The ring is officially off. Paula Patton arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday, Feb. 26, with a smile on her face -- and her wedding ring noticeably missing.

Just two days after announcing she and husband Robin Thicke were separating, the 38-year-old Baggage Claim star appeared to be in good spirits as she made her way through LAX. Patton looked fashionable in a black leather and fur jacket and tight, high-waisted skinny jeans. She hid behind large sunglasses, but happily smiled at photographers.

On Monday, Feb. 24, Patton and her husband of eight years announced in a joint statement to Us Weekly that they have decided to separate. "We will always love each other and be best friends," the parents to son Julian, 3, said. "However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."
