When revealing that they were going their separate ways last month, the couple shared a joint statement on their Instagram Stories alongside a photo of themselves wearing tennis gear. 

Explaining that they secretly filed for divorce last year, the statement reads, “After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down”.

“In 2023 we jointly filed to end our marriage. We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change”.

The pair closed off by adding, “We forever share in our devotion and love for our children. We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family's wish for privacy”.

Isla and Sacha first met in 2001 and got engaged three years later. The couple went on to tie the knot in October 2010 in Paris.

They share three children together- 17-year-old Oliva, 13-year-old Elula and nine-year-old Montgomery.
