Actress Debra Messing and her husband, writer-producer Daniel Zelman, have separated after more than a decade of marriage, according to news reports.

People first reported that the couple – parents to a 7-year-old son, Roman – separated privately earlier this year. The news was shared publicly this week.

Messing, 43, and Zelman, 44, met when both were pursuing graduate degrees in acting at NYU during the early 1990s. They married in September 2000.
