Colin and Livia Giuggioli have split up after 22 years together. They have two sons, Matteo and Luca.
The couple met in 1996 on the set of British-Italian television series Nostromo and were married a year later in Italy, where Giuggioli is from.
"Colin and Livia Firth have separated," a spokesperson told E! News. "They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children. They kindly ask for privacy. There will be no further comment."
The announcement comes two years after Livia Firth admitted to having had an affair with Marco Brancaccia, who she accused of stalking her. She later dropped the charges against him and the Firths reunited.
"A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to separate. During that time Livia briefly became involved with former friend Mr Brancaccia. The Firths have since reunited," reads a statement from the couple in the Sunday Times.
