After 10 years of marriage, Armie Hammer, 33, and Elizabeth Chambers, 37, are calling it quits.

On Friday, the two announced the shocking news on Instagram. Along with posting a throwback photo of them as a couple, they wrote, “Thirteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners and then parents. It has been an incredible journey, but together, we’ve decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage.”

“As we enter into this next chapter, our children and relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority,” they added. “We understand this news lends itself to public dialogue, but in the interest of our children and our family, we’re asking for privacy, compassion and love during this time.”

Weeks before their split announcement, Elizabeth paid tribute to Armie on Father’s Day. She wrote on Instagram, “Happy Father’s Day to the master bedtime singer, omelette maker, steak griller, ‘water pusher,' snorkel instructor, story teller and so much more. Our babies couldn’t ask for a more adventurous and entertaining dad and we’re lucky that you’re ours. We love you. ❤️.”

In May, Armie and Elizabeth celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary. Sharing a wedding pic, Elizabeth gushed, “TEN years married, twelve together, thirteen years as best friends. Happy Anniversary, my love. I’m beyond grateful for you, this decade, our family and the dreamiest Friday night anniversary sunset. And thank you to Hopsey’s friend, 6-year-old, Sophie who was at the beach and captured this moment. ❤️.”

A few months ago, they were quarantining together with their kids Harper and Ford in the Cayman Islands. Elizabeth revealed on Instagram, “We’re currently quarantined in the Caymans, which wasn’t planned when we left LA 5 weeks ago for nyc. Due to travel restrictions, school closures and the fact that we were planning to be here with our extended family two weeks later for spring break, we made this decision for the health and safety of our family.”

In January, Armie posted a pic from their New Year’s Eve celebration in Los Cabos, Mexico. He wrote on Instagram, “This is a new beginning to a new year and a new decade. 2019, thanks for having us but don’t let the door hit you on the way out. 2020, you’d better be cool to us or we will fight you back. Hard. The year is already off to a great start... we got together with a group of friends and rang in the new year at @nobuloscabos so the bar is high. But I think we got this. Let’s make this the best one yet.”

Three years ago, Armie opened up about their relationship at the Toronto International Film Festival. He told People magazine, “My wife and I always try to do sweet things for each other, that’s always kind of the mode. I think the most romantic thing you can probably do is try to do something romantic all the time so that you can’t be like, ‘Oh, I was romantic that one time.’ Consistency, consistency.”

More than a decade ago, Armie and Elizabeth met during an “adventure day” with friends in Los Angeles. At the time, Chambers had a boyfriend, but they decided to stay friends until Armie couldn't handle it anymore. Armie revealed to Vulture in 2017, “Our friendship continued to grow and grow until one day when I was like, ‘I can’t be friends with you anymore. You’ve got to break up with your boyfriend, and we’ve got to start dating.’”
