never, ever, ever diminish or take away."

Elizabeth Chambers reflected on her bitter divorce

Chambers and Hammer married in 2010 and later announced their separation in July 2020. Following their split, Hammer was accused by multiple women of abuse, which he denied.

On the series premiere of 'Grand Cayman', Chambers reflected on their "very public divorce that was riddled with scandal," saying, "The life that we had planned for years basically shattered. That was a really painful period of time."

She said having her divorce play out "on a more public platform" was an "absolute hell" and she "wouldn't wish it upon anyone."

"A lot of the trauma that I have experienced in the last two years is behind me," said Chambers on the show. "And now I think I'm very much at a place where I'm ready for a fresh start on the island."
