This will be Underwood’s second time walking down the aisle. The Peabody Award winner was married for 27 years to Desiree DaCosta. She filed for divorce in 2021.

After a tremendous amount of thought, prayer & work on ourselves individually & collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago. It has truly been a beautiful journey. Our proudest achievements are our three incredible children. Three souls to which God entrusted us. We continue to be awed & humbled by the blessings of parenting. We have always put their best interests first & will continue to do so. We will continue to be the best of friends and co-parents and have the utmost respect for one another as we embark upon this new chapter of our lives, separately.
They share three adult children together, Blake, Brielle and Paris.
