Keri Russell and her husband Shane Deary have been separated for months, she admitted this week. The actress, famous for her role in the '90s TV series Felicity, had been married for nearly seven years. "They have been separated since early summer," Russell's rep told People. "The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children."
Russell, 37, and Deary, a contractor, have two children: son River, 6, and their daughter Willa, who is almost 2. Keri Russell married carpenter Deary on Valentine's Day in 2007 during a secret ceremony in New York City.
After getting married the actress said: "Newsflash: It doesn't really change anything. Everything's the same. But I'm so happy. I'm with someone I really enjoy and respect and love hanging out with." Apparently, things have changed.
It's been a stressful time for the actress. She woke up at around 3 a.m. to find that a window and door was open and that her laptop, a Filson handbag, a necklace, and earrings. were stolen from her Brooklyn home. Russell did not see the intruders, but her 70-year-old neighbor found the burglar and gave a description to the police. A father and son were arrested in the area. All of the stolen property has been recovered.
Russell is currently filming her new TV show The Americans in Brooklyn. Season two premieres on January 30. Still, she finds time to be a great mom. "I ride my bike to work," she told Capitol File. "[It's] much closer to my family. It's the perfect job for a working mom." Good for Keri Russell! We hope that this split won't tear their family apart, but Russell's rep insists that things ended amicably.
