Valerie Bertinelli just shared a series of throwback photos with Eddie Van Halen on her Instagram stories after the legendary guitarist died of cancer this week.
Valerie and Eddie had been married for more than two decades and had a son, Wolfgang Van Halen.
Bertinelli contained photos from the first night she and Eddie met.
Earlier this week, Valerie Bertinelli paid tribute to her late ex-husband Eddie Van Halen following news of his death. She was married to the legendary guitarist, who had lost his battle with cancer for decades, and they shared a son, Wolfgang.
"In all of your challenging lung cancer treatments you've kept your great spirit and that mischievous grin," she wrote on Instagram. "I'll see you in our next life, my love."
While the couple divorced in 2007, they maintained a strong relationship, and Valerie offered fans a glimpse into the special memories they shared. The Food Network star recently posted a number of throwback photos on her Instagram stories, including one from the night she met Eddie 40 years ago when her "life changed forever."
In the first picture, Valerie shared a snapshot of her hugging Eddie that night. The former couple first teamed up in 1980 after Valerie's brothers convinced them to come to one of Eddie's concerts so they could get a chance to get backstage.
"I looked at the 8-track tape on the back of my Corvette and saw a picture of Ed. I said," Oh, yeah, I'll go. He's a cute guy, ”she told Oprah Winfrey in 2008.

During the concert, Eddie and Valerie hit it off immediately, and Eddie called her after his concert and asked to meet. "So I went out and visited and we never broke up from then on," Valerie told Oprah.
The first day they met, she shared another photo of the two with their arms around each other. Eddie smiles with a bag of M & M's, and Valerie titled the photo, "Shreveport, L.A., Aug. 28, 1980."

They both kept up to date in 1980, and a few months later Valerie and Eddie were having the best time of the year together for the holidays. She shared a picture of her and Eddie next to a Christmas tree with the picture "Christmas 1980" on it.
Eddie smiles at the camera and wears white pants with miniature guitar decorations. Valerie wrapped her arms around her boyfriend at the time.

In the next picture, the couple was sitting in a coach at the Los Angeles Forum in 1981, likely before or after one of Eddie's concerts. (Look at Valerie's smile! They look so happy.)

In 1981 Valerie and Eddie officially tied the knot. Ten years later they welcomed their son Wolfgang. On Thursday, 1993, Valerie shared a cute photo of her, Eddie, and Wolfgang riding a carousel in Central Park, New York.

Although the couple eventually divorced after problems with drugs and infidelity, Eddie and Valerie stayed close together. Valerie, who is now married to Tom Vitale, even dated Eddie until the end. "I'm so grateful that Wolfie and I were able to hold you in your final moments," she wrote.
Despite their difficulties, it is clear that these two had a special bond. Rest in peace, Eddie.
