Blair Underwood and wife Desiree are calling it quits.

The 56-year-old L.A. Law actor took to Instagram on Sunday (May 30) to share a joint statement with Desiree, also 56, announcing that they are splitting up after 27 years of marriage.

“After a tremendous amount of thought, prayer & work on ourselves individually & collectively, we have come to the conclusion to end our marriage that began 27 years ago,” the statement reads. “It has truly been a beautifully journey. Our proudest achievements are our three incredible children. Three souls to which God entrusted us.”

Blair and Desiree married in 1994 and share three kids together – daughter Brielle, 22, and sons Blake, 19, and Paris, 24.

“We continue to be awed & humbled by the blessings of parenting. We have always put their best interests first & will continue to do so,” the statement continued. “We will continue to be the best of friends and co-parents and have the utmost respect for one another as we embark upon this new chapter of our lives, separately.”

Blair and Desiree concluded, “We thank you all for all your support throughout the years & we humbly ask for privacy & understanding during this new season of change. Blair & Desiree Underwood.”
