Roma Downey Getting Divorced

March 15, 1998

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ ``Touched by an Angel″ star Roma Downey is getting a divorce from film director David Anspaugh after 2 1/2 years of marriage.

Divorce papers filed here have been sealed, and the Irish-born actress is withholding all details.

Downey, 34, and Anspaugh, 50, were married in Utah in a ceremony conducted by ``Touched by an Angel″ co-star and part-time minister Della Reese.

They have a 1-year-old daughter, Reilly Marie, and Anspaugh has a daughter from a previous marriage.

On the show, which is taped in Utah, Downey plays Monica, an angel who helps people in crisis.

The former couple bought a Salt Lake area home in 1996, and Anspaugh, the director of ``Hoosiers″ and ``Rudy,″ commuted from Los Angeles to Utah on weekends.
