Actress and producer Reese Witherspoon, along with her husband Jim Toth, have recently announced their separation after a 12-year long marital bond. The news was shared by the couple through a joint statement released on her verified Instagram account last Friday.
“We have certain personal information that we want to convey…,” the statement reads. “It is with a great deal of care and thoughtfulness that we have come to the arduous decision of dissolving our marriage.”
The statement further expresses the couple’s appreciation of “all the wonderful years they have spent together” and their determination to move forward with love, compassion, and a sense of mutual respect towards all that they have built together.
As they embark on this new chapter of their lives, the couple emphasizes their utmost priority towards their son and entire family. The matter of their separation is a deeply personal one, and they are grateful for everyone’s understanding and support in maintaining their family’s privacy during these trying times.
Reese and Jim share a son named Tennessee James, aged 10. Reese also has two children, daughter Ava (23) and son Deacon (19), from her previous marriage to fellow actor Ryan Phillippe, whom she divorced in 2008.
