Even though their marriage is over, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith still love each other. After calling it quits on their 19-year relationship in December, Griffith took to social media with a sweet birthday message for her ex-husband Wednesday, proving that not every marriage ends on bad terms.
“Happy Birthday to my ruggedly handsome ex husband @antoniobanderasoficial,” she wrote alongside an old red carpet photo of the two of them. “I will always love you,” she added.
Fond feelings appear to remain on both sides between the famous exes. The day before Griffith’s public display of enduring affection, Banderas also took to social media with a birthday message for Griffith, whose Aug. 9 birthday happens to be the day before his own.
"Happy birthday Melanie," the actor wrote in Spanish with a photo of them and their daughter, Stella. "A loving hug from Marbella."
The mother of three recently spoke with People about her life after divorce, admitting that it’s been an interesting and challenging time.
"It's just sort of nice," Griffith (who is mom to Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson). "My kids are all great. They're beautiful people. I'm single, and lonely, and bored, and confused—but then at the same time, totally curious. It's almost like I have to throw myself out of the nest."
