Fans of Robin Thicke and Paula Patton were heartbroken when they announced they would be parting ways (their split seemed to come out of nowhere), but now, after two years, the former couple appears to be on incredibly good terms.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Patton posted a sweet picture of herself and Thicke, along with a moving caption about their 10-year union.
“Memories…I always try to only remember what was fun and made me smile,” she wrote. “My friend showed me this and it took my breath away. We were babies and we had a beautiful baby. What an amazing time in my life. No regrets! Celebrating this amazing life we get to live never knowing what’s coming next. Love is always the answer. @robinthicke#throwbackthursday.”
Patton and Thicke met in 1991, when they were teenagers, before marrying in 2005. Five years later, they expanded their little family and welcomed their son, Julian, into the world. So it’s safe to say they’ve shared a lot of beautiful memories together, which is why it’s so wonderful that they both can be so mature and look back on their time together fondly — something fans are thrilled about.
Comments on the picture include one from myperfectdreamer, who wrote, “This right here is what grown people do. Forgive, remember the good times and keep moving forward.”
“Grown people need to learn this, its not all about betrayal or wishing bad on your ex,” mandy_bae19 shared. “Its about the good times they spent together nothing more or less. god bless you Paula.”
Commenter soulbeautiful1 also applauded Patton for the way she feels about her past relationship and hailed her as an inspiration: “You truly embody what a beautiful souled woman is…. This is just inspiring & you are a wonderful human being Paula.”
And we couldn’t agree more. There is a lot we can learn from the way Paula Patton has chosen to handle her split and move on with her life, don’t you agree?
