'I feel so grateful, I can't really express the feelings in words.'

The love from family is beautiful-- no matter how it's packaged. Just ask Russell Simmons.

The 58-year-old music mogul got all the feels Wednesday morning with an Instagram post dedicated to his ever-growing blended family with ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons. Russell, who shares two children with Kimora, has been able to maintain his friendship with the former model and accept the changes within their family structure.

In his message, Russell wrote:


During their 11-year marriage, Russell and Kimora had two daughters together, Ming and Aoki. Kimora later had a son, Kenzo, with her former partner, actor Djimon Hounsou.

She went on to marry Goldman Sachs banker Tim Leissner in December 2013 and the couple welcomed their first child together, Wolfe, this past April.

Throughout it all, the family has made it work. And for that, we tip our hats.
