The Smash actress shares, “We both wanted it to last forever, and it’s a sad thing that it wasn’t able to go the course. Part of me will always contend with guilt that I wasn’t able to give my son the fantasy that my parents were able to give me.”
Messing, 44, says she and Zelman tried to make it work while working on opposite coasts for three years.
“We really tried. We made sacrifices and compromises, and in the end we both realized that we like the day-to-day domestic life. Now we are co-parenting beautifully … We had Thanksgiving together. In my mind, we will be a nuclear family forever.”
