More than 15 years after going their separate ways, Kate and her rocker ex came together to witness their son Ryder, 18, receive his high school diploma. In a photo taken from the graduation ceremony, the actress beamed as she stood next to Ryder and the Black Crowes musician.
“Today was a big day for our family,” she wrote in the caption. “A day you talk about about when your kids are little and say things like ‘hey, one day it will be 2022 and you’ll graduate from high school!’ As if that day is so far it is barely reachable. And then here we are!”
Calling Ryder “the most incredible young man,” Kate, who separated with Chris in 2006, added in a message to their son, “Raising you has been one of the great gifts and pleasures of my life. You bring so much to everyone’s life. You are kind, loving, generous, patient, hilarious and one of a kind.”
