Happy, awkward holidays for Debra Messing and Daniel Zelman in the Big Apple.

Us Weekly broke news on Tuesday that the Smash actress, 43, and the actor-TV producer, 44, had separated after over ten years of marriage. "The decision was mutual," Messing's rep told Us in a statement. "They remain supportive of one another and committed to raising their son as a family."

How committed? A source told Us that the former couple "have been separated the better part of the year but continue to live together in New York for Roman," their 7-year-old son.

The family recently relocated from Los Angeles to NYC (where Messing and Zelman first met as NYU students), where she's been filming Smash, the buzzed-about new NBC series due in February.

The split is "very amicable," the source added.

Despite their secret separation, Messing and Zelman attended Bette Midler's Halloween bash in matching costumes -- and the former Will and Grace actress gushed in November to LilSugar about her family's holiday plans in NYC.

"We love to go skating at Wolman rink, and go see plays . . . Looking forward to putting on the snowsuit and stomping through Central Park."
