The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik announced the end of her 9-year marriage to Michael Stone via Kveller Wednesday. And the mom-of-two is sure to say their “hands-on” attachment parenting is not to blame.
“After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to ‘Irreconcilable Differences,’” Mayim writes.
The Blossom alum, 36, says they did not come to this decision lightly.
“Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children,” she shares. “It is not something we have decided lightly.”
But don’t be quick to blame attachment parenting for their split.
“The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose,” she says.
She adds: “The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that’s what we are focusing on. Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain.”
Mayim concludes by saying, “We will be ok.”
The couple were wed in August 2003 in California. They are parents to sons Miles, 7, and Fred, 4.
