After 11 years together – which in Hollywood is equivalent to about 50 years anywhere else – actress Jenny Garth, 39, is divorcing husband and actor Peter Facinelli, 38.
“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,” Garth and Facinelli told PEOPLEmagazine in a joint statement.
The couple has three daughters, 14, 9 and 5. They first met in 1996 on the set of the filmAn Unfinished Affair, and headed down the aisle five years later.
Garth is best known for her role on the 90s drama Beverly Hills, 90210. She also finished a surprising fourth in 2007’s version of Dancing with the Stars.
Facinelli is best known for his roles in the wildly popular Twilight movies, and appears on the show Nurse Jackie.
