The ‘When they see us’ actress, 49, shared the news of the split in a joint statement on Instagram with the caption:
“We believe in the beauty of truth. Always have. Our truth is that in this season of our lives, we are better friends than partners in marriage.
“Our union was such a gorgeous ride. And as we go our separate ways now, we feel fortunate for the love we share – present tense. Thank you all out there for your support of us as a couple over the last eight years. We are grateful.”
The couple met at a labor day parade in 2009 and got married in 2011 at the Church Estates Vineyard in Malibu in front of close friends and family.
