Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik are calling it quits after four years of marriage.
“After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners,” Deschanel, 39, and Pechenik, 47, said in a joint statement to USA TODAY Friday.
The former “New Girl” star and Pechenik tied the knot in June 2015, just a month before welcoming their first child, daughter Elsie, 4. They also share two-year-old son Charlie.
Deschanel and Pechenik also founded two businesses together: The Farm Project, which aims to reconnect people with their food, and Lettuce Grow, which helps people grow fresh produce from home.

“We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children,” the statement continued.”Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.”
Deschanel was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie musician Ben Gibbard from 2009 to 2012.
