Dan Reynolds is providing a glimpse into the text exchange that changed everything.
In the clip, he revealed that he and his wife “hadn’t talked in seven months” and he was “driving to the lawyer’s office to sign the divorce papers,” when he received a message from her “that turned my perspective upside down.”
“She said she didn’t need to own me to love me. She loved me without expectations.”
He said they then “ditched the lawyers and went to lunch.”
“It felt like the first date again. We called off the divorce,” he went on to say.
“Then this guy came around,” he added of son Valentine. The two are also parents to twin daughters, Gia James and Coco Rae, as well as daughter Arrow Eve.
“I wrote this song after I got that text,” he said, referring to the Imagine Dragons song “Follow You.”
“have you ever gotten a text that changed your life?” he captioned the post.
Late last year, he opened up about his medical diagnosis.
