Los Angeles - Peter Facinelli is splitting with his wife of 11 years.

The Twilight Saga star - who has daughters Luca, 14, Lola, nine and five-year-old Fiona with Beverly Hills 90210 actress Jennie Garth - says the pair will remain dedicated to their family but is hoping for "privacy".

'Privacy and respect'

The couple said in a statement: "While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time."

Peter and Jennie first met on the set of TV movie An Unfinished Affair in 1996 and married five years later in 2001.

The 38-year-old actor is now best known for his appearance as Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight movies alongside Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, while Jennie is most celebrated for her role as Kelly Taylor in Beverly Hills 902010 and for coming fourth on Dancing with the Stars in 2007.

Peter will next be seen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, and portrays Dr Fitch Cooper on the Showtime TV series Nurse Jackie.
