The couple, who tied the knot in 2012, have two daughters together – Olive, 3, and Frankie, 23 months. Speaking to HELLO! last year about her art consultant husband, the 41-year-old actress said, "Will is such a good father." She added, "When I see him with our children, it just brings out the best in him. The love of our children is, like, everything in the world to us."
The couple have decided to split after three years of marriage
Drew has previously revealed that her children mean everything to her, telling HELLO!: "I felt that my life started the day my kids were born and everything I had before was something to be used as wisdom and experience for them.
"It's like life really wasn't as important before they were born but you don't want to have not have existed because it gives you tips along the way."
"They’ve been having some difficulties, but they remain close for the sake of their kids," a source revealed
The 41-year-old actress spoke to Us Weekly about her marriage to the art consultant last November, and revealed that their marriage is largely based on compromise.
She said: “My husband and I compromise on a lot of things... It’s the little things that you can change that can make a relationship stronger."
"Compromise is about changing yourself for the better. It’s an opportunity for you to become a more functional, better person," she continued.
The news of the couple's separation comes soon after Drew revealed her new tattoo featuring her daughters' names written playfully on her wrist. The Miss You Already star looked in good spirits as she posted a photo of her new body ink on social media, and captioned the post: "Getting a great little lifetime note on my arm."
