A post shared by Dr Jennifer Ashton (@drjashton)

The GMA star lost her ex-husband to suicide in 2017

While it has been incredibly painful for them all, Jennifer says she's not angry with him for leaving them.

"Rob loved Alex and Chloe more than he loved himself," she said. "For him to leave them shows how much pain he was in. How can you be angry with someone for being in pain?"
