Sunny, for her part, had this to say: “We’ve grown up. I don’t know, we needed that time, obviously, we did. We were just a little… a bit confused. It takes a long time to realize what’s important and figure out your own problems. I just think we were apart for so long and the love didn’t go away.”
Awwww! How sweet.
