Blair Underwood and his wife of 27 years, Desiree DaCosta are getting divorced. The “Sex and the City” hunk announced on Instagram that he was splitting with the fashion designer after 27 long years together in a joint statement shared to their account Sunday evening.
The announcement came as no surprise considering Blair’s recent public apology for kissing another woman at an industry party earlier this month – but it still left fans shocked by how quickly things seem to have unraveled between them.
“After a tremendous amount of thought, prayer & work on ourselves individually & collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago,” the statement read.
“It has truly been a beautiful journey,” they continued.
The pair went on to praise their three children, Paris who is 24 years old, and Blake who is 19. Their daughter Brielle also was mentioned at 22-years-old.
“Our proudest achievements are our three incredible children. Three souls to which God entrusted us,” they wrote. “We continue to be awed & humbled by the blessings of parenting. We have always put their best interests first & will continue to do so. We will continue to be the best of friends and co-parents and have the utmost respect for one another as we embark upon this new chapter of our lives, separately.”
The statement concluded, “We thank you all for your support throughout the years & we humbly ask for privacy during this new season of change.”
Underwood gushed about his daughter’s graduation from USC earlier this month. He concluded the statement by saying, “We thank you all for your support throughout the years and we humbly ask for privacy & understanding during this new season of change.”
According to Underwood, 56, the reason he took on his iconic role as Dr. Robert Leeds in “Sex and the City” was because of DaCosta.
According to actor Patrick J. Underwood (56), Ariel DaCosta is why he accepted playing Dr. Robert Leeds from season two onward during “Sex and The City.”
He said, “When the offer came in, I mentioned it to my wife and she’s like, ‘No, you need to do that. Why are you even pausing? You want to go do that.’ I thank her for that.”
