It’s particularly heartbreaking, considering the sweet way Sudeikis spoke of their first kiss to Access Hollywood in August.

He said of why he waited a month: ‘I just had a hunch that the second I kissed her, I wasn’t going to end up kissing ever kissing anyone ever again. So, it was like I had to be careful with it.’

The insider added of their split: ‘It’s been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine. The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.’

Wilde, 36, and Sudeikis, 45, began dating in November of 2011, later getting engaged in January of 2013, and they share son Otis, six, and daughter Daisy, four.

They met at the after party for the season 36 finale of Saturday Night Live, striking up a romance a few months later.

Sudeikis recounted the story on The Late Show in 2017: ‘I actually came off looking a little cooler than I really am because I had heard through the grapevine, through mutual friends who weren’t exactly her best girlfriends, who would report back, “Oh you know, I think she’s dating someone.” 

‘So I didn’t make any moves. I was just very, very busy with other things. And next thing you know, I stopped being busy, she stopped dating someone, and then it was off to the races. We sort of reintroduced ourselves. The universe had more in store for us in the fall.’

Wilde also told the story to Allure in 2013: ‘I met Jason, and I thought he was so charming. He’s a great dancer and I’m a sucker for great dancers. But he didn’t even get my number. 

‘Over the next six months we kept running into each other. [One night] my best guy friend walked up to him and said, “This is Olivia’s number. Use it.” That was the beginning.’
