Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have split up after two years of marriage.

In a joint statement Tuesday, Berry and Martinez said, “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce.”

The pair, who co-starred in the 2012 film “Dark Tide” and wed in July 2013, have a son, Maceo, together.

“‎We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son,” Berry and Martinez added. “We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly, our children’s privacy as we go through this difficult period.”

Berry had been married twice before to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet, and has a daughter, Nahla, with model Gabriel Aubry.

Documents filed by Martinez on Tuesday chalk the divorce up to irreconcilable differences, and seek joint custody of Maceo.
