Miguel and his estranged wife Nazanin Mandi reunite while she recovers from eye surgery

They shocked their fans by announcing their separation in September after a 17-year relationship and three years of marriage.

But Miguel and his estranged wife Nazanin Mandi threw their followers for another loop on Tuesday when she shared a video of the two reunited.

The 36-year-old singer–songwriter seemed to be in high spirits as he joined his 35-year-old model wife while she was recovering from LASIK eye surgery. 

Back together? Miguel, 36, and his estranged wife Nazanin Mandi, 35, reunited two months after announcing their separation in a cute video posted to her Instagram as she recovered from LASIK eye surgery on Tuesday

Earlier on Tuesday, Nazanin hinted at her surgery as she got some steps in on her treadmill in the morning.

‘Well today is exciting… doing something I’ve wanted to do forever [smiling emoji with glasses]. But first .. fitness,’ she captioned the boomerang. 

Later, the occasional actress shared a humorous snap of her friends posing for a selfie with her lying on the operating table in the background.

Afterward, Nazanin shared a closeup of her bloodshot eye as she recovered from the laser surgery, which is used to correct several visual conditions, including nearsightedness.

She sang the praises of her ophthalmologist Dr. Ehsan Sadri, writing that she felt ‘so safe the entire time’ while adding that there was no pain.

But later in the day she shocked her 1.7 million Instagram followers by posting a video to her Instagram Stories showing herself goofing off with her estranged husband Miguel.

She and the R&B star were grinning ear to ear while trying on eye patches.

She wore a leopard-print item over one eye, while Miguel (born Miguel Pimentel) wore a plain black patch over one of his eyes.

He sported spiky hair and wore a snake-print shirt while she looked casual in a black hoodie and showed off her lovely dark curls.

‘He has LASIK sympathy pains for me lol couldn’t have me be the only one wearing an eye patch,’ she wrote, adding a heart at the end.

Nazan added Tuesday’s date to the post to seemingly confirm that they two were spending time together two months after they announced their separation. 

However, she didn’t appear to have explained what brought the couple back together, nor did she confirm if they were romantically linked again or if they were merely friends.

In late September, their representative announced via People: ‘After 17 years together, Miguel and Nazanin Mandi have decided to separate and have been for some time now. The couple both wish each other well.’

The news came after Miguel wished Nazanin a happy birthday two weeks earlier with a touching note. 

The artist wrote: ‘Happy birthday to the most beautiful woman inside and out @nazaninmandi. Play more than words by extreme,’ adding a crown emoji. 

Interestingly enough, Nazanin shared a slideshow of professional snaps with two quotes included in the series.

One of them read: ‘Do right by me and ima be in your corner for life… lover or friend’ while the second one said ‘You gotta understand that everybody ain’t got the same heart and mind as you…’

She added her own caption to the second quote in her ‘SeptemberFeels slideshow’: ‘…And that’s ok. Once understood, you learn where to place people in your life… IF any place all. Empathy plays a key role for me…  perception is relative. When key values don’t align, I kindly position people where I see fit…’

Nazanin continued, saying that he took her took her apartment and put her in the shower as he went and got food for them.

Adding: ‘I apologized all night while he laughed, held me and said relax… I’m not going anywhere. Over a decade later, many life lessons and a few more puke filled nights lol he still got me.’
