Vanessa Morgan breaks silence on Michael Kopech's divorce

Nearly four years after calling it quits, actress Vanessa Morgan is opening up her 2020 divorce from baseball star Michael Kopech.

The Riverdale actress recently sat down with us Rachel Bilson for a new episode of her podcast, Broad ideasand got candid about the divorce – which happened when she was pregnant with her and Kopech's son, River.

'It's so painful right now,' Morgan thought. “It's almost like we're glorifying the reality of our dreams [was] since we were little… [then] you mourn the future that never happened. You mourn the fantasy you created, and that wasn't the reality that fit best for me.”

The news first broke in July 2020 that Kopech had filed for divorce the month before. News of the divorce surfaced just days after Morgan revealed this was the case expecting her first childa little boy.

In the pregnancy announcement, Morgan made no mention of Kopech, who was previously confirmed to be the case Take a leave did not play for the White Sox this season due to 'personal reasons'.

Morgan and Kopech got engaged at the Grand Canyon in July 2019 and tied the knot at the Historic Walton House near Miami in early January 2020 – their divorce came about six months later.

Reflecting on their breakup, Morgan explained, “I was in pain for two years.”

For the actress, one of the biggest sources of pain came from “shame” and “not wanting to face the fact that you have a broken family.”

“You're getting married and you want to have that fantasy a little bit,” she said. “I think it's almost like you're disappointed when you tell people it didn't work out.”

However, Morgan said she eventually realized that things unfolded in a way that allowed her to grow and find the right person and be the best mother to her son.

“The great thing about life is that it doesn't always go as planned,” Morgan said. “I don't want to be a victim. Otherwise I'm going to feel bad about myself all the time and I didn't want to feel bad about myself. I have a beautiful son, and that has been my blessing. “

In the years after her divorce, Morgan started a relationship with basketball player James Karnik, with whom she has been in a relationship since 2022.

As Morgan explained, Karnik has played a big role in her son's life, even if Kopech hasn't left completely.

“His father is in his life,” Morgan said, adding, “He doesn't see him often.”

Following their divorce, Kopech subsequently married Morgan Eudy, and the couple welcomed their son, Vander, in 2022.

“At least [River] I will always know that my partner has been there now, from what he will remember, as the beginning,” Morgan said of Karnik. “They are together every day… he looks to him as a father figure.”
