The high school sweethearts, who announced their separation in March, are parents to a 3-year-old boy named Julian.

Us Weekly reported that when Thicke returned to the stage to perform his new single, “Get Her Back” he swapped his usually flashy style for a more reserved, heartfelt rendition. The song was penned for his wife.

"Alright, y'all, help me get her back," Thicke told the crowd. With his eyes glistening, Thicke began his song which includes lyrics like, "I gotta treat her right" and "I'm gonna go get her, go get her, go get her, go get her back."

He then asked the crowd to put their hands together, as he fell onto his knees and crooned, "I gotta get her, I gotta get a girl tonight."
