Ricky Schroder’s Wife, Andrea, Files for Divorce After Nearly 24 Years of Marriage

Ricky Schroder and his wife, Andrea Schroder, are calling it quits just weeks ahead of their 24th wedding anniversary. The interior designer, 44, filed for divorce from the NYPD Blue actor, 46, Friday, September 9, Us Weekly can confirm.

Andrea filed divorce documents in the Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. The former couple — who married September 26, 1992 — are parents of sons Holden, 24, and Luke, 23, and daughters Cambrie, 19, and Faith, 15.

TMZ reported Tuesday, September 13, that Andrea is seeking sole legal and physical custody of Faith, but requested that Ricky be granted visitation rights. Andrea is also reportedly seeking spousal support.

The Silver Spoons alum made headlines in 2013 after he reportedly pulled Faith from Malibu High School following concerns that the school was contaminated with PCBs, lead, pesticides and mold. Ricky told TMZ at the time that he removed Faith "as an abundance of caution" after three teachers were diagnosed with thyroid cancer and several others experienced migraines, skin rashes and hair loss.

In July, Andrea shared an Instagram photo of herself at the Gardens of Versailles in Paris, where she hinted at new changes in her life.

"Life is moving so fast and there are moments when I grieve the stages of life that I used to dream about that now have passed; like getting married, having a baby, building a home, first day of school or last day of college," she wrote at the time. "These moments have all come and gone at lightening speed. So now I walk into a new, less predictable future that mid life brings, carrying faith, hope and love."
