BUSY Philipps has split from husband Marc Silverstein as she opened up about their relationship.
The couple were married for 14 years before announcing their split.
The 42-year-old blew the bombshell on her podcast Busy Phillips Is Doing Her Best on Friday.
She said: “It’s been a really long time since Marc and I broke up and our kids know it, our families know it, our friends know it.”
Busy shared that the couple first split back in February 2021 and had been pondering how to go public with their breakup.
The actress explained: “Marc and I talked about it and when we first broke up we couldn’t even think about posting any of those statements – it made us sick, both of us, really sick. It’s a journey.
“The safest way Marc and I have ensured the privacy of our children, who we love so dearly, was by not involving the public.”
Busy and Marc had two children during their marriage: Birdie Leigh, 13, and Cricket Pearl, eight.
Busy added on her podcast, “…we love each other very much – very much! And we have these beautiful children together. And there are a lot of things that really work in our relationship.”
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Busy shared a video of her singing along to Just Be Simple from Songs: Ohia, which includes the lyrics, “How there’s really no difference between who he used to be and who he’s become..”
The Dawson’s Creek alum had been private about their marriage in the past, but she opened up about it in her 2018 memoir. This will only hurt a little, in which she revealed that she had sought support from another man as their marriage was on the rocks.
She wrote: “There was a man I was friends with, another father. We had lunch and such. text message written. A lot on the phone.
“Honestly, I had a crush on him. I like him. Maybe I even loved him?
Busy also once told Parents magazine, “… Marriage is always tough, but it’s especially hard when you have kids… You’re going to go through times when you’re not into it, but there always has to be one person who’s willing to fight .
“I’ve gone to Marc several times and said, ‘I can’t do this anymore. Something has to change, and it’s you…'”
Busy previously shared some details about her parenting life in 2021 as she revealed her eldest child is gay and uses the pronouns sie/her.
“Birdie told us at the age of 10 and we immediately … I mean obviously, I knew Birdie knew on her podcast.
She added: “So, Birdie, my out kid, prefer her/her. I screw up sometimes, but I also try my best.”
