Jim Toth and Reese Witherspoon are divorcing.
Before their 12th wedding anniversary on Sunday, the Oscar winner, who turned 47 on Wednesday, and her talent agent husband, 52, announced in a joint statement on Friday.
“We have some personal news to share… It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they said. “We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness and mutual respect for everything we have created together.”
“Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter,” they added. “These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”
According to a source, “They are the closest of friends, and this is a mutually agreeable choice. They are very dedicated to working as a team to parent. They care about their entire family and want everything to go as smoothly as possible for them.”
In December 2010, Witherspoon and Toth made their engagement public. They later married in March 2011 at her estate in Ojai, California, in a low-key ceremony. Tennessee James, age 10, is their child together, while Witherspoon also has two children with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe: daughter Ava, age 23, and son Deacon, age 19.
In July, the Big Little Lies actress shared photos of herself with Toth in honor of his birthday. She wrote in the Instagram caption, “Happy birthday to my sweet hubby, JT! Don’t know anyone who loves Tour de France / road biking / @arsenal / @nashvillesc / @steelers …. oh and GOLF … basically all sports more than YOU. Love you so much!”

Last year, she posted on Instagram to commemorate their 11th wedding anniversary “Happy Anniversary JT!! 11 years of adventures, love & laughter. I feel so lucky to share this wonderful life with you.”
Witherspoon described having her first encounter with Toth at a friend’s house soon after splitting up with Jake Gyllenhaal in a 2012 interview with ELLE. She praised him for saving her from an awkward circumstance and called him a “really good person.”
“It happened out of the blue,” she said then. “This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was, like, [slurring, scowling, pointing finger in her face] ‘You don’t know me.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I know. I don’t know you!’ Jim came over and said, ‘Please excuse my friend. He’s just broken up with someone.’ Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That’s just kind of who he is, a really good person.”
In 2016, shortly after the couple celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary, the Wild actress spoke to PEOPLE about some of her husband’s best traits: “He’s an incredible man, a wonderful organizer, a great leader. He knows how to get people together. … He’s very patient and funny with the kids. And he really encourages them to see the humor in life.”
