The couple released a statement which said they would continue to have “friendship, love and respect for one another” despite the separation.
It read: “It is with tremendous sadness that we have come to the decision to divorce.
“We enter this next phase with continued friendship, love and respect for one another and the shared focus of caring for our son.
