This Mom Thanked Her Ex-Husband's New Girlfriend on Facebook & It's Awesome
This mom's praise and appreciation for her ex's new girlfriend is #goals.
This story probably doesn't end the way you think it will.
Here's how it begins: Audrey Loving has a 4-year-old daughter named Riley. Here's the two of them:
The 24-year-old mama split from Riley's father Corey Henry—who she met when she was just 18—after the two spent several years trying to do the whole long-distance relationship thing. Now Audrey has full custody, but Henry often swoops in to visit or take Riley on weekends.
Recently, Henry found himself a new girlfriend, which means she now gets to spend a lot of time with Riley, too. That probably makes Audrey crazy...right? Actually, no. And in fact, she recently gave the new lady in Riley's life—Whitney McGraw—a major shout out on Facebook.
"This is my daughter's father's [sic] gf," she wrote next to a pretty cute picture of Whitney with Riley. "The sweetest thing ever! I'm super thankful for her because when she visits her dad she feeds her, takes care of her, buys her gifts, and basically takes care of her like her own."
Pretty amazing! And it doesn't end there.

"Why do all these moms act so spiteful and jealous towards the other women??" Audrey continued in the post. "A kid can have two moms because in my eyes the more people that love her I'm happy!!! Ladies grow up and focus on being a good mom not worrying about what's on your baby daddy's girl friends Facebook and Instagram while your kid is right next up you. Love more hate less!!!"
Not surprisingly, this generous mama's welcoming words have gone crazy viral, thanks to the incredibly inspiring message behind them. "My post has reached all over the world and I'm absolutely blown away!!!" Audrey explained in a recent a follow-up. "I LOVE YOU ALL keep being amazing and let's make this world a better place."
