Actress Faye Grant had no idea her husband Stephen Collins was filing for divorce to end their 27-year marriage, insisting she is "devastated" by the "surprise" split.
The 7th Heaven star, who wed Grant in 1985, announced on Monday (07May12) that they had decided to part ways.
He stated, "My wife and I are moving forward separately in our lives. She has been my dearest friend and a loving mother. I know that we'll go through this process in a way that honours our family."
But Grant reveals she's been blindsided by the break-up.
She tells E! News, "Stephen's filing for divorce is a surprise. I am devastated. I wish him the very best in whatever path he chooses to take. Twenty-seven years of marriage in Hollywood is the equivalent of 189 dog years. I was exhausted."
