'Grey's Anatomy' star Caterina Scorsone and husband Rob Giles file for divorce after 10-year marriage
Canadian actor Caterina Scorsone, most famous for playing Amelia Shepherd in the ABC medical dramas ‘Private Practice’ and ‘Grey's Anatomy’, and her husband musician Rob Giles have reportedly split after over a decade of marriage.
According to People magazine, representatives of the former couple said, “Caterina and Rob have separated. They remain friends and are committed to co-parenting their children in a spirit of love.”
According to court documents assessed by Us Weekly, the couple separated on March 1. The 38-year-old actress reportedly cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of separation in her divorce filing on Friday, May 8.
Scorsone and Giles, who got married in 2009, share three daughters: seven-year-old Eliza, three-year-old Paloma ‘Pippa’ Michaela, and Arwen, who was born in December 2019.
On June 28, 2019, Scorsone and Giles celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary. She commemorated the day with a beautiful photo of them and their then two daughters with the caption, “It’s been ten magic and joy-filled years married to this incredible human. So grateful for all the love, all the learning, and growing and for the gobsmacking miracle of our girls.”
While Scorsone and Giles kept their marriage relatively private, the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actor has often spoken about motherhood. In the course of her second pregnancy, Scorsone found out her daughter would have to live with a congenital disorder that would affect her mental health for the rest of her life: Down Syndrome.
Speaking on the Motherly podcast last year, she said, “If my job isn't to equip her to compete or dominate, socially, educationally, physically or economically. If I'm not just supposed to be helping her do that, what is a mother, what is my job? I'm supposed to keep her safe, and I'm supposed to make her feel loved.”
She added further, “Here's a little info, one in 700 babies is born with Down Syndrome. Language is important. Parents don't have a one in 700 risk of having a baby with Down Syndrome. Parents have a one in 700 chance of having a baby with Down Syndrome, just like they have a 50 percent chance in having a girl, and a 50 percent chance in having a boy.”
