After more than a decade together, the couple announced in a joint statement that they were divorcing.
“We have some personal news to share,” the statement on Witherspoon’s Instagram stated. “It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce.”
“We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect for everything that we have created together,” the statement added.
The “Your Place or Mine” actress wed the producer in 2011 at her Ojai estate. Tennessee, their 10-year-old son, is shared.
“Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter,” the joint statement continued. “These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”
“Reese and Jim” are the signers of the note.
This was Toth’s initial union. From 1999 through 2008, Witherspoon was wed to actor Ryan Phillippe. Son Deacon, 19, and daughter Eva, 23, were born to the former couple.
The actor, who recently turned 47, recently celebrated the news. On March 22, her oldest children exchanged heartfelt birthday wishes with her on Instagram.
Calling her a “legendary lady,” Ava wrote, “I’m lucky enough to call my mama! She is truly a force of nature. While I am endlessly inspired by her and so proud of all she’s accomplished, what I admire most is the way she moves through the world as a curious, considerate, gracious, and loving person. With each year, I find even more reasons to love her, and I am thrilled to celebrate another year of her bright light in my life! Love you always.”
Deacon, on his end, shared a throwback photo of the two on his Instagram story, writing, “Happy birthday to the most amazing mom. Beyond grateful for u❤️.”
