Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph and her longtime partner Vincent Hughes are reportedly moving in together.
According to reports, Ralph is moving to Philadelphia to live with Hughes, a member of the Pennsylvania State Senate, after 18 years of marriage.
The two have mostly lived separately since tying the knot in 2005. Ralph's primary home is California where she works on Abbott Elementary and other projects while Hughes' role in the state Senate keeps him tied to Pennsylvania.
When asked about the secret to a happy marriage earlier this year, Ralph quipped “We don’t live together!”
“I see him every two weeks. And when I see him, I’m so happy to see him, and then when I’m leaving, I’m so happy to leave because I know I’ll be back again! Yeah, it works!” the actress said.
However, a source said the separate living arrangement is no longer working for the couple.
“Sheryl’s work on Abbott Elementary keeps her anchored in L.A., while Vincent’s responsibilities tie him to Philadelphia — but regular visits every two weeks is no longer enough,” the source said. “She will still travel to L.A. to work, but the moment the camera stops rolling, she’s heading home to her husband!”
