Debra Messing is opening up about her divorce in the June issue of More magazine.
"We both wanted it to last forever, and it's a sad thing that it wasn't able to go the course," the Smash actress says of her 10-year marriage to writer Daniel Zelman.
"Part of me will always contend with guilt that I wasn't able to give my son the fantasy that my parents were able to give me."

Debra Messing and her husband, Daniel Zelman, have parted ways.
The pair, who are parents to 7½-year-old son Roman, "privately separated earlier this year after a 10 year marriage," Messing's rep confirms to PEOPLE.
"The decision was mutual, and they remain supportive of one another and committed to raising their son as a family."
Messing, 43, first met Zelman – now an actor and producer – when they were both students at New York University (and then dated for eight years).
