After six years of marriage, David Schwimmer and Zoe Buckman are taking their space.
The People v. O. J. Simpson actor and British photographer first crossed paths in 2007 when Schwimmer was doing principal photography in London for his romantic comedy Run, Fatboy, Run, starring Simon Pegg and Thandie Newton. The two confirmed their engagement in March 2010, wedding in a private ceremony that summer.
Us Weekly was the first to report on their break.
This is the first marriage for Schwimmer and Buckman, who share a five-year-old daughter, Cleo Buckman Schwimmer.
"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 in an emailed statement to USA TODAY. “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.”
