Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell are separating after nearly two years of marriage.

The 26-year-old American Gothic star and 28-year-old English actor confirmed the news in a statement to UsWeekly magazine on Wednesday.

"Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have decided to separate. They both love and respect one another and will of course remain committed to co-parenting their son. This is a mutual decision and the two remain close friends," a representative for the couple said.

Wood and Bell, who share a 10-month-old baby boy, met on the set of Green Day music video Wake Me Up When September Ends back in 2004.

The couple married eight years later, in October 2012, and welcomed their baby last July, although the tot's name has never been revealed.

Us reports Wood opened up about the struggles of balancing motherhood and her career back in November during a screening of her film Charlie Countryman.

"I've been having separation anxiety because I'm so used to him being right here all the time. They kind of become a part of you, you know "It was my dream to be a mom, so I'm loving it. I love it," she shared.

The outlet reports Wood and Bell last appeared together on a red carpet that same month, for the LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles.

A spokesperson for the couple declined to offer further details about the reason for the split.

However, a source suggested Wood and Bell had simply drifted apart.

"They love each other so much but it just wasn't right," the insider said.
