Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have separated after nearly 10 years together, according to reports.

The couple, who were engaged for seven years, reportedly ended their engagement earlier this year, People reports.

As of now, neither Wilde, 36, nor Sudeikis, 45 have commented on the breakup.

The former couple, who share son Otis Alexander, six, and daughter Daisy, four, first began dating in November 2011 after meeting at a finale party for Saturday Night Live.

"I met her at a finale party for SNL," Sudeikis previously told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. “We hit it off that night.”

However, according to Wilde, she had to have a friend intervene and give Sudeikis her number.

"Over the next six months we kept running into each other," she recalled. "[One night], my best guy friend walked up to him and said: ‘This is Olivia’s number. Use it.’ That was the beginning,” the actress revealed to Allure.

Sudeikis proposed in 2012, with the couple welcoming their first child in 2014.

Shortly after, Wilde revealed that she and Sudeikis weren’t in a rush to get married because they were “seriously connected” through parenthood.

“We are seriously connected," she told Net-A-Porter.com's The Edit. "Before you have a child, marriage is the ultimate commitment and promise to one another, and then once you have a child, it's like: ‘Oh, we're committed and promised already.'"

The couple welcomed their daughter in October 2016.
