Malin Akerman’s husband, Robert Zincone, has filed for divorce.
The couple separated last week after six years of marriage. According to TMZ, Zincone filed documents in Los Angeles on November 27, the day before Thanksgiving. There are no further details regarding Zincone’s filing.
The separation comes just seven months after Akerman gave birth to the couple’s first child, Sebastian. In October, the 35-year-old explained her secret for getting her body back — old-fashioned diet and exercise.
“It’s a lot of working out and a really good diet. Diet as in really healthy food,” the Swedish-born actress said. “I wish there was a magic pill you could just pop in! But unfortunately, it’s exercise – I’ve been doing Pilates, and cycling, and hiking. That’s pretty much my routine, as often as possible.”
In September, the Trophy Wife star said of her marriage, “We’ve never had one single fight. We always talk things out.”
An insider said of the couple’s split, “It’s as amicable as can be, and they want to do what’s best for their son.”
Malin Akerman and Robert Zincone met in 2003 when they performed with The Petalstones. Akerman was the lead singer, and Zincone was the drummer. They socialized after practice, with Zincone using a dictionary since he didn’t speak English. They began dating and were married on June 20, 2007, at Grand Hotel Moon Valley in Sorrento, Italy.
Akerman currently stars in the ABC comedy Trophy Wife, which premiered on September 24. She plays Kate, a young party girl who marries a professional middle-aged man named Pete (Bradley Whitford), who is twice-divorced and has three kids: Hillary (Bailee Madison), Warren (Ryan), and Bert (Albert). Marcia Gay Harden and Michaela Watkins play Pete’s ex-wives, Diane and Jackie.
“From an outsider’s point of view, people go: ‘Oh, younger, cute woman with an older man. Of course she’s a trophy wife,'” Akerman said of the role. “But we learn that Kate is really this lovely woman who is in it for the right reasons. Loves the kids, loves her husband, but just isn’t really good at it yet.”
