It’s officially over for Blair Underwood and Desiree DaCosta Underwood.
The “Sex and the City” actor’s wife filed for divorce on Tuesday, per a court docket obtained by Page Six on Wednesday.
While it is unclear if Desiree asked for spousal support, child support and custody will not be an issue. The couple’s three children — sons Paris, 24, and Blake, 19, and daughter Brielle, 22 — are not minors.
The couple announced their split in a joint statement last month.
“After a tremendous amount of thought, prayer & work on ourselves individually & collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago,” the statement read.
They wrote, “Our proudest achievements are our three incredible children. Three souls to which God entrusted us,. We continue to be awed & humbled by the blessings of parenting. We have always put their best interests first & will continue to do so. We will continue to be the best of friends and co-parents and have the utmost respect for one another as we embark upon this new chapter of our lives, separately.”
Underwood, 56, previously told Page Six that his soon-to-be-ex was the reason he took his iconic role as Miranda Hobbes’ love interest, Dr. Robert Leeds, on the HBO hit.
“When the offer came in, I mentioned it to my wife and she’s like, ‘No, you need to do that. Why are you even pausing? You want to go do that,’” he said. “I thank her for that.”
He also said in a 2008 interview for Oprah.com that he “wanted to be her rock, her protector. If she had a problem, I wanted to solve it.”
