Here, put this on first:
Okay. Now we’re properly prepared to face the latest celebrity split news: Malin Akerman and her hubby of six years, Roberto Zincone, are separating. Siiiiiiiiiiiigh. Double siiiiiiiiiiigh, even, given that the couple have an extremely young child—Sebastian, who was born in April.
Unlike a lot of celeb splits, there hasn’t been any indication that this one was on its way; Malin even said back in September that she and Roberto have never had a single fight. But at least that lack of fighting seems to be carrying through to how they’re handling the separation—a source revealed to Us Weekly, “It’s as amicable as can be, and they want to do what’s best for their son.” BUT: Maybe there’s hope! The source continued, “No one has plans to file [for divorce] yet. Honestly, Malin is not even ready to discuss it. It’s a very sad time for her.” I wonder if maybe just the stress of being new parents got to them, causing them to need a little bit of a break from each other?
Obviously we hope they reconcile, but we know that a lot of times splitting up is necessary; no matter what happens, we wish the whole family the best.
Although we kind of wish we didn’t have to keep putting on “Another One Bites the Dust” every morning. Can’t we all just get along?
