The couple, who have been married for six years, have been separated since April 21, according to Jay's court filing that was made the same day, an E! News report says. It's not known why they're splitting up, but documents filed by the former NFL quarterback cite "irreconcilable differences."
"With great sadness after 10 years together, we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce," the two said in a statement on April 26.
"We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of. This is just the situation of two people growing apart. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate this difficult time within our family."
Jay, 36, and Kristin, 33, have three children together: Camden, 7, Jaxon, 5, and Saylor, 4. Jay is said to be seeking joint custody, E! News reports.
The retired Chicago Bears player and former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills began dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2011, but called their engagement off and broke up. They reconciled that same year and married in 2013.
We're sad to hear Jay and Kristin are splitting up and we wish them both well as they navigate this divorce together and continue to co-parent.
