Husband, Children & Divorce

Alex Borstein was married to the actor and producer Jackson Douglas.

Alex had known Jackson ever since they studied together at the ACME Comedy Theatre, and also, both had gone on to work for MADtv. In 1995, the actress was surprisingly proposed by Jackson while a skit was undergoing shoot for the show.

A few years later, the pair finally tied the knot in 1999 and gave birth to two children. Their son Barnaby Borstein Douglas was born in 2008 while their daughter Henrietta was born in 2012.

Interestingly, Alex's pregnancy with daughter Henrietta got foreshadowed through the character Lou Deckner that she played in the show Shameless(2011). Since Alex became pregnant right after the character Lou became pregnant in the shows third season; it became something opposite of "art mirrors life" situation.

However, Alex and husband Jackson parted their ways after they officially divorced each other; sharing and splitting their individual and mutual assets.
