IOL Evan REUTERS Actress Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell are getting divorced

Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have split up.

The couple, who got married in October 2012 and welcomed their first baby boy into the world last July, have confirmed they have ended their marriage.

A spokesperson for the duo told UsMagazine.com: "Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have decided to separate.

"They both love and respect one another and will of course remain committed to co-parenting their son. This is a mutual decision and the two remain close friends."

A source also indicated the 26-year-old actress and 28-year-old British star were having problems for some time, adding: "They love each other so much but it just wasn't right."

Jamie previously praised Evan for being a "warrior" after she gave birth to their son, whose name they have never revealed, "naturally and peacefully" last summer.

The former 'Billy Elliot' star first met the 'True Blood' actress on set the set of Green Day's music video 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' in 2005, but split a year later before reuniting in 2011.

The couple were last photographed together at LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles last November, and Jamie recently deleted his official Twitter page.
