They said the decision was made "jointly and amicably".

"After nine years of marriage, we would like to announce that we have separated," they each posted on Instagram.

"We have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go our separate ways.

"As our only priority is managing this difficult transition for our daughter, we would ask that our privacy is respected at this sensitive time to protect her well-being.

"We will be making no further comment."
