Dean Sheremet and Sarah Silver are calling it quits after nearly five years of marriage, a source close to the couple tells E! News exclusively.

"It's very amicable.He was ready for a family but she wanted to focus on her growing photography career. They remain friends," the insider tells us.

The dancer-turned food blogger and fitness trainer, who was married to singer LeAnn Rimes for seven years, tied the knot to Silver back in August 2011. Sheremet posted a video of the newlyweds stepping out of a City Clerk's office at the time of the ceremony.

He was seen wearing a gray suit with no tie and his bride, 35, wore a short, one-shoulder red dress, while holding a bouquet of flowers. The couple shared a passionate kiss before stepping down the stairs and approaching the camera. The post read, "Happy happy day."

In March 2015, Sheremet opened up for the first time about the infamous scandal surrounding his marriage with Rimes. In 2009, the duo split when Sheremet learned that Rimes had been cheating on him with now-husband Eddie Cibrian on the set of the Lifetime movie Northern Lights. At the time, Cibrian was married to future Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality star Brandi Glanville.

Sheremet admitted, though, that there were problems prior to Cibrian's involvement, explaining that their hectic lifestyles often caused problems in their personal life.

"Unfortunately, I think the business ended up destroying us. That passion for our marriage wasn't there. The person that I needed to be, the person I should have been, I wasn't. I wasn't the person she came home to and unloaded on. And, then, of course, I was thinking, I haven't done what I've wanted to do in over eight years," Sheremet said. "I came to the realization that my name was never going to be on the marquee. No matter how much I put into this show or that tour, it was never going to be about me."

According to Sheremet, "That was a really big moment. It was a hard thing to take."
