Tracey Edmonds is feeling the love despite her recent breakup with longtime fiancé Deion Sanders.

Edmonds and Sanders, both 56, announced in joint social media statements on Sunday night that they recently called off their engagement, officially ending their relationship after more than a decade together.

"To EVERYONE who has been there for us, supported us, and shown us love...We have mutually decided that it is best for us to move forward in life AS FRIENDS and have made this decision with love in our hearts, respect for each other, and appreciation for the time we've shared together," the couple, who first announced their engagement in 2019, wrote over the weekend.

The next morning, Edmonds shared her gratitude once again by thanking her followers for a flood of supportive messages she said she received overnight.

“Fam, thank you for all of your beautiful posts, messages, texts, and calls. Even though I’m unable to get back to you right now, KNOW that I’m grateful for them,” Edmonds, a businesswoman and television producer, wrote in her grid post.

“Your love, support, and kindness REFUELS me! Sending everyone LOVE!” she added.

The post received heart emoji responses and messages of support from the likes of fellow media personalities Cynthia Bailey and Claudia Jordan. “Love you friend!” Jordan commented.

Edmonds shared another inspirational graphic on her Instagram story Thursday, which read: “Rise up and become the person you were meant to be.”

The couple first met at a movie premiere party in 2012 for a film Edmonds had produced. Sanders pursued Edmonds, first asking her to help produce his Deion’s Family Playbook reality series before the pair began to grow closer on set and soon started dating.

Edmonds shares two sons, Brandon and Dylan, with musician Babyface, while Sanders has five kids: two children with his first wife, Carolyn Chambers (daughter Deiondra, 31, and son Deion Jr., 29) as well as three children with his second wife, Pilar Biggers-Sanders (sons Shilo, 23, and Shedeur, 21, and daughter Shelomi, 18).
