Their statements come less than 24 hours after Today reported that Jonas filed for divorce in Florida. The petition stated that "the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken," adding, "It is in the best interests of the minor children that the parties have shared parental responsibility."

The couple, who first met in 2016, and later tied the knot twice in 2019 — once in Las Vegas, and then again in France, share two daughters together. Turner gave birth to their first daughter, Willa in 2020, and two years later, they welcomed their second daughter in July 2022.

We’re so excited to be expanding the family. It’s the best blessing ever.”
