Jane Lynch is divorcing her wife, Dr. Lara Embry after being married since 2010.
The former couple first met at a fundraiser in San Francisco where Lara was receiving an honor. In 2010, they were engaged and followed that up with their wedding on Memorial Day of the same year – in Massachusetts.
During their marriage, Jane had gotten really close to Lara’s daughter Haden. She previously said, “My greatest pleasure is Haden, my stepdaughter. I am surprised how much love you feel and how you would do anything for your children. Some may say I know a thing or two about playing intimidating authority figures but she knows how important love and acceptance is. I am in love and in awe with Haden. I like watching her walk through the world without fear. She happens to be an exceptional human being and one of the most fair, open-hearted, embracing people I have ever met – grown-up or child.”
With regard to her divorce, she released a statement saying, “Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter.”
