The pair announced the sad news with a joint statement.

“Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple. It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship.”

“While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.”

The couple, who have never married, share two sons together nine-year-old Alexander “Sasha” Pete and seven-year-old Samuel “Sammy” Kai.

Just last week, Liev won hearts when he walked the red carpet with his son Sasha at the Emmys.
