Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman are getting a divorce.

It’s nothing but sad news this morning for actress Drew Barrymore, 41, and her husband, art consultant Will Kopelman, with reports coming to light that the pair are planning on separating.

At this stage it’s only the recollections of a “source” suggesting their marriage is on the rocks, reports PEOPLE magazine. The couple have been married for four years and have two children together, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 2.

Drew is notoriously shy about her private life, but does post a lot of cultural and throwback photos to her official Instagram account. Just yesterday, she showed off a picture of her children's names which she now has tattooed on the inside of her wrist.

In past interviews, Drew has spoken about what it was like to have post-natal depression, and she's a huge advocate of the issue.

She also only rarely posts photos of her family on social media.

Instagram is awash with fans writing their condolences about the divorce news. Others did seemingly take it too far with "Please think hard before you break up a family," but these commenters were firmly put in their place by others hoping Drew makes the right decision for herself.

We wish them both well in their life, together or apart.
