After over a decade together, Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend are headed for a breakup. The Mad Men alumna broke the news of her separation from the Super Troopers star in a joint statement released via Instagram on Thursday (October 17).
“Twelve years ago we fell in love and became partners. We joined our two amazing families, had countless laughs, made wonderful friends and were blessed with incredible opportunities,” the 44-year-old starts her message. “Today we take our next step together, but on separate paths. We will always be grateful for the love we’ve shared and will always work together to raise our two beautiful dogs.”
Hendricks writes in closing: “We will be taking time to rediscover ourselves in this transition and we thank you for your patience and support in giving us the space to do so.”
Trend and Hendricks’ split comes just a week after the couple marked their 10th wedding anniversary since the stars wed in New York on October 11, 2009, after meeting through a mutual acquaintance, Hendricks' Mad Men castmate Vincent Kartheiser. As PEOPLE noted, Hendricks was also said to have been spotted at an event in Los Angeles without her wedding ring.
As yet, Arend has not issued a public statement of his own about the separation.
