"Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have decided to separate," the rep tells Us Weekly. "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."
Evan Rachel Wood has also announced her separation from her husband of two years, Jamie Bell via twitter. The 26-year-old actress posted the following tweet a few hours ago.
Twitter break for a while. ...to be continued.— Evan Rachel Wood (@evanrachelwood) May 28, 2014
However, Jamie Bell has not spoken publicly about his relationship with the Facing the Wind actress. He also deleted his official Twitter account recently.
A source also told US Weekly, "They love each other so much but it just wasn't right."
28-year-old Jamie Bell first met Evan Rachel Wood in 2004 on the set of Green Day's music video "Wake Me Up When September Ends." The couple got married in October 2012.
Wood and Bell welcomed their first child last July. The name of the baby boy has not yet been revealed. The "Fantastic Four" actor revealed in April that his life had changed after becoming father.
"I am very blessed. I have a healthy son, I have a great wife, I have a good job. I'm living the dream in a lot of ways," Bell told ABC News.
"I don't really put myself first anymore. As soon as that kid comes out, you waive that right," Bell added. "Everything you do, every decision you make, you are thinking 5, 10 years down the line ... a lot of stuff doesn't mean that much anymore. Things affect me less, I'm much calmer than I used to be."
Bell and Wood last appeared together on the red carpet of the LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala in L.A. in November 2013. And Wood also talked about her motherhood experience and hectic schedule in November at the screening of her film Charlie Countryman in NYC.
"I've been having separation anxiety because I’m so used to him being right here all the time. They kind of become a part of you, you know?" she told US Weekly on Nov. 13 of her baby boy. "It was my dream to be a mom, so I'm loving it. I love it."
"He's smiling and laughing. He started rolling over," she said. "He's grabbing things. You know, he's making oohs and aahs."
