Actor Ewan McGregor may have been estranged from wife Evan Mavrakis, but their daughter made sure that the couple had a reunion of sort on her graduation day.

Clara, 22, couldn't smiling ear to ear as she celebrated her photography degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, with both her parents in attendance.

She posted the picture on Instagram and said: “Thank you to my wonderful parents for giving me the gift of a full education.”

McGregor filed for divorce from Mavrakis earlier in January citing irreconcilable differences. October 2017 was when it was first reported that the couple had split up and chosen to go their separate ways after being married and together for 22 years.   

This was also around the same time that photographs of McGregor kissing Mary Elizabeth Winstead, his 'Fargo' co-star surfaced.

At the Golden Globes this year, McGregor delivered a rather strange and controversial acceptance speech where he thanked both his ex-wife and current girlfriend. 

"I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years, and my four children Clara, Esther, Jamyan, and Anouk. And I've always loved being an actor and I love hanging out with actors and I got amazing actors to work with on this," he shared. 

"There wouldn't have been Emmit Stussy without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg and Carrie Coon and there wouldn't have been a Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead, so thank you very much," he continued. 

McGregor and Mavrakis met on the set of British TV series, Kavanagh QC and got married in the year 1995. They also share four daughters Clara, 22, Jamyan, 16, Esther, 15, and Anouk, 6.

Fifteen-year-old Esther made headlines of her own after she posted a song to Instagram that seemed to be about her parents' divorce and how McGregor had moved on so quickly.   

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Mavrakis filed her response at the time as the divorce and stated that she is asking for sole custody with visitation for her ex.

"It’s disappointing and upsetting but my main concern is our four children are okay," she said about her divorce to The Sun.  

McGregor took his relationship with Elizabeth Winstead public in November last year and was seen walking hand in hand with her in Los Angeles. Since then, the couple has been spotted out together on multiple occasions. He was last seen supporting Winstead at the premiere of her movie 'All About Nina' in New York.
