Melanie Griffith has sent birthday wishes to her former husband Antonio Banderas, describing the actor as "ruggedly handsome".

Melanie Griffith has nothing but love for her ex-husband Antonio Banderas.

The Working Girl star may have split from the Spanish actor in 2014, but they have remained on good terms, as proved when she wished her former spouse a happy birthday on Wednesday (10Aug16).

Melanie took to Instagram to send her best wishes to the Desperado star, who turned 56, posting a throwback photo of the pair looking happy at a red carpet event.

“Happy Birthday to my ruggedly handsome ex husband @antoniobanderasoficial I will always love you,” she captioned the sweet snap.

Just the day before (09Aug16) Melanie turned 59, and Antonio also used social media to send the actress a heart-felt message.

He shared a picture of himself and Melanie along with their 19-year-old daughter Stella and wrote in Spanish: "Happy birthday Melanie. A loving hug from Marbella."

The former couple finalised their divorce last December (15), after almost 20 years of marriage.

Meanwhile, Melanie - who also has children Alexander, 30, and Dakota, 26, from previous relationships – recently admitted that even though she has experienced a lot of changes in regards to her personal life over the past few years, she’s trying to embrace it as best she can.

“I'm having a very introspective time right now,” she told People magazine. “It's an interesting time. It's just sort of nice. 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.”
