“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.

Dan Reynolds Opens Up About His AS Diagnosis

Dan Reynolds is getting candid.

The 33-year-old Imagine Dragons frontman is opening up about his battle with chronic pain due to ankylosing spondylitis in an interview with Us Magazine.

“It got to a point where I couldn’t perform. I could hardly get out of bed. I went to different doctors and they didn’t know what was going on, or they thought they knew what was going on and they’d misdiagnosed me … until I finally saw rheumatologists who diagnosed me with ankylosing spondylitis — or AS — and put me on the road to recovery and really changed my whole life for the better,” he explained.

“It’s a battle that I have every day when I wake up. But I have a treatment plan, I have people on my side. I have a community behind me,” he continued.

“I still have flareups here and there, but I have a plan of action,” he added.

He also talked about partnering with the Monster Pain in the AS campaign.

“It’s such a mouthful, and it just sounds so intimidating…millions of people are suffering from it. The whole goal is this catchy slogan, kind of tongue in cheek, to bring it to the mainstream, so when people go to the doctor, they might have an idea.”

Another star revealed she is suffering with chronic pain.

Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds Explains Why He's a 'Unique' Mormon

Imagine Dragons star Dan Reynolds is opening up about his faith.

The 31-year-old rocker discussed reconciling his faith while also being an outspoken ally for the LGBTQ community in an interview with People.

“I’m a very unique Mormon. I hate that people have to be pigeon­holed. Some days I don’t believe in anything — some days I’m probably more atheist than your atheist friend. And some days I want to pray to God,” he said.

“A lot of times, people are raised in something that they had no say in. There are many people who are raised in extremely religious homes that had no say in the matter: That’s just their culture that they were born into. So to judge people based off that is a very dangerous thing. I think people need more room to just be unique but also be a part of a culture if it feels good for them, but also have their own beliefs within it. I just hate generalizing.”

“I have family and friends I grew up with who are LGBTQ and Mormon or religious. I watched their constant struggle. They were told to change something about them that is unchangeable,” he added.

Imagine Dragons recently spoke out against LGBTQ conversion therapy live at an awards show. See what they said!
