Hilary Duff and Ex Mike Comrie Celebrate Son Luca’s 4th Birthday Together

03/21/2016 at 03:00 PM ET

Hilary Duff and ex-husband Mike Comrie are still a family when it comes to son Luca Cruz.

The former couple came together to help Luca ring in his fourth year over the weekend, as documented on the Younger star’s Twitter profile.

Posing with the happy little boy – who wore a cool dinosaur tee for his big day – both Duff, 28, and the NHL player, 35, looked happy.

“We are so proud of this boy,” Duff wrote.

The star also shared a photo of Luca alone, writing alongside the image, “You….are magic my little big boy.”

She added, “Happy 4th birthday. My heart just explodes for you.”

Duff and Comrie split in early 2014, but didn’t file for divorce until over a year later. Their divorce was finalized just last month.

At the time of their split, Duff’s rep told PEOPLE that the pair remained “best friends” – something that seemed mostly true throughout the first year of their breakup, as they even vacationed together as a family.

“We are a unit and we’re going to be a unit for the rest of our lives,” Duff told PEOPLE of co-parenting in April 2015.

Even with Comrie still in the picture, Duff has said that being a single mom is hard work. “When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty,” she told Redbook in late 2015.

She added of balancing her mommy duties and Hollywood career, “It’s hard to say that you really can have it all. I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family.”

I applaud them for keeping a united front with raising their son. It mustn’t be easy dealing with an ex, even if the relationship ended on good terms. Their son seems happy. Bravo for them!
