Debra Messing Splits from Husband




Will & Grace star Debra Messing has separated from husband Daniel Zelman. Her rep confirms that the couple “privately separated earlier this year after a 10 year marriage.”

Debra Messing, 43, and Zelman have one son together, Roman, who is 7 1/2-years-old.

“The decision was mutual, and they remain supportive of one another and committed to raising their son as a family.”

Debra Messing and Daniel Zelman first met as students at New York University. Zelman, who is also an actor and producer, dated Debra Messing for 8 years before popping the question.

Debra Messing told People in 2004 that “I want my child to be like my husband. He is sensitive, really intelligent, really funny ... but solid. He has a good sense of perspective.”

Messing, who has starred in such movies as The Wedding Date and Along Came Polly in addition to her television work, will next appear in the musical TV series Smash.
