The 58-year-old Marvel Cinematic Universe actor and the 60-year-old Dirty Dancing actress took to their social media accounts on Friday (July 3) to announce the sad news.
“After 19 years together, we separated in January, knowing we’d always be a family who loves, values and cares for each other. We recently made the difficult decision to divorce, but we remain close and are deeply grateful for the life we’ve shared and the wonderful daughter we’ve raised,” the couple wrote in their joint statement.
They both added, “P.S. totally crying as we post this.”
Clark and Jennifer started dating in the summer of 2000 and they got married on the beach in Martha’s Vineyard in July 2001. Their daughter Stella, now 18, was born in December 2001.
Jennifer posted a sweet message for Clark on Father’s Day last month and the family was all together for Stella‘s high school graduation.
There have been lots of surprising breakups in Hollywood throughout the past month.
