Ashley Judd and her estranged husband are back together!

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles

Ashley Judd and her estranged husband Dario Franchitti are back together!

The 45-year-old actress and her 40-year-old race car driver, are giving their relationship another chance. Sources tell Us Weekly that following Dario’s scary accident at the Grand Prix of Houston earlier this month, the two rekindled their romance. Dario suffered a broken ankle, two fractured vertebrae and a concussion.

“They are going to give it another try after he recovers,” an insider tells Us in its Oct. 28 issue. “His accident made her realize how much she loves him.”

After hearing of his accident, Ashley raced to his side. “Thank you for the prayers for Dario, I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that’s all that we need & we are on our way,” the Divergent actress wrote on Oct. 6. She later added: “Amazed by the incredible outpouring of care & prayers. Thanks, everyone. Keeping our heads down here & doing what’s in front of us to do.”

Ashley and Dario have been separated since January, when they split after 11 years of marriage. Neither of them ever filed for divorce.

Ashley Judd races to her husband’s side after he suffers major car accident!

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles

Ashley Judd, 45,  raced to her estranged husband’s side on Sunday, after the Grand Prix racer got into a major accident. Dario Franchitti, 40,  was racing at the Houston Grand Prix when his car launched into the air and into a fence, leading him to get a concussion, broken right ankle and two fractured vertebrae. He underwent surgery on Sunday to repair his ankle.

Debris from the vehicle flew into the air after impact, injuring 13 fans in the stadium. “Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes,” he tweeted later in the day. “They mean a lot to me. …I would also like to send my best to all the fans involved in the accident and hope that everyone is alright.”

Ashley rushed out to be by his side at the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. “Thank you for the prayers for Dario, I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that’s all that we need & we are on our way,” the Divergent star tweeted.

Representatives from IndyCar similarly expressed their condolences to all affected by the Sunday tragedy.

“Our thoughts remain with everyone affected by yesterday’s accident,” the organization told Us in a tatement Monday. “Thank you to the people of Houston for their support of the Grand Prix and their concern for Dario Franchitti, the fans and race personnel. IndyCar is thoroughly reviewing the incident. Reducing the risks that are associated with racing is one of our highest priorities and receives our constant and on-going focus.”

Judd and Franchitti were married for just over 10 years when they announced their decision to separate this past January; though neither party has filed for divorce, it is unclear whether they have reconciled or are simply on good terms.

“We have mutually decided to end our marriage,” the couple said in a statement at the time. “We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed.”

Hopefully he’ll make a full recovery, and then he and Ashley can get back together. :)

Here’s video… how scary!

Ashley Judd splits from her husband of more than a decade!

Ashley Judd and Dario Franchitti are calling it quits after more than a decade of marriage.

“We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed,” Judd, 44, and Franchitti, 39, tell PEOPLE exclusively in a statement on Tuesday.

After being engaged for about two years, the Missing star and the racecar driver tied the knot in a highly private ceremony in Scotland in 2001.

Judd’s sister, Wynonna Judd, served as maid of honor, while the groom’s brother Mario was the best man.

So sad!!

PICS: 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!

There were so many beautiful women at last night’s 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. ‘Mad Men’ and ‘American Horror Story’ led the race with 17 nominations each, but it was the casts of ‘Modern Family’, ‘Homeland’, and ‘Game Change’ that came away the big winners.

Here’s more on the awards ceremony from People:

Eric Stonestreet took home the first award of the night for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. In a repeat of last year’s early Emmys sweep for the series, Julie Bowen took home the best supporting actress award, marking her second consecutive win in the category, followed by the show’s co-creator Steve Levitan winning the Emmy for outstanding comedy direction. The cast closed out the evening the same way it began, with another win, this time for outstanding comedy series.

Newcomer Homeland had an incredible night following the show’s debut season. The Showtime series’ star Damian Lewis won the Emmy for the lead actor in a drama series – while his pregnant costar Claire Danes scooped up the best actress award. Homeland also took home the Emmys for outstanding writing and outstanding drama series.

After playing Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, Julianne Moore won her first Primetime Emmy for lead actress in a miniseries or movie. “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” she said as she accepted her award. The political film – which won four awards total – also took home honors for outstanding writing, outstanding directing and outstanding miniseries or movie.

Two and Half Men‘s Jon Cryer won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy. “Don’t panic people, something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I am stunned, I didn’t actually win this – this did not just happen!” Cryer said, addressing his fellow nominees Don Cheadle, Louis C.K., Jim Parsons, Larry David and Alec Baldwin. Meanwhile, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy.

Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul was stunned as he accepted his Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series. “I cannot believe I’m standing on this stage, let alone in this room,” he said. But before stepping down from the stage, the actor thanked his fiancée Lauren Parsekian. “You saved me,” he said.

Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, beating out Archie Panjabi, Anna Gunn, Joanne Froggatt, Christina Hendricks and Christine Baranksi, but wasn’t present to accept.

While accepting the Emmy for outstanding variety series, Jon Stewart earned first-to-get-bleeped honors after winning his 10th consecutive Emmy for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

And Jessica Lange stunned in red as she accepted the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie for her role as Constance Langdon in American Horror Story, while Kevin Costner took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in the same category for his role in Hatfields and McCoys.

I’ll be posting pictures from the red carpet, and here are the people I’ll be posting pictures of. Who was your best dressed from last night?
