On Sunday, Blair Underwood shared a post on Instagram and announced he and his wife, Desiree DaCosta, are ending their 27-year marriage.

“After a tremendous amount of thought, prayer & work on ourselves individually & collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago,” the former couple wrote in a joint statement.

It was DaCosta who encouraged Underwood to join Sex and the City to portray the love interest of Miranda, played by Cynthia Nixon.

“I wasn’t sure. When the offer came in, I mentioned it to my wife and she’s like, ‘No, you need to do that. Why are you even pausing? You want to go do that,” Underwood said during an interview with Paige Six last year. “I thank her for that.”

The former couple asked for “privacy [and] understanding” during “this new season of change.”
