Debra Messing: I Feel Guilty Over The Divorce

Stars arrive at the 79th Annual Drama League Awards in New York

Debra Messing opens up on her divorce from writer Daniel Zelman in the June issue of More magazine. The couple – who were married for ten years – split in June 2012. They have 9-year-old son Roman.

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.”
