Actor Blair Underwood has announced his engagement on Instagram to his lifelong friend of 41 years, Josie Hart. This comes after Underwood has just been divorced last year in 2021 from his wife, Desiree DaCosta, who he had been married to for 27 years.
The two had released a statement at the time of their split where they announced that their focus will be of their children.
“We continue to be awed & humbled by the blessings of parenting. We have always put their best interests first & will continue to do so. We will continue to be the best of friends and co-parents and have the utmost respect for one another as we embark upon this new chapter of our lives, separately.”
In the Instagram post on Wednesday, Blair speaks of his love for Josie along with announcing the news and a picture of the two.
“My personal highlight was walking the red carpet with my new fiancée Josie Hart. The most amazing, brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, thought provoking & insightful person I know who continuously lives life out-loud. The future is crazy-bright Girl! None of us ever know where God will guide our paths. She’s had my back since before I even became an actor. When a 41 year friendship slaps you in the back of the head & blossoms into romance, you stand up, pay attention & step forward in gratitude. Gently forward. It begins!”
