Georgia Chapman is ''doing well'' in the wake of her split from Harvey Weinstein, but is still ''very sad'', according to actress Alyssa Milano.

The 41-year-old fashion designer announced in October that she would be splitting from the disgraced producer - with whom she has seven-year-old daughter India and four-year-old son Dashiell - after he was accused of sexually harassing over 80 female employees in a 30 year period.

And now, her close friend Alyssa, 44, has given an update on the Marchesa co-founder, whom she says is currently working on raising her two children.

Speaking during an appearance on the 'Today' show, the 'Charmed' actress said: ''Georgina is doing very well. She's an amazing mother. She's an amazing woman, and I think her priority right now is focusing on how to raise those two children to the best of her capacity given the situation. She goes through very dark times. She's very sad ... This is not easy for her, but I have no doubt that not only will she come out on the other side of this, but she deserves too. She's a good woman.''

Previously, it was claimed Georgina was pushing for a divorce from her husband, although she was in no hurry to ''rush'' the proceedings.

An insider claimed: ''Georgina is doing okay. She continues to focus on her family and work. She doesn't want to be married to Harvey. She wants a divorce. It's just not anything that she is rushing.

''She is a great mom and very protective her kids. She wants to stay low-key. She has no plans to do any kind of interview. That's not her style. She is very private.''

Meanwhile, Weinstein, 65, admitted in October he was ''profoundly devastated'' by Georgina's decision to end their relationship, and expressed his hope for a reconciliation in the future.

He said: ''I am profoundly devastated. I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else.

''I fully support her decision. I didn't stand in Georgina's way when we discussed a separation, I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. I know she has to do what is best for the children, for herself and her business, she employs 130 people. I don't want her or my children to be hurt any more than they already have. I truly love Georgina, and I hope one day we can reconcile, although right now I don't know if that could possibly happen.''
