Nancy Dolman, the wife of actor Martin Short, has died. She was 58.

“Sadly, we can confirm that Martin Short’s wife did pass away,” said the star’s rep, Camille Kuznetz. “We do not have any other comment to make.”

Early Saturday, Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to an emergency call for medical help at the couple’s Pacific Palisades home, though no one was transported from the residence, said LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey.

The Father of the Bride star and his wife had been married for 30 years and has three children: Katherine, 26; Oliver, 24; and Henry, 21.

Martin Short and wife Nancy Dolman, who passed away last weekend.

Dolman and Short, now 60, met during the 1972 Toronto production of the musical Godspell, in which the actress was Gilda Radner’s understudy.

In 1981, Dolman appeared in a recurring role on the primetime TV series Soap, though she retired from show business in 1985 to raise her family.

May she rest in peace.
