“To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public,” it added. “We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”

The celebrity duo have shared their experiences about parenting as they have a four-year-old son named Axl.

“I have no idea what I’m doing half the time,” Duhamel told Ellen DeGeneres. “She’s definitely more evolved than I am, and more patient. But I feel like I’m much more– you know, having a kid when I was 40 years old is much different than having one at 22, so I’m a little bit more mature than I was then.”

In January, the couple shared pictures on social media as they celebrated their eight years of marriage.
