Ben, 42, and Jen, 43, tied the knot on June 29, 2005. Together, they have three kids — nine-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina and three-year-old Samuel.
TMZ reports the divorce is amicable, as the two will share custody of their children.
While the split was seemingly a long time coming, the report says the filing will not be done immediately, as they will wait until “all of the property and custody issues are resolved.”
