Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and wife Nicole Patenburg are ending their seven-year marriage.

The two announced their split via a joint statement.

“After much thought and with great sadness, we have decided to end our marriage. We continue to care and have respect for one another and share eternal love for our daughter and her well-being,” the couple said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We ask for personal privacy for ourselves and our daughter as we navigate these new steps as a family.”

It is unknown when or whether they will officially file for divorce to be legally separated.

Edmonds and Patenburg got married in May 2014 with guest celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey and Carole Sager. The two share a 12-year-old daughter, Peyton Nicole.

This was Edmonds’s second marriage. Prior to Patenburg, he was married to Tracey Edmonds from 1992-2005. When Tracey filed for divorce, she said the reason was due to “irreconcilable differences.”
