DAYS Star Hall, Husband Announce Divorce

After 13 years of marriage, Days of our Lives star Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and husband Steve Sohmer are divorcing.

"As you can imagine, this is a truly difficult time," Hall said in a statement. "My primary concern is for my children and their well-being. I am deeply grateful for the sensitivity I have seen in many of your comments. Thank you for your caring and for continuing to respect our privacy."

Sohmer and Hall married in a spectacular December 31, 1991 ceremony at Sohmer's 17th-century home in England. The couple has two sons by a surrogate mother, 12-year-old David and 10-year-old Tully.

Hall joined the cast of Days of our Lives in 1976 and remained with the show through 1987, when she took a brief hiatus to pursue primetime projects. She returned in 1991 and has been with the show ever since. Last year the actress signed a two-year contract extension through August 2006.
