The ex-couple married in 2001 but have now lived apart since April 9. They would have celebrated their 9-year anniversary on May 12, but Garcelle filed for divorce two days before and is apparently unsure how she’ll move on.
“I’m taking it one day at a time and learning how strong I am,” she told E! when asked how’s she coping. “I don’t know…I have kids, so I don’t know.”
Her only firm plans are for a Summer vacation with the former couple’s two sons – 2-year-old twins, Jax and Jaid. Garcelle is seeking joint custody, and says her goal for the break is to keep things “light and happy.”
