“Like a lot of couples do, they simply grew apart,” a source told Scallywag & Vagabond, who were the first to report the split.
In the summer of 2011 the couple separated, with Jennie staying in their family home and Peter renting a home in Santa Ynez while they tried to work on their relationship.
The Twilight star walked the red carpet at The Hunger Games premiere Monday night with their oldest daughter, Luca. They also have two other daughters, Lola and Fiona, together.
“While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children,” they said in a statement.
“We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time,” the couple announced in a statement.
