Barrymore and Will Kopelman had been together for four years. In April, they officially separated. This week, however, Barrymore finalized the split by filing for divorce.
The couple have two daughters together: Olive, 3, and Frankie, 2. After their separation, they announced that they would continue to work towards being a family.
“Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family,” they wrote in a statement. “Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.”
Especially important to the couple are their two kids. “Our children are our universe,” the statement continued. “And we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.”
