Twilight star Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth have finalised their divorce.

The couple, who had been married for 11 years, officially divorced yesterday (June 11), reports TMZ.

Facinelli filed for divorce from the former 90210 actress in March 2012 citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split.

They said in a statement at the time: "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".

The pair have three daughters together, 15-year-old LucaBella, 9-year-old Lola Ray and 6-year-old Fiona Eve.

Facinelli is now dating his Nurse Jackie co-star Jaimie Alexander. She told People about their relationship, saying:  "We've been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year.

"It was one of those things where I'd been single for a very long time and he was going through a lot. We sort of bonded.

"It's very new to me and it's scary, but it's also something we don't want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart... It makes me feel really good. He's a good guy with a great family and I couldn't be any luckier."
