Filing papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court, McKellar, 37, cited "irreconcilable differences" and listed the date of separation as last week.

Married in March 2009, McKellar and Verta have a one-year-old son, Draco. In her filing, McKellar petitioned for joint physical and legal custody of the boy, TMZ reports.
