Actress Mayim Bialik and her husband Michael Stone are divorcing after 9 years of marriage.
The Big Bang Theory star announced the news on her blog.
"After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to 'Irreconcilable Differences,'" she wrote, adding, “divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly.”
Bialik and Stone have two children together; Miles, 7, and Fredrick, 4.
“The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision," she wrote. "Relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose,” she continued, LA Times reports.
The former Blossom star then asked for privacy during this difficult time in their lives, saying “Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain.”
"The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that’s what we are focusing on."
