Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend announce separation

Christina Hendricks and her husband of a decade, actor Geoffrey Arend, have separated.

The former couple announced the news in a statement on Thursday, insisting they plan to “work together” to raise their “two beautiful dogs”.

“Twelve years ago we fell in love and became partners,” the statement reads. “We joined our two amazing families, had countless laughs, made wonderful friends and were blessed with incredible opportunities. Today we take our next step together, but on separate paths.


“We will always be grateful for the love we’ve shared… We will be taking time to rediscover ourselves in this transition and we thank you for your patience and support in giving us the space to do so.”

Hendricks and the Madam Secretary actor wed in New York in October 2009. They celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary earlier this month.
