Step by step. Pregnant Eva Amurri had a hard time dropping her two children off at her estranged husband Kyle Martino’s house for the first time.
“Kyle and I have now been living in separate, permanent residences since early November,” the actress, 34, wrote in a Wednesday, January 15, blog post. “Kyle had the kids for the first time at his apartment right around the holidays. It was extremely emotional for me to drop them off — not because they hadn’t spent time with just him before (they had, of course), but because it seemed like such a big milestone in the life of our divorce. That first weekend “away” from me felt so big to me — sad and strange.”

We pretty much had the Thanksgiving from Hell (Tummy bug extraordinaire 🤮) but the best day today. All five of us! The tree is decorated and the kids even picked out which half of the ornaments are going to their tree at Daddy’s house. Feeling lots of modern love this holiday season ❤️🎄🙏🏼 #HappilyEvaAfter #HonestMotherhood #HappyThanksgiving #DoLoveYourWay
“Kyle helped me through — sending me photos and videos of the kids nonstop,” Susan Sarandon’s daughter went on to write. “I sobbed in the car on the drive home, and texted some girlfriends some very dramatic things about my heart being left behind in Brooklyn. LOL.”
But after a bath and a couple quiet days of rest, the New York native “started feeling A LOT better.” In fact, by the time Marlowe and Major came home, she felt “like a new woman and a better mom.”
As for the little ones, Amurri’s eldest was “a little anxious” about staying at Martino’s new place overnight and “had a momentary FaceTime meltdown” before settling in.
Earlier this month, Amurri decided to restore her maiden name. “It’s EA to you, baby!” she captioned a January 8 Instagram picture of herself wearing “EA” hair clips. “It was a very emotional decision but an empowering one, and I’m looking forward to the fresh start this new decade brings. I’m also way into celebrating with hair accessories. #NewChapter.”
