Hollywood power pair Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky are calling it quits after nine years together.
The couple, who are parents to 4-year-old Henry Chance, released the following joint statement to CNN through a rep: "Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky have been separated for some months. They remain close friends and are committed to raising their son together in NYC."
Weisz, 40, and Aronofsky, 41, had been engaged since 2005 but never married.
Weisz told Redbook in 2009, "Darren and I are completely committed to 'until death do us part,' although we haven't made it official with the paperwork yet...It's not for any political reason or that we're waiting for this or for that, but maybe one day we will have an official ceremony."
Still, Weisz admitted at the time that maintaining a relationship had its challenges. "I don't think balance is something you get from someone else; it's something women have to find from within," she told the magazine. "For me, finding balance is still a work in progress. Darren provides the foundation, but I'm still figuring out my own juggling act."
