Keri Russell has her hands full with mommy duty while everyone is buzzing around with report of her separation from husband Shane Deary. After her representative confirmed the split news, the "August Rush" star was spotted out and about in New York City with her daughter Willa Lou.
The Golden Globe-winning actress, sporting a sweater and purple scarf, was carrying the adorable little girl, who wore a big furry hat and cute red rain boots. The casual outing took place on Thursday, December 5, just hours after report emerged that she and her husband of six years, Deary, had called it quits several months ago.
"They have been separated since early summer," a rep for Russell said in a statement released to the press. "The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children." The 37-year-old beauty and the carpenter, who were married on Valentine's Day 2007, have two children together, 6-year-old River Russell and 23-month-old Willa.
The separation news came just a day after Russell's Brooklyn Heights home was burglarized in early Wednesday morning. The alleged burglars, who took a laptop, a necklace, a pair of earrings and a Filson handbag from her home, were arrested for alleged burglary in another house several blocks away from Russell's.
According to police, Ronald Swindell, who was found with a satchel containing items from the two houses, has been arrested for more than 20 times for burglary and other crimes. He and his nephew Steffon were charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen items.
