Last November, My Name Is Earl's Jaime Pressly spilt from longtime boyfriend Eric Cubiche. The news shocked many, as just a year and a half earlier the two were the picture of bliss, welcoming son Dezi into the world and telling the press about how their relationship was reminiscent of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo's.

Unlike the post-baby partings of Madonna and Guy Ritchie (less than a year after David Banda's adoption was finalized) and Billy Crudup and Mary-Louise Parker (he left her for Claire Danes while she was 7-months along with their baby), she says her split from Cubiche was completely amicable. In an interview with April's Redbook magazine, she explains that: "We both still love each other, and the most important thing is our son…we want to make sure he's happy and taken care of."
