Fergie and Josh Duhamel have called it quits after eight years of marriage.

A rep for Fergie confirmed the split to E! News, "With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year. To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family."

The couple welcomed a son named Axl Jack Duhamel in 2013.

As for the reason behind the split, one insider also told us, "They completely grew apart. This was a long time coming and they've been trying to sort everything out this past year."

Even though they've decided to split, the couple did share many great moments together over the years. Take a look at a timeline of their relationship below and see their romance through the years.
