Just before their nine-year wedding anniversary, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon gave her allegedly cheating husband Mike Nilon a special gift: divorce papers.

The actress-model officially filed for divorce on May 10, citing irreconcilable differences. According to court documents, they've been separated since April 9.

But just last week, the mom of two seemed unsure as to how she would proceed with her marriage...

"I'm taking it one day at a time, and I'm learning how strong I am," she told E! News when asked how's she dealing. "I don't know...I have kids, so I don't know."

One thing she was certain of: having no regrets about exposing her husband's cheating via an email blast to his CAA coworkers, in which she compared him to Jesse James and Tiger Woods.

"I was angry...and no, I don't regret it," she said.

Nilon has not commented on the split or the scandal that precipitated it.

He and Beauvais-Nilon would have celebrated their ninth anniversary on May 12.

She is seeking joint custody of their 2-year-old twin sons, Jax and Jaid.

The former NYPD Blue star told E! News that her summer plans include taking her boys on vacation and keeping things "light and happy."

No doubt things will be lighter soon enough, without Nilon weighing down her last name.
