Janet Holden, Eric McCormack’s Wife, Files for Divorce after 26 Years, Citing ‘Irreconcilable Differences


According to recent reports from TMZ obtained by Page Six, Janet Holden, the wife of actor Eric McCormack, has initiated divorce proceedings after 26 years of marriage. Citing ‘irreconcilable differences,’ Holden has filed for divorce and has requested spousal support. However, the official date of separation hasn’t been disclosed in the documents.

As of now, there hasn’t been any response from Eric McCormack’s representative regarding this matter.

Back in 2007, McCormack mentioned in an interview with The Guardian that Holden, who was an assistant director, was initially uninterested in starting a relationship with him. McCormack, coming out of a previous relationship, felt that Holden was different and managed to persuade her to give their relationship a chance, mentioning her casual attire of jeans and driving a pickup truck as unique aspects. He shared that the early days were filled with a sense of mystery and excitement, choosing to keep their budding romance under wraps.


In 1995, McCormack and Holden made their relationship public and tied the knot two years later. Their son, Finnigan, was born in 2002 and is currently 21 years old.

McCormack gained widespread recognition for his role as Will Truman in the popular TV series ‘Will and Grace,’ a role he portrayed from 1998 to 2006, returning for a reprisal from 2017 to 2020 on the show’s revival.
