After 12 years of marriage Ashley Judd and Dario Franchitti are deciding to call it quits. The 44-year-old actress and the 39-year-old racecar driver tweeted “Family Forever” to each other as a statement was released that they have decided to get divorced.
According to their statement,
“We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed.”
Often the idea of a single family unit gets lost amongst divorced couples, where often each parent goes off into the world and creates a new smaller family unit. However Judd and Franchitti’s commitment to their family unit is refreshing and ultimately in the best interest of their children. Reportedly, the celebrities hope to continue to celebrate birthdays and holidays as a family for the sake of their two children.
