Ex-flame: In May 2021, the long-time couple shared that they had separated after 27 years of marriage
Underwood married DaCosta in 1994, the same year his legal drama LA Law ended after eight seasons.
On May 31, 2021, the duo shocked the fans with a joint announcement that they had separated.
In a lengthy message shared via Instagram, they said they will remain ‘best friends’ and keep focusing on their kids — Paris, 25, Brielle, 23, and Blake, 21.
The statement reads, “After a tremendous amount of reflection, prayer, and work on ourselves individually and collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago.”

The message continued, “Our proudest accomplishments are our three children. Three lives God has entrusted to us. We continue to be in awe and humbled by the blessings of parenthood.”
We have always put their best interests first and will continue to do so. We will continue to be best friends and parents and have great respect for each other as we begin this new chapter of our lives, separately.
Blair went on to thank his fans for their “support throughout the years” and ask for “privacy and understanding during this new season of change”.

Reflecting on his parents’ decades-long marriage in 2008, he called them his “heroes in love” and said they taught him that relationships can be “enduring and strong”.
Watching his father work as the breadwinner in the family, Underwood said he wanted to be “his wife’s rock, her protector”.
If she had a problem, I wanted to solve it. I thought that was what was expected of me,” he told the outlet.
But a poor conversation with his wife leads him to the knowledge that his then-wife didn’t need him to fix her problems, but instead listened to him when he vented.
The star concluded, “I was relieved that she didn’t always expect me to answer for her. She wasn’t coming to me for a fix.
