On Wednesday, Christina Hendricks put up a favorite Halloween photo of herself and husband Geoffrey Arend on Instagram. On Thursday, an entirely different post appeared from Hendricks, one announcing her split from Arend—a development confirmed by Us Weekly. "Twelve years ago we fell in love and became partners," their joint statement reads. "We joined our two amazing families, had countless laughs, made wonderful friends and were blessed with incredible opportunities." Now, however, "we take our next step together, but on separate paths."

The 44-year-old Mad Men and Good Girls star wed the 41-year-old Madam Secretary actor in October 2009, two years after being introduced by Hendricks' Mad Men co-star Vincent Kartheiser. Just last week, around their 10th anniversary, Arend put up what may have been a hint of what was to come: a solo Instagram post of him with his pups, with the caption, "Anytime you're feeling low, bookend yourself in dogs. Can't recommend it enough." Those dogs are mentioned in the couple's latest announcement: "We will always be grateful for the love we've shared and will always work together to raise our two beautiful dogs."
