Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer are calling it quits



It's official, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer have split after nine years of marriage. 

"After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple," they said in a joint statement to PEOPLE. "As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship."

Maguire, 41, and Meyer, 39, met in early 2003  and married four years later in Hawaii. 

I'm walking on air. I'm getting married, starting a family and have an amazing company.

At the time Meyer, a jewelry designer, told USA Today it was the best time of her life. 

According to PEOPLE magazine, Maguire expressed similar sentiments. He revealed that despite his rocky childhood, settling down was alway a big priority for him. 

And settling down was exactly what the now ex-couple did. 

Maguire and Meyer are parents to Ruby, 9, and Otis, 7. 

In 2007 Maguire lit up while talking about being a dad. 

"I love my daughter," Maguire told PEOPLE magazine. "Yeah, it's definitely amazing. It's like everybody says, all the clichés are true - it's indescribable and you just have to be there to understand it. You know, you don't really get it until you're there."


The ex-couple's statement didn't  say whether they have filed for divorce.
