The 'Devious Maids' actress is divorcing Ryan Oehm, insisting she follows her instinct and her heart while apologizing for hurting her husband and causing him pain.

AceShowbiz - Edy Ganem called off her marriage to Ryan Oehm. They have split earlier this year but they kept it hush-hush. "I wrote this post on Halloween but I didn't post it. I guess I wasn't ready. But I think I am ready now," she wrote on Instagram to announce her impending divorce.

"This is what I wrote: Yesterday would have been our anniversary. But my marriage with this wonderful man has come to an end. I am broken hearted. But not for the reasons most people would think," she wrote, claiming her husband was not to blame for the split. "He didn't do ANYTHING to break my heart."

"Quite the opposite actually. He PROTECTED it like I've never seen before, he respected me, loved me, he listened to me, he wanted to always make me happy and he also gave me the two most important things in my entire life; our two children. I am broken hearted because I never thought I would get divorced. Because I had a dream that my family would always be. And now it is not. It is now divided. I know I need to come to terms with that but I still see families and wish my family was the unit it used to be."

The "Devious Maids" actress insisted she just trusted her gut, "I know this is going to sound so confusing. Maybe it is. Maybe I have no idea what I'm doing with my life. But what I do know is that I follow my instincts and my heart."

"In the process I know I've hurt people, specially him. I know I've caused pain and I can't not think about that every day," she lamented. "Another thing I know I'm not supposed to do since I'm being true to myself?"

Although she felt terrible, she was determined to go through with the separation in an effort to find her own fulfilment. She just hoped "for the best" as she said, "I feel horrible for all the change I've brought to all of us and I hope everyone, including the kids, will be fine and maybe even better than fine. I hope things turn out to be what they're supposed to be. I only do what I do in the search for happiness."

"I don't know what follows after here. I just want to know I gave my best and I lived to the fullest..and I STILL feel I'm holding back. I still don't know how I can feel truly 'free'? I don't know if that's the word I'm looking for. I know this is going to come as a shock to so many..including a lot of people in my family. I feel I owe apologies to some people."

She concluded her post by paying tribute to her "wonderful" husband, "Thank you for all the wonderful years together, thank you for being who you are, please stay that way, you are a good good man, you were such a good husband and you're such a wonderful dad! I couldn't have asked for a better person to have children with."
