Valerie Bertinelli is feeling thankful for the support of her nearest and dearest this holiday season.
The actress has been enjoying her first Christmas since confirming she’d finalized her divorce from Tom Vitale in November.
Bertinelli wrote on Instagram, “Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎄 As we end another year, I cannot help but feel grateful for the love and support of my family and loved ones. ✨
“There’s nothing quite like spending time with the people who matter most, and I hope you all can do the same this holiday season. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the special moments we share with our loved ones and the joy and warmth they bring to our lives. 💕
“Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year! Love, Valerie ☺️”
As part of her divorce settlement, Bertinelli was required to fork over $2.2 million to Vitale, ET previously confirmed.
She filed for legal separation on Nov. 24, 2021, before filing for divorce on May 12 in Los Angeles Superior Court. She cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the dissolution of the marriage. The pair had tied the knot back in 2011.
