According to Hollywood Life, Scorsone signed a petition to divorce Giles on Friday, May 8. The divorce proceedings have already been issued to a commissioner, Kimberly Dotson. During their marriage, the pair had three children together — Eliza, 7; Paloma Michaela “Pippa,” 3; and Arwen Lucinda “Lucky,” 5 months. Neither Scorsone nor Giles has shared what caused the split, though a rep for the couple did release a statement regarding their separation with the outlet.
“Caterina and Rob have separated,” the statement read. “They remain friends and are committed to co-parenting their children in a spirit of love.”
