Actor Blair Underwood and Desiree DaCosta announced Sunday (May 30) they were ending their marriage after 27 years. “It has truly been a beautiful journey,” the post reads in part. Underwood and DaCosta share three children together, two sons, Paris, 24, and Blake, 19, and a daughter, Brielle, 22.
“After a tremendous amount of thoughts, prayer & work on ourselves individually & collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago,” the statement started.
“Our proudest achievements are our three incredible children. Three souls to which God entrusted us. 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.”
“We thank you all for your support throughout the years & we humbly ask for privacy & understanding during this new season of change,” the statement concluded.
