In January, the former couple appealed for privacy following the news that their marriage was over after 13 years.

In a now-deleted tweet, Evans had written: "My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week. Me and our young daughters girls [sic] are very confused and sad."

"We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me'. I'm so sorry," she added.

The Press Association reports that Fantastic Four star Gruffudd filed for divorce at Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday. 

In February, Evans had posted on Instagram that she and Gruffudd were "discussing legal separation". She added: "But we are still friends."

Gruffudd (47) and Evans (49) met on the set of their 2002 film 102 Dalmatians and married in 2007.
