"While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children," Facinelli and Beverly Hills, 90210 star Garth, 39, told Us in a statement of their girls Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5.

"We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together."

After meeting on a movie set in 1996, the couple wed in 2001.
