Facinelli cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, and he is seeking joint custody of their three children. Garth filed a response to the divorce petition, and is requesting that her name be legally changed back to Garth. Garth agrees to Facinelli’s request for joint custody of their kids.

The Twilight star walked the red carpet at The Hunger Games premiere last Monday night with their oldest daughter, Luca. They also have two other daughters, Lola and Fiona, together.
