Grey’s Anatomy star Caterina Scorsone files for divorce from husband after ten years of marriage

GREY'S Anatomy star Caterina Scorsone is getting divorced.

The 38-year-old, who plays Amelia Shepherd in the ABC medical drama, has split from her husband of ten years, Rob Giles.

"Caterina and Rob have separated. They remain friends and are committed to co-parenting their children in a spirit of love," their reps shared in a joint statement to People.

Scorsone and Giles tied the knot in Toronto in June 2009. The two share three children together – daughters Eliza, 7, Paloma "Pippa" Michaela, 3, and Arwen, who was born in December.

She previously spoke of her views on parenting, after Paloma was diagnosed with Down syndrome.

"How do I mother this child?" she recalled asking herself after the diagnosis, she told the Motherly podcast last March.

"If my job is not to equip her to compete and dominate socially, or educationally, or physically or economically, if I am not supposed to help her do that, what is a mother? What is my job?" she mused.

"This simple voice came to me where I was like, 'I don’t know what to do… Oh, I'm supposed to keep her safe and I'm supposed to make her feel loved,'" she added.

"And suddenly my understanding of my job as a mother completely distilled and opened."

"I loved Eliza so much because she was so clever, and she was so beautiful and she was so funny… but all those things were external qualities," she explained.

"It forced me to realize that I was loving my other daughter and everyone, including myself, for absolutely the wrong reason. I was loving people for their external qualities and not for their essence," she told them.

Caterina's pregnancy with Eliza was written into her character's storyline in season 5 of Private Practice.

Her second pregnancy was not featured in Grey's Anatomy, but her third pregnancy was written into her character's storyline on season 16 of Grey's.
