In what could be a setback for fans, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor have decided to split after 17 years of wedlock.
According to reports, the couple released a joint statement stating that after spending so many years together, they have decided to go their separate ways.
“With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate. Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time,” Stiller, 51, and Taylor, 45, said.
The couple tied the knot in May 2000 at an ocean front ceremony in Hawaii.
Stiller and Taylor, who costarred in ‘Zoolander’, ‘ Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story’, ‘ Tropic Thunder’, ‘ Arrested Development’ and ‘ Zoolander 2’, are parents to daughter Ella, 15, and son Quinlin, 11.
