"I've talked to her and she's doing great," Peterson shared. "Beyond what she said in her statement, I love her and wish her all my love, and that's all I can say right now." McEntire will appear on the actress' new show, Baby Daddy, on Wednesday.

McEntire and Blackstock wed in June 1989, and share 25-year-old son Shelby in addition to Blackstock's three children from his first marriage. The pair said they will continue to work together and support each other despite their separation.
