According to the couple, they believe their breakup is what's "best" for their family, writing:
"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."
Aw. While this is sad news, the pair have to do the right thing for their two kids Sam and Alexander AKA "Sasha".
What's interesting is, Mr. Schreiber took Sasha to the 2016 Emmys instead of Naomi. Looking back on it, this was definitely a sign of things to come!
Let's just hope these two divorce peacefully — the last thing we need is another Brangelina!
