"Neither she nor my father came from money, and they appreciated everything they had," Shaw said. "A lot of big stars these days, they forget. But they never did."

The couple shared Shaw and son Anthony. The "Beauty and the Beast" star was also stepmother to Peter's son David, whom he shared with his ex-wife Mercia Squires

Shaw told the outlet that the family made the hard decision to sell the home because "it’s something we all need to move on."

She added, "That’s what Mom would want."
