"The split happened at the beginning of the year," a source close to the couple told People. "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 and Sudeikis have two children, 6-year-old Otis and 4-year-old Daisy.
The pair first met in 2011 during a Saturday Night Live afterparty and got engaged in 2012. Wilde's last posts on social media that include Sudeikis are back in February. On Valentine's Day, she shared a picture of the couple when they were younger. "We had been dating one month when I went to meet his entire family in Kansas. 8 years ago. When you know, you know. Also I’ll travel anywhere for good bbq. Happy Valentines, everybody," Wilde captioned the photo.
A few days later, on Feb. 17, Wilde posted a photo of the two taken by their daughter. The picture shows the couple cuddling in bed. Since then, Wilde's social media hasn't appeared to include Sudeikis at all.
The couple has clearly remained close, as People shared a photo of the exes enjoying themselves together at the beach in September. Wilde and Sudeikis are pictured playing in the waves together and laughing. Fans may be hoping for a reconciliation in the future, but for now, they're apparently just friends.
