The 37-year-old Step Up star took to Instagram on Monday, April 2 to announce the couple's split, featuring a joint statement from the duo.
The statement reads,
We have something we would like to share … It feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into ‘alternative facts.’ So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction.
We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy.
Here's the post, check it out.
The pair first met in 2006, while filming Step Up and eventually began dating after the filming finished. They became engaged in early September 2008 in Maui before getting married on 11 July 2009. Their wedding ceremony was held at Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu, California.

Jenna previously had affairs with Justin Timberlake and Shane West.
