Peter Facinelli has split from his first wife and fellow actor Jennie Garth after 11 years of marriage. The pair's matrimony was seen as one of the few rock steady partnerships in the celebrity game, yielding them three kids - Luca, 14, Lola, nine, and Fiona, five - and the news will come as a surprise to many.
The couple released a statement, reported by Us Magazine, that read "While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children." It continued "We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time."
