Aww! We love when exes can still get along!

On Wednesday, Melanie Griffith took to Instagram to pay tribute to her ex-husband Antonio Banderas on his 56th birthday. The two were married for TWENTY YEARS before officially divorcing in July of 2015.

In Mel’s sweet b-day post, she commends the actor’s rugged looks while also declaring her undying love. Considering the duo are coparents to 19-year-old Stella Banderas, this gesture of goodwill is especially poignant!

Check out the adorable message (below)!

Well, we’re not going to argue with the actress on the “ruggedly handsome” part! LOLz!

While the birthday boy has moved on with new girlfriend Nicole Kimpel, we bet he appreciates all the love from his ex. The former couple did share decades of companionship — you can’t just throw that away!

Unfortunately for Melanie, the handsome celeb didn’t wish her a happy birthday (at least not publicly), which was on August 9. It’s kind of neat how the exes birthdays are just one day apart!

On another sweet note, M.G. shared a throwback pic of Banderas posing alongside her son Alexander Bauer just a few days before the b-day message. We guess the Spanish icon has been on her mind lately!

Take a look at the precious snap (below)!

Happy belated birthday, Melanie and Antonio!
