Patton: I’m doing well after Thicke split
Paula Patton says she has come out of her split from Robin Thicke even “stronger”.
The 39-year-old actress and 37-year-old singer announced their break-up in February 2014, after nine years of marriage.
And speaking about the end of the romance, Paula admitted that while she has found it difficult, she feels like she has now getting her life back on track.
“I’m doing really well,” Paula said during an interview on Good Morning America on Friday. “I mean, the honest truth is it has been challenging, but it’s been a year of growth.
“Lots of healing, learning about all new things. But I’ve come out of it stronger and my son’s happy.”
Paula and Robin are parents to four-year-old son Julian together. And the Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol actress added in the interview that the most important thing in both her and Robin’s minds is that their little boy is coping well.
“I feel like everything happens for a reason. And then you have to move on and grow from there,” she said.
“The thing is you can’t wallow in sadness or stay in bed when you have a child. And they’re so full of life and wonder. And he brings me so much joy.”
Paula has been keeping herself busy in recent months with work commitments, including a collaboration with designer Ellen Tracy.
And the stunning actress said the opportunity to work on a collection with Ellen came at the perfect time.
"It was kind of an amazing blessing," Paula said. "Ellen Tracy came to me and said, 'Would you like to be our brand ambassador?' And I looked at the clothing and -amazing. It's really well made, classic clothing that's affordable. But what I liked about it was that you could, like, add your own twist to it… you can make it as edgy or quirky as you want and add your personality to it."
