The couple, who tied the knot in 2015, released a joint statement announcing the news on Thursday, February 15.
"In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship," the statement reads. "Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another."
While the couple has decided to go their separate ways, they enjoyed many years of wonderful moments together. Let's take a trip down memory lane and look back at the duo's sweetest quotes about each other over the years:

I'm very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself. So in a weird way it's an honor to stand behind her. Truly, in that sense, she's amazing."
