Since announcing her divorce last week Debra Messing has been dating a new man in her life, which happens to be Smash co-star Will Chase.
The 43-year-old may have love and that’s a positive step she needs right now since her life has been miserable for so long, according to sources connected directly to the actress.
Life for the former couple lasted 10 years, and it’s been difficult for her husband as well, who is already moving on.
Messing announced her separation from Zelman, 44, last week. But here’s the strange part about it: They later issued a statement that they intent to remain together with their son before transitioning into new separate living arrangements. In other words, the couple are still living together for the sake of their child. It is works, then so be it, but it seems difficult to move on otherwise.
The couple have one son, 7-year-old Roman.
Chase, meanwhile, has also been making big moves in his personal life.
The actor, 41, recently separated from his wife, Broadway actress Stephanie Gibson, though a source told Us Weekly that the impending divorce is a separate situation.
“Will didn’t break up Debra and Daniel,” the source said. “It was over before she met Will.”
Chase and Gibson have no children together, but the actor has two daughters from a previous marriage.
“Debra and Will have been together for about six weeks,” the insider continued. “She is completely smitten with him.”
