Oscarred actor-producer Reese Witherspoon and her talent agent husband Jim Toth said Friday that they have made the “difficult decision to divorce.”
The couple tied the knot in March 2011 at the Witherspoon Ranch in Ojai, California, northwest of Los Angeles. In September 2012, the couple welcomed a baby boy named Tennessee James.
“We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and move forward with deep love, kindness and mutual respect for everything we have created together,” the couple said in a joint statement posted on Witherspoon’s Instagram account.
“Our highest priority is our son and our entire family as we move through this next chapter.”
Witherspoon has two older children — daughter Ava and son Deacon with first husband Ryan Phillippe. The couple divorced in 2007.
Witherspoon, 47, who grew up in Nashville, Tenn., won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her work on the 2005 country film Walk the Line. She has also produced several films and TV shows, including Big Little Lies and The Morning Show.
