The Wilson Phillips singer, who has three children with husband of 19 years Baldwin, said that she originally filed for divorce after panicking that their relationship was not what it used to be.
Phillip told Us Magazine: "I started to feel a little flat-lined, like I need more and want more, and I know we deserve more from our marriage.
"It became so about the children and so about my business, his business, and I missed him. I really missed him. I missed laughing together, taking our little vacations together.
"We had [son] Jameson seven years into our relationship, so we had a lot of time to hang out and be a childless couple, so I guess I was just really nostalgic for those days and being able to implement a little bit more into our lives now.
"We needed to prune like in the garden, and once we did some pruning, we saw the fruit again. So, I basically freaked out like a chick does. I totally flipped out. I filed for divorce.
"But, the truth is that we love each other so very much. We are best friends, and I think I needed to jump off the cliff in order to see what it would really feel like to make that decision, and I knew... that was not the right decision for me, not for my family, not for us."
