(Newser) – Supermodel Paulina Porizkova is back on the market for the first time in almost 30 years. "As a bicycle, my husband and I no longer pedal in unison. So, we're ditching the bicycle," the 53-year-old wrote on Instagram Wednesday, describing herself as "peacefully separated" from former Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, 74, for the past year. Peacefully, indeed: People reports the couple cuddled up at Ocasek's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction last month. "The love we have for one another is so wide and deep it's practically intangible, and that sort of love can never disappear," Porizkova's post reads. "Expect to keep seeing happy family photos." The couple, who have two adult sons, would've celebrated 29 years of marriage in August.
