Melanie Griffith covers up Antonio Banderas tattoo with new ink for her 4 kids

Melanie Griffith has chosen to remove a tattoo dedicated to her ex-husband Antonio Banderas and replace it with a new tattoo featuring the names of her four children. The actress was spotted in Los Angeles wearing a black tank top and white maxi skirt, proudly displaying her new ink. Griffith’s new tattoo covers up the old heart-shaped tattoo that symbolized her love for Banderas.

The crossword-style tattoo now showcases the names of Griffith’s children: Stella, Jesse Johnson, Alexander Bauer, and Dakota Johnson. Stella is Griffith’s daughter with Banderas, while Jesse is her stepson from her first marriage to Don Johnson. Alexander is her son from her previous marriage to Steven Bauer. The new tattoo serves as a tribute to Griffith’s children and represents her love and devotion to them.

Griffith and Banderas first met in 1989 and got married the following year. They have since divorced but have maintained a friendly relationship. Despite their separation, Griffith still holds fond feelings for Banderas, as she posted a birthday message for him on Instagram two years after their divorce. Banderas has also expressed his continued love and friendship for Griffith, stating that she will always be a part of his family.

Melanie Griffith is no longer wearing her heart on her sleeve — at least not for her ex-husband Antonio Banderas.

The “Working Girl” star stepped out in Los Angeles Monday showing off some new ink, which covered the faint trace of her old heart-shaped tattoo that was dedicated to the “Puss in Boots” star.

Griffith’s more recent crossword-style tattoo features the names of her four children: daughter Stella, 26, whom she shares with Banderas, as well as stepson Jesse Johnson, 40, son Alexander Bauer, 37, and daughter Dakota Johnson, 33.

During the outing, the actress wore a black tank top and white maxi skirt paired with sandals and glasses.

She finished off the look with fingerless gloves and a black handbag.

Griffith and Banderas, 62, first met in 1989, but sparks didn’t fly until the two worked together on the film “Two Much.”

“It was very, very fast and very compulsive, but at the same time, we were tied at the time,” Banderas recalled in a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer.

“We tried as much as we could to be respectful. We just thought this may be one of those, you know, infatuation moments that we have when we shoot movies because we got to play together a couple, so let’s just go home.”

The lovebirds tied the knot the following year and welcomed their daughter, Stella, shortly after.

Griffith filed for divorce 18 years later.

Griffith even shared a birthday shoutout for the “Legend of Zorro” actor in 2016 — two years after they divorced.

“Happy Birthday to my ruggedly handsome ex husband @antoniobanderasoficial 🎉🌟👋🏻🎉🌟 I will always love you💋,” Griffith captioned a photo of the two on the red carpet.

Banderas shared a similar sentiment with People in 2019.

“Melanie is not my wife anymore, but I think she is my best friend,” he told outlet.

“I love her and will love her until the day I die. She’s my family.”
