Former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan and her estranged husband Matt Barnes have had a rocky road in the media but it looks like they’re moving forward with Matt wishing the mother of his twin boys a very happy Mother’s Day.
In an open letter posted to his Instagram, the Memphis Grizzlies player wrote, “Wanted to wish @glogovan a happy Mother’s Day! Although we haven’t always been able to see eye to eye we’ve been able to remember what’s most important, & that’s raising two beautiful happy intelligent little boys.” He continued, “Thank you for giving me the two greatest gifts a man could ever ask for!! Hope you guys have a great day. Love you guys! Happy Mother’s Day to all the other mothers out there, without you there is no us!”
Meanwhile, Gloria’s alleged new boo and Barnes’ former teammate Derek Fisher posted his own photo of Gloria and her sons with the caption, “Hope you enjoyed a nice relaxing day today! You deserve it! Happy Mother’s Day @glogovan.”
While haters tried to spread the negativity into Matt’s comments he shut it down. He respectfully wrote, “The point is to have a great day. It is what it is. I’m over it, did what I had to do, and kept it moving.”
Big ups to Barnes for take the high road. We’re glad to see the estranged couple curbing their drama for the kids.
