AceShowbiz - There may be a trouble in paradise in Melissa Benoist's marriage to Chris Wood. The couple, who met on the set of "Supergirl", is reportedly headed for divorce after less than two years of marriage and several months after welcoming their first child.
The rumor that swirled on the Internet said that the 32-year-old actress "has definitely discussed" the possibility of filing for divorce, "but is hopeful that with the series ending that things can improve."
The report added that the Supergirl a.k.a. Kara Danvers depicter is "committed to at least trying to make it work because of the offspring." However, her husband Chris reportedly isn't as committed as she is.
The rumor should be taken with a grain of salt, though, as it is unclear where it originated. The news that spread via Internet forum has since attracted Internet users to weigh in on it, with one commenting, "That really sucks if true considering her ex-husband abused her, I was wondering why she hasn't been posting much on her Instagram. maybe this is why." Another slammed Chris, "Chris Wood isn't husband material. Before he got with Melissa he slept with many actresses from The CW."
Melissa and Chris began dating in 2017 after meeting on the set of "Supergirl", on which he has recurred as Mon-El. They announced their engagement in February 2019 and married in September of the same year. In September 2020, they welcomed their first child together, a son named Huxley Robert Wood.
"Huxley Robert Wood got here a few weeks ago and this little boy is everything," she wrote on Instagram along with a snap of the tot's tiny hand when announcing his arrival.
Melissa was previously married to her former "Glee" co-star Blake Jenner from 2015 until their divorce was finalized in 2017. In November 2019, she revealed that she suffered physical abuse from her ex-husband during their relationship.
