Paula Patton has finally come out of hiding.
The actress has been so little seen since her big split from husband Robin Thicke in February that it's not an exaggeration to say some have been concerned about her whereabouts. (Even Thicke said he hadn't seen her in months in June.)
But the worrying was put on pause Monday night, as Patton quietly popped up at an Emmys after party.
Wearing a short, long-sleeved black dress with sheer panels, Patton, 38, was reportedly all smiles as she chatted with Emmys attendees. In a video obtained by E! Online, Patton cheerfully waves to the press as she attends the shindig.
The actress has been comparatively quiet about her much-chronicled breakup. While Thicke has spoken extensively about their separation and even wrote an album in an attempt to woo her back, Patton has only spoken briefly about the trouble with Vanity Fair magazine.
"We've known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there's a deep love there - always was, and always will be," she told the publication in May.
