Sean Hannity and Jill Rhodes have called it quits after more than two decades of marriage.

The Fox News host and his wife, a former journalist, confirmed their divorce in a statement to USA TODAY.

“Sean and Jill are committed to working together for the best interests of their children,” the couple said in a statement. “Amicable agreements were entered into over four years ago between Sean and Jill. They maintain a close relationship as parents to their children.”

The statement added: “Neither will have any further comments and ask for the sake of their children that their privacy be respected.”

Though Wednesday marks the first time the former couple publicly confirmed their split, they quietly divorced over a year ago.
