The actress stopped by The Meredith Vieira Show to talk about life after being in a relationship for so long and how she's coping with it all.
"You know I'm doing really well. It's been a long year and a lot of challenges but I've grown quite a bit and just getting used to change.
When the talk show host chatted about the challenges of accepting a new reality, Julian's mom agreed and shared:
"Absolutely it is and embrace it and just be thankful for everything I do have. I live in a place of gratitude and growing up in many ways I think. I moved from my parents' house to moving in with Robin and now I'm like becoming an adult at this old age. I'm really like a real woman now."
It's never too late to blossom into your own and we're so glad Paula is able to do that!
You got this, girl!

Robin Thicke already had to pay $7.4 million to Marvin Gaye's family after a jury decided his and Pharrell Williams' hit Blurred Lines infringed on the copyright of Got To Give It Up.
But this legal battle is far from over — and it looks like it's just getting dirtier!

Apparently the Gaye family are now trying to retroactively add on to their big win, claiming that rapper T.I. and Interscope Records should pay up too!
It's a move that Thicke's lawyers are — in no uncertain terms — slamming the fudge out of!
In an official statement, they called the move
Yes, you can now start feeling bad for Robin Thicke.
On the heels of Robin losing the Blurred Lines lawsuit on his birthday, it's finally official: Robin and his wife… uh, EX-wife Paula Patton will be divorced as of April 14.
The singer and the actress had been separated since February of last year, and then Paula filed for divorce in October, but only now we can say that these two high school sweethearts are legally no longer an item.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams may have lost their legal battle against the family of Marvin Gaye, but they aren't done fighting.
Robin and Pharrell are officially seeking to appeal the verdict — and they want you to know they're fighting for more than just themselves.

According to their attorney Howard King, declaring Blurred Lines is infringing on Got To Give It Up sets a dangerous precedent.
In a statement, King said:
What a terrible way to end a terrible year.
Robin Thicke hasn't had the best luck during these past 12 months, and it looks like the start to his 38th go around the sun isn't starting off much better.
That's because Robin and Pharrell just lost their Blurred Lines copyright lawsuit to Marvin Gaye on Tuesday… which also happens to be Robin's birthday.
Despite his musical defense, along with Pharrell, T.I., and even Paula Patton taking the stand, the jury found that the men behind the controversial song owe Marvin's estate $7.3 million!

That is a pretty crappy birthday present.
Following the verdict, Pharrell's team released a statement, saying:
Going through a split is rough enough, but going through one publicly has to be even worse.
Paula Patton is holding her head high and not letting her highly publicized split from Robin Thicke bring her down.

While the 37-year-old made various attempts to try and win his wife back — anyone remember the entire album, Paula — the actress kept silent on the matter…
The 39-year-old mother of one opened up to Good Morning America about her divorce from her husband of nearly 10 years.
Paula told Robin Roberts:
Blurred Lines may have been the most misogynistic song of 2013, but it was also undoubtedly a moneymaker.
In fact, Robin Thicke's
date rape anthem No. 1 song earned him a staggering $5,658,214, while featured artist Pharrell walked away with a measly $5,153,457.
And while the song saw a lot of profit for Paula Patton's ex, that may not be the case for long!
