?Year 2009 was particulerly painful for actress Jane Kaczmarek. That was the year the divorce between her and Bradley Whitford, her husband of 17 years, was finalized. Going into the minute details of their divorce, the ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ alum and her actor husband married on August 15, 1992. They have three children Frances Genevieve, George Edward and Mary Louisa. Both husband and wife were pretty much in love and there was nothing missing in their relationship (or so it seemed). They lived happily with their children in Los Angeles until, the couple filed for divorce in 2009.
Jane claims that Bradley was the one who filed the divorce on the first place. Jane, who is also the founder of ‘Clothes Off Our Back’, stopped attending any charity event and award nights with her husband as they started the process of separation.
As per various reports, the Golden Globe nominee was heartbroken and declined to comment further on the divorce announcement back then. But she did say, “I used to believe that I could go it alone and as long as I had some fabulous boy on my arm, or man, and my career was sailing, that's all I needed.” The beautiful actress, aged 59 and her 55 year old partner’s divorce was finalized in 2009 and their wedding was officially over. According TMZ, The West Wing fame and the US and Them diva split their property equally and shared custody of their children as well.
Though the star tried very hard to hide all the pain inside her, she seemed quite sad after the divorce. After all, it is not that easy to break up a relationship of almost two decades. She didn’t seem interested in sharing her feelings, but she admitted, “It was a tough year. My husband filed for divorce. It was a very sad year.”
Now more than five years have gone past after their divorce and like every other Hollywood celeb, Jane has moved on in her life. There are countless people who took Jane and Bradley as an ideal couple of Hollywood but their nasty separation shattered the belief they held. She decided against sticking with the past and now she is currently dating a new boyfriend whom she has moved on with.
About her present relationship, she said, “The good thing is you realize you have the chance to completely redefine yourself and start your life over, whether you want to or not. That has also, in a funny way, reinvigorated my desire to act again.
“I now have a house, my children, and I’m dating a nice fellow… My kids have a great dad… Brad was the love of my life. We were happy for a long, long time. I don’t know. Things evolve, right?”
After all these years, the actress and her former husband have never opened up about the real reason behind their divorce. There are many sources who claim to know the true cause behind it but nobody has ever come up with logical answer. The mystery behind their split is a mystery and will remain so until either of the former love flames spill the beans on the topic.
The actress does not have official Twitter and Instagram account.
