Blair Underwood and his significant other Desiree DaCosta are throwing in the towel. The couple shared a joint statement to Instagram Sunday to declare that they are splitting following 27 years of marriage. The couple shares sons Paris, 24, and Blake, 19, and daughter Brielle, 22.
Blair Underwood and Desiree DaCosta Call It Quits
“After a huge measure of thought, prayer, and work on ourselves independently and by and large, we have concluded to end our marriage that started 27 years prior,” the statement started. “It has genuinely been an excellent excursion,” Underwood and DaCosta proceeded. “Our proudest achievements are our three staggering children. Three souls to which God depended on us. We keep on being awed and lowered by the endowments of parenting. We put their general benefits first and will keep on doing as such. We will keep on being the awesome friends and co-parents and have the most extreme respect for each other as we set out upon this new chapter of our lives, independently.”
The exes finished up their statement saying, “We thank you just for your support consistently and we submissively request privacy and comprehension during this new season of change.” Underwood recently complimented about his relationship with DaCosta in a 2008 meeting with Oprah.com, during which he pondered watching his father fill in as the breadwinner to his mother while growing up. “I needed to be her rock, her protector,” the L.A. Law actor said of DaCosta. “On the off chance that she had an issue, I needed to settle it. I thought that is what was generally anticipated of me.”
Yet, Underwood said that gratitude to DaCosta, he finally discovered that he didn’t have to fix every last bit of her problems, but simply support her when she required him to close by. “I was mitigated too; she didn’t anticipate that I should consistently have an answer for her,” he said. “She wasn’t coming to me for a repair. She simply required a shoulder to cry on.”
