Yes, you read that right. After 18 years of being together, Mad Men star Jon Hamm and?Jennifer Westfeldt mutually agreed to separate. While his female fans might rejoice over this?news, many people are shocked.
In a recent interview to?People, Jon and Jennifer gave a joint statement stating,??With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history.We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward.?
However there are a lot of speculations about the reason behind their split. According to a?report by NY Daily News, the reason behind the split is that Jennifer wanted to get married?and have kids but Jon wasn’t keen about taking their relationship forward.
The source told NY Daily News, ?They were definitely not on the same page. They would?talk about it and he always said ?maybe,? but last year it became ?No, I don’t want kids.?
What?s surprising is that when the two have been asked about marriage and kids in the past,?both of them have given contradicting statements.
In 2012, Jennifer gave a statement to The New York Times saying that, ?I?ve thought about?this a lot lately. I never thought I?d be this age and not have kids. But my life has also gone in?a million ways I never anticipated?, reports?NY Daily News
The article also stated that in 2010 John gave a statement to ?Parade magazine and said, ?I?don?t have the marriage chip, and neither of us have the greatest examples of marriages in our?families.?
He told the Hollywood Reporter in 2011 that children were ?always on the?periphery of the discussion,? adding that babies were ?not for us just yet.?While the reason for the split might not be clear at the moment but we are sure in the coming?days, the cat will be out of the bag!
