After 11 years of marriage, Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli have announced that it's over.
Reps for both actors confirm to CNN that Facinelli, 38 and Garth, 39, are going their separate ways. The two have three daughters together: Luca, 14; Lola, 9; and Fiona, 5.
Facinelli and Garth say in a joint statement, “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”
While Facinelli has been fawned over by "Twilight" fans for his portrayal of Dr. Carlisle Cullen, Jennie Garth is near and dear to the hearts of "Beverly Hills, 90210" fans. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two met on the set of an ABC TV movie in 1996, and wed in 2001.
Garth also has a CMT reality series in the works, and a rep for the show tells CNN that Facinelli doesn't appear in it but the couple's split will be dealt with throughout the series.
Called "Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country," the show is still in production, and is expected to bow on CMT on April 20 at 9 p.m. ET.
