“It is with great love, respect and friendship that we have decided to take some time apart while we determine the future of our relationship,” the pair said on Wednesday in a statement to Us Weekly.

“Our priority is, of course, our daughter’s happiness and well-being during this challenging time, and so we ask for your support and respect for our privacy as we continue to raise her together and navigate this new chapter for our family,” they added.

The couple have a 5-year-old daughter named Cleo, whom they welcomed into their family in May 2011.

The 50-year-old Friends star and 31-year-old British photographer Buckman have been together for over 10 years. They met in 2007 when Scwimmer was directing the comedy movie Run Fatboy Run in London. Buckman then moved to Los Angeles to be with her newfound love. The pair then married in 2010; it was the first wedding for both.

The couple’s last public appearance together was in October 2016, for the opening night of The Front Page, held at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City.
