Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson and his wife Christina Evangeline are divorcing after 11 years of marriage.

The two have been separated for more than a year but have continued co-parenting their two daughters, Georgia and Gianna.

Thompson is active in his daughters’ lives though the kids spend most of their time with their mom.

The couple grew apart due to Thompson spending a lot of time in Los Angeles shooting his NBC comedy Kenan while Evangeline remained in New York City.

“Kenan and Christina are completely amicable. They remain close as co-parents and have remained very close throughout the separation,” another source told Us Weekly, “Being married for 11 years, together for 14, changes a lot of things. They really just grew apart and wanted different things. There’s nothing juicy about why they split.”

The couple had been together four years before deciding to get married in November 2011 in a private ceremony at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
