Directing the rest of her message to her new-ex, Handler continued: "Jo — you blew my creativity open, my lust for working hard again, being on the road again, and you reminded me who I was and always have been, and my feet have never been more firmly planted in the ground."

"This is not an ending. It’s another beginning, and it’s a comfort to know that I am still loved and love this man the way the sun loves the moon and the moon loves the sun," the funny lady wrote, insisting to Koy: "YOUR PERSON IS COMING."

Handler concluded her emotional note by asking fans to "please continue to root for both of us because you never know what life will bring."

The couple's break up likely came as a shock to many, as there were no rumors circulating about trouble for the two behind closed doors. Nevertheless, it's clear the comedians still have love for each other — so could a reconciliation still be on the table?

Handler and Koy had been friends for years after first meeting on the blonde babe's talk show. The friends-turned-lovers sparked dating rumors in September 2021 when they were seen showing some major PDA at a Los Angeles Dodgers game.

Since going public with their romance, Handler and Koy have done little to hide their love for each other, often offering glimpses of their romance to their respective Instagram accounts.
