In a move that sent shockwaves through pop culture, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have officially announced their separation.


For years, the couple had stood strong as what people referred to as “relationship goals.” But now the golden couple has fallen, announcing their split after eight years of marriage. Faris and Pratt made the brief statement on their shared Instagram account, and Pratt added the same words to his public Facebook page.

“Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” the statement read. “Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.”

The couple share one son, Jack, 5. The pair met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and became engaged the following year. They wed in 2009.

Reports of the split surfaced earlier in 2017 when Pratt was seen in public not donning his wedding ring. Faris opened up about her marriage troubles last December on her podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified. “I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that of course in this crazy world where he’s off doing movies and I’m in L.A. raising our child, of course I’m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would,” the actress shared.

And to People, she said another gem of wisdom about having such a public marriage. “I don’t think that’s something, when you’re an actor, that you’re prepared for,” she said. “There are two different roles that you play — the one on-camera and the one in public. That’s the tricky part.”
