“It’s been hard after 35 years, very hard,” Tom shared WSJ. “I keep thinking, ‘Oh, God, I have to call Richard,’ or I need to send him a note about this. And he’s not here.”

Richard, a renowned fashion editor and journalist, died of “natural causes after a long illness” back in September at the age of 72.

Tom and Richard first met in 1986 and married in 2014. In 2012, the couple welcomed son Jack, who is now nine-years-old.

Also in the interview, Tom talked about his and Jack‘s new morning routine.

“Until recently, I had Richard to help me out in the mornings. It’s been a little bit of a struggle the last month because he would normally get [Jack's] breakfast on school days while I was getting dressed,” Tom explained. “I’ve gotten pretty good at it.”

“But it’s a challenge to get him up, dressed, get his lunch made, get his lunch packed, get his breakfast done, get all my things done, and then I drive him to school at 7:45,” Tom continued. “But it also means I’m at my office by 8:10, so I get a good start to the day.”

If you missed it, Tom Ford recently shared his thoughts on House of Gucci, and he was not a big fan of the movie.
