James Rodríguez and Daniela Ospina have called it quits. 

The news of the soccer superstar's separation comes directly from the couple itself. On Thursday, the 24-year-old former professional volleyball player made a formal statement on her Instagram

"Daniela Ospina and James Rodríguez, parents of Salomé Rodríguez Ospina; officialize their separation after six and a half years of marriage. It was all in the greatest of terms with one standard agreement, maintaining between them an extraordinary relationship full of love and respect, where the most important thing is the best interest of Salomé. They'll always be partners in life in her growth and education," the post reads in Spanish. "Both find themselves with significant professional challenges in different countries. Daniela will be in Colombia, launching her brand and with national and international projects. James is in Germany, ready to continue harvesting triumphs, fill a country full of pride that will always have him in their heart. All the way from over, he'll keep up with Daniela's course of life, and she along with Salmoé will be persistently rooting and supporting him."

When Ospina was only 18 years old, the couple wed in Medellín, Colombia on December 24, 2010. They then went off to live in Portugal. The two, who really wanted to form a family, welcomed their daughter Salomé on March 29, 2013.

The joint statement continues to say, "We understand the repercussions of this news, but we thank the media for the way always keeping in mind and protecting the best interest of the three, before everything respecting our private life as a family that loves the Colombian people."

James and Daniela will not be giving interviews on this matter.
