  • When relationships or marriages end, people tend to keep something from the experience.
  • Model Emily Ratajkowski is keeping her wedding ring following her divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard.
  • Emily is not the first celebrity to admit to keeping something from a previous relationship; Nikki Bella kept a wedding dress from a prior engagement.

It's not unusual for someone to keep something from their previous relationship or marriage. Take Nikki Bella, for example, who kept her wedding dress from when she was engaged to John Cena. Joining her is model Emily Ratajkowski. While speaking to Tommy Dorfman on a Monday episode of her High Low podcast, the My Body author opened up about her divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard and what she did with the wedding ring.

According to the Daily Mail, the ring - a two-carat princess-cut diamond and a three-carat pear-shaped diamond on a yellow gold band - is valued at $50 000 (R853 115).

"I love a divorce story," Emily began. "I don't think divorce is a sad thing."

She added, "Every time I hear a divorce story or when I see the news, I have to remind myself, 'Oh, that's sad'. I literally say to people, 'Good for you'."

"I know a lot of people are unhappily married for a long time because they're so afraid of divorce and I don't think that's a good way to live."

When asked where her wedding ring from her marriage with Sebastian was, the multi-hyphenate answered, "I still have it."

Emily concluded, "Cheers to divorce!"

Page Six broke the news in July last year that the couple was separating after four years of marriage following allegations Sebastian had cheated on Emily. Two months later, Ratajkowski filed for divorce.

The former spouses share a son, Sylvester Apollo, who was born on 8 March 2021.
