Melissa Gilbert Separates From Her Second Husband.

It looks like Melissa Gilbert’s little house isn’t going to be so full anymore. The 46-year-old Little House on the Prairie star filed for separation from her second husband Bruce Boxleitner, 60.

“We have loved each other for a very long time and we share four incredible sons together,” Gilbert tells Us in a statement. “On behalf of our family we ask to be allowed our privacy during this very difficult time.”

The couple married in 1995 and welcomed son Michael nine months later.
