Amid 27-year-old actor Sophie Turner’s unexpected split from 34-year-old boy-bander Joe Jonas (you can read all about that here), single supermodel Emily Ratajkowski offered some words of affirmation for women who are finding themselves divorced in their thirties. “Congratulations,” the 32-year-old model said in a 51-second TikTok video on September 6. “Congratulations.”
“So, it seems that a lot of young ladies are getting divorced before they turn 30,” Ratajkowski said just one day after Jonas officially filed for divorce from the Game of Thrones star. “As someone who got married at 26 [who] has been separated for a little over a year [at] 32, I have to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything better.”
Ratajkowski divorced her former husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, sometime during the summer of 2022 following cheating rumors. The exes share a one-year-old son, Sylvester Apollo Bear. Turner and Jonas, meanwhile, share two daughters.
“Being in your 20s is the trenches,” Ratajkowski continued in her TikTok video. “There is nothing better than being in your 30s, still being hot, maybe having a little bit of your own money, figuring out what you want to do with your life—everything—and having tried that married fantasy and realizing that it’s maybe not all it’s cracked up to be and then you’ve got your whole life still ahead of you.”

Emily Ratajkowski concluded her message by speaking directly to young divorcées who are “feeling stressed” about their single status, telling them, “It’s good” and offering two sincere “congratulations.”
In fact, “good” didn’t quite cut it. Ratajkowski ended up captioning her musing, “Personally I find it chic to be divorced by the age of 30.” With the divorced-before-30 club including women like Miley Cyrus, Drew Barrymore, Evan Rachel Wood, and, now, Sophie Turner, who can argue with her?
