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 and Martinez began dating in 2010 after co-starring in the movie "Dark Tide." They got engaged in 2012 and revealed they were expecting a child in 2013. They were married in France in July 2013.
