Tom Welling's marriage isn't so super any more.

The blue-eyed Smallville star, who portrayed the popular superhero Superman aka Clark Kent on the 2001 TV series, was hit with divorce papers from his wife of over 10 years Jamie White Welling, E! News confirms.

Welling's estranged wife filed the documents on Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their dissolution of marriage and marked that she is seeking spousal support.

According to the documents, the couple filed for legal separation in December 2012.

The actor married his model wife five years after meeting each other in New York City. The duo held a wedding ceremony on July 5, 2002, in Martha's Vineyard with Welling's friends and then-current Smallville costars Kristin Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum in attendance.

Welling has always been one to stray from the spotlight, which is mainly because he's not in it for the fame (sound familiar?).

TMZ first reported the story.

They have no children together.
