The Canadian actress, 48, who starred in sci-fi hit Species, shared a post to Instagram to pay tribute to her ex-husband.

She shared a few snaps of them together, captioning the post: “There are no words Darius… only Love Love Love. Forever Janam.”

Natasha finished the post with the quote from Mother Teresa: “I have found the paradox that if you love until it hurts there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

The pair had briefly split in 2010, but reunited and announced their engagement only a few months after.

Their marriage, which took place in 2011, lasted two years before they filed for divorce.
