"Almost fourteen years as best friends, soul mates, partners and then parents. It's been an incredible journey, but together we decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage," the actor shared on October 1st.
"As we move into this next chapter, our children and our relationships as fellow parents and dear friends will remain our priorities," his message continued. "We understand that this message is suitable for public dialogue, but in the interests of our children and our families, we ask for privacy, compassion and love during this time. Thank you."
