David Schwimmer is 'on a break' in his real life.
According to E! Online, David and his wife Zoe Buckman confirmed the news of their separation after six 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. 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 pair told E! Online.
The couple have a daughter together, a five-year-old girl named Cleo Buckman Schwimmer.
Schwimmer, 50, and Buckman, 31, have been together for more than 10 years.
They first met on the sets of Run in 2007, which filmed in London. A few years after that, Zoe moved to Los Angeles to live in with the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. star.
Although the couple has always kept their relationship private, Schwimmer did talk about his daughter while appearing on The Late Night Show.
He said, 'Listen, I don't know how the other parents are out there, but my thought when I pour myself a glass of wine that my wife and I have over dinner and my daughter says, 'Can I try that?' I thought, 'Well, if you start saying no then they're just going to want it more.' So, I thought 'Yeah, all right. Go ahead, sweetie. Have a sip.' And luckily she was like, 'Blah! No!''
