Kenan Thompson and Christina Evangeline have split after more than a decade of marriage, TMZ reports.

In a piece filed Thursday morning, the publication cited sources claiming the two have been informally separated and co-parenting their two children for “over a year now.” While divorce proceedings haven’t yet taken place, TMZ adds that such formalities are indeed expected to happen at some point.

The two tied the knot in 2011 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.

In his namesake NBC sitcom, Thompson—who last year appeared in the Home Alone franchise entry Home Sweet Home Alone—plays a widowed father of two daughters. In a February 2021 Tonight Show interview, the history-making SNL star joked that Evangeline “didn’t love” the widower aspect of the plot.

“She was like, ‘Oh, so I’m dead?’” Thompson said, per People. “But, I mean, she was just giving me a hard time. But I was like, ‘Yeah…it’s not you, you know what I mean? It’s a show. It’s a different thing.’” In another Kenan-promoting interview around the same time, this time on the Today show, the comedian and actor explained the NBC series merely mirrors a portion of his reality.

“Everything else is kind of creative liberty, if you will, like my relationship with my father-in-law is actually really wonderful and my wife, thank God she’s still with me,” he explained.

Neither Kenan nor Christina have publicly commented on Thursday’s claims of an impending divorce.
