Jane Lynch and wife Lara Embry to divorce after three years of marriage

By Gina DiFalco,

Glee star Jane Lynch and her wife, Lara Embry, have announced that they’re getting divorced after three years of marriage. The couple confirmed their split in a statement.

“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," Lynch told People.

The veteran actress, 52, and 44-year-old Dr. Embry got married during Memorial Day weekend in 2010 after meeting at a fundraiser in 2009. They exchanged vows in Massachusetts, which is one of the states that allow same-sex marriage, in an intimate ceremony only attended by 19 people.

Lynch has spoken about how close she got with Embry’s daughter, Haden, 10. "My greatest pleasure is Haden, my stepdaughter, I am surprised how much love you feel and how you would do anything for your children,” she said back in March.

USA Today reports Lynch is currently starring in Annie: The Musical as Miss Hannigan.
