Donald Faison and his kids are sticking together following the death of his ex-wife, Lisa Askey Faison. On Wednesday, the actor shared a sweet, black-and-white pic of the family. Though Faison didn’t quite make the cut (selfies can be challenging like that), his 18-year-old fraternal twins, son Dade and daughter Kaya, and his 16-year-old son Kobe are front and center as the crew grabs dinner at a Los Angeles eatery. Though no one is smiling, they do seem to be in relatively good spirits considering the circumstances. “Last night in LA,” the Scrubs star captioned the shot.

The 42-year-old actor first broke the news to the world of his ex-wife’s death with a heartfelt social media post days earlier. Technically, it was a repost from his son Dade, but Faison added his own tribute to the late Askey as well. “My son Dade is very brave,” Faison began. “Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother. Lisa Askey Faison.” Though the star admitted he and his ex had experienced their share of disagreements, his affection for her was clear. “She and I never really saw eye to eye but one thing we did share was our love for our children. RIP Lisa. You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May god bless your soul with light and love,” he wrote.

Faison and Askey met when she was a nursing student and Scrubs hadn’t quite taken off yet. At that point, he was probably best known for roles in Clueless (both the movie and the TV series), and he already had one young son named Sean (who is now 20 years old). Faison and Askey were married for four years, from 2001 to 2005.

After they parted ways, he married Jessica Simpson‘s bestie, CaCee Cobb. He and Cobb have been hitched since 2012 and share two children of their own, 3-year-old son Rocco and 22-month-old daughter Wilder.
