Reese Witherspoon and her husband jim toth, sent shockwaves online today after the couple announced they have mutually decided to end their marriage. The announcement, which was made in a joint statement on the actress’ Instagram page, comes days before Witherspoon and Toth’s 12th wedding anniversary.

In the upload, the couple announced that given the “difficult decision” to go their separate ways, they have had “many wonderful years together” filled with “love, kindness and respect” and will continue to navigate in that order as they step into this new chapter of their lives. The joint statement reads:

“We have some personal news to share… It was with great care and consideration that we made the difficult decision to divorce. We have shared so many wonderful years together and we move forward with deep love, kindness and mutual respect for all that we have created together.”

Further in the statement, Witherspoon and Toth note that their top priority is the well-being of their 10-year-old son Tennessee Toth and their blended family, which consists of adult children Ava and Deacon Phillippe, to whom the Naturally blond Actress shares with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. The duo closed the post by asking for privacy and respect from the public as they go through this process. In addition to uploading, Witherspoon appears to have temporarily disabled comments across her Instagram page.

While no further details were released about the reasons behind Witherspoon and Toth’s split, a source told People magazine that their relationship seems to have run its course and that they are working to make this transition process smooth for everyone involved.

“They really are best friends and it’s such an amicable decision. They are so committed to being parents together. They invest in their whole family and make this as smooth as possible for everyone.”

Witherspoon and the talent agent first met in January 2010 at a mutual friend’s party following the former’s public split from actor Jake Gyllenhaal, according to Elle magazine. In December of the same year, the couple announced that they were engaged after less than a year of dating. Witherspoon and Toth eventually married on March 26, 2011 in an intimate ceremony at their ranch in Ojai, California and would welcome their son, Tennessee, the following year.

Prior to the divorce announcement, Witherspoon and Toth were last seen publicly together on her Instagram on Jan. 1, 2023, when she uploaded a photo of herself and Toth enjoying the sunset with their son, Tennessee, as the three greeted the New Year .
