Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are separating.

The couple, who were married in 2009, announced the news on Pratt's Facebook page Sunday night.

"Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating," they wrote. "We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."

Faris and Pratt met in 2007 when they co-starred in Take Me Home Tonight (the movie hit theaters in 2011). They wed July 9, 2009, in Bali, Indonesia. Their son, Jack, now 4, was born in August 2012. He arrived nine weeks premature and spend a month in the NICU.

Faris had previously been married to fellow actor Ben Indra from 2004-07.

Pratt recently appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and has a Jurassic World sequel set for 2018 in addition to reprising his role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord in next year's Avengers: Infinity War.

Faris is shooting a fifth season of her CBS sitcom, Mom, and voices a role in The Emoji Movie, currently in theaters.

Pratt also got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in April, when the couple gave their social media followers a sneak peek inside their preparations for that day.

"I couldn't be more proud to call you my husband today," Faris said in one of the posts.
