One of Hollywood's hottest (former) couples, who announced they were splitting a day after their 10-year wedding anniversary, planned the getaway to coincide with the inevitable media coverage that ensued, according to Us Weekly.

The two share a home in the Bahamas.

"They got the kids out of L.A. as soon as school was out," the source told Us. "[The Bahamas] is a place they’ve been going to for years that’s very private and special for their kids." 

It's clear that despite the split, the actors are focusing on their three children and putting them first.
