It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Erin and I are splitting up. With our hectic work schedules we could not be busier, and over the last few years have grown apart. She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mom to our kids. It has come to my attention that things are being written and said to sensationalize a situation that is simply not sensational. Any quote attributed to me is completely false and solely meant by haters to undermine our intention to continue to get along, protect and raise our daughters, and be examples of successful co-parents. We ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time as we focus on what is important to us, our girls. Peace and love, Ian

It’s a sad state of affairs for Ziering, who had experienced a career resurgence of sorts this year as part of the recent reboot BH90210. Yet, despite his obvious pain surrounding his divorce, he also took time in the Instagram post to give his wife some credit for being a wonderful mom to their two daughters.

“She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mom to our kids,” he wrote.

He also took a moment to clear up any rumors that are going around regarding the demise of his marriage to Ludwig.

“It has come to my attention that things are being written and said to sensationalize a situation that is simply not sensational,” he wrote. “Any quote attributed to me is completely false and solely meant by haters to undermine our intention to continue to get along, protect and raise our daughters, and be examples of successful co-parents.”
