47 year old actor Dylan Walsh, who plays Dr. Sean McNamara on FX's Nip/Tuck, has filed for divorce from his wife, actor Joanna Going who is also 47. Even though Hollywood divorces are relatively common this split has come as a surprise to many.
The two actors, who have been married for six years, have cited the ever popular irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. Walsh is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old daughter, Stella. In the divorce papers, Walsh has also stated that he will be paying spousal support.
This is the second divorce for Walsh. Back in 2003, he split from Big Love actress Melora Walters after seven years and two children together. Could this be a case of the seven year itch?
It seems that this has been a big week for celebrity divorces with Dexter's Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter announcing they would divorce. Plus Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have announced they've split. Along with Scarlett Johannson and Ryan Reynolds who have also separated recently.
