On her part, Sunny had this to say, “We grew up. I don’t know, we needed that time, obviously, we did. We were just a little bit…a little mixed up. It takes a long time to realize what’s important and figure out your own issues. I just think we’d been apart for so long and the love wasn’t going away.”
Awwww! how sweet.
