Today marks a devastating step down for true love. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have just announced *sniff* that they are separating after almost nine years of marriage.

The former couple, who met on the set of their 2006 film Step Up, announced their separation in a joint statement via People, which they also posted to their social media accounts. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum began the statement acknowledging the awkwardness of having to tell the world about their breakup, adding that they wanted to break the news themselves during “a time where truth can easily get distorted into ‘alternative facts.'”

Not gonna lie, we didn’t see this one coming at all — and we are truly so sad about it.

The couple was not only the poster pair for everyone who has ever wanted an on-screen couple to fall for one another IRL, but they genuinely seemed to be so in love. We’re sending a ton of love to the former couple and their four-year-old daughter Everly at this time.

At least we’ll always have Step Up.
