It's over for Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli. The couple is ending their marriage after 11 years, E! Online has confirmed.

"While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children ... We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time," the couple said in a joint statement.

Their confirmation comes after many rumors started swirling that the longtime couple was headed toward a split.

“Like a lot of couples do, they simply grew apart,” a source told Scallywag and Vagabond Monday, adding fuel to the divorce fire, which began way back in the summer.

Garth, who starred on the long-running drama "Beverly Hills, 90210," married the "Twilight" actor in January 2001. They have three children together: Luca Bella, 14, Lola Ray, 9, and Fiona Eve, 5.
