Roma Downey Getting Divorced
Mar. 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.
