Debra Messing

Smash star Debra Messing looked gorgeous on the June 2012 cover of Ladies’ Home Journal and she opened up about being a single mom after her divorce from Daniel Zelman.

“I think the institution of marriage is a noble thing. I think the idea of a partner for life is incredibly romantic. But now we're living to 100. A hundred years ago, people were dying at age 37. Til death do us part was a much different deal,” she said, on splitting with her husband after being married for 20 years.

Messing said that her son is now fitting well in his new surroundings.

“It's exciting watching him navigate New York City. Every month I see him growing stronger and more confident and brave,” she said.
