Paulina Porizkova congratulates sons on graduating after loss of Ric Ocasek

Porizkova celebrated sons Jonathan, 27, and Oliver, 23, for graduating "on time with honors" this year after losing their father, singer Ric Ocasek, in September 2019. She wrote in an Instagram post that she knows her late ex-husband would be "so incredibly proud" of their sons graduating this spring "after having the worst year and a half of their lives."

Porizkova added: "This weekend, I want to send out well-wishes and congratulations to everyone whose children are taking a big step into adulthood. But my heart goes out to all of us who are attending such momentous occasions as graduations - with someone crucial missing. Their absence in these joyous occasions is probably even more keenly felt. They SHOULD be here. There is such a painfully felt hollow where they belong."
