France's former first lady Valerie Trierweiler made her first public appearance Monday just days after French President Francois Hollande confirmed the couple's split.

Trierweiler, who suffered an emotional breakdown earlier this month when news leaked of Hollande's affair with actress Julie Gayet, said she was feeling "very good" Monday as she visited a hospital and a slum in Mumbai.

"This visit has been in my diary for the last six months and we have been planning it for the last year. I wouldn't have missed it for the world," the 48-year-old told reporters, according to Agence France-Presse.

Hollande announced his separation from his girlfriend of eight years on Saturday:

"I have ended the shared life I had with Valerie Trierweiler," the 59-year-old politician said in a brief statement, keeping in line with his earlier remarks stating that "private affairs are dealt with in private."

Hollande's relationship with Gayet was detailed in early January in a seven-page spread in Closer magazine, which included photos of a man reported to be Hollande visiting Gayet's home.

After the story ran, Trierweiler was hospitalized as a "preventative measure." Despite reports claiming that she attempted suicide, sources said Trierweiler was actually prescribed 10 days of rest as treatment for depression and fatigue.

Trierweiler and Hollande reportedly had lunch together Thursday to finalize the details of their breakup and are "on good terms," according to AFP.
