David Schwimmer and his wife, Zoe Buckman, have separated after nearly seven years of marriage.

“It is with great love, respect and friendship that we have decided to take some time apart while we determine the future of our relationship,” the couple said in a statement furnished to Gossip Cop. “Our priority is, of course, our daughter’s happiness and well being during this challenging time, and so we ask for your support and respect for our privacy as we continue to raise her together and navigate this new chapter for our family.”

The actor met Buckman in 2007 while he was in London directing the comedy, Run, Fat Boy, Run. The “Friends” star and the British photographer quietly wed in June 2010 in small, private ceremony. A little less than a year later in May 2011, Buckman and Schwimmer welcomed their daughter Cleo. She’ll turn 6 next month.

After a number of years directing, Schwimmer returned to acting last year, appearing as the late Robert Kardashian in the FX series, “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” He also appeared alongside Jim Sturgess on the AMC series “Feed the Beast,” which revolved around two close friend who run into trouble with the mob after opening a restaurant in New York City. This was the first marriage for both Schwimmer and Buckman.
