Army Wives' Catherine Bell and husband Adam Beason have separated after 17 years of marriage, Bell's rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Bell, 43, and Beason, a screenwriter, are parents to Gemma, 8, and Ronan, 14 months.

The actress told Us in April her and Beason's son Ronan was "the happiest baby ever!"

At the time, Bell said it was too soon to tell if "he's a mommy's boy or a daddy's boy. His heart belongs to his sister!"
