A young woman’s post praising her ex has gone viral.

Jessica Singleton from Chipley, Florida, is not with Jon Megason anymore, but has sung his praises when it comes to raising their son Pierson.

“This is my ex,” Jessica Singleton wrote on Facebook that has gotten more than 257,000 likes. “This right here is more valuable than gold. This is a man who doesn’t pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him. This is a man who buys a bundle of kids’ movies on Vudu so even I can enjoy them with my son in my own home. A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don’t have to load him up and go to the store.”

The post has several black and white photos of her ex, Jon Megason, with their son. The pair split up early last year, but have shown no hard feelings.

“In case I haven’t told you lately, I’m grateful for you,” she continued. The mum also urged other parents to do the same. “Stop giving excuses and come together for your children.”

“We have not always gotten along so well, it took us a long time to get here,” she told Us Magazine. “We played with trial and error until we found a schedule and whatnot that works for us.”

The post has been shared more than 137,000 times and garnered more than 17,000 comments.
