The pair married in 1999 and initially separated on Oct. 31, 2015, with Parker officially filing for divorce on June 24. She asked for joint legal and physical custody of their kids -- 16-year-old son, Joseph, and 14-year-old daughter, Iona -- as well as spousal support and for McKidd to pay attorneys fees. 

McKidd has stayed mum about the split on social media, though on June 28, he retweed a quote from Jo Oz's Life Advice Twitter account that read, "The older you get, the more quiet you become. Life humbles you so deeply as you age. You realize how much nonsense you've wasted time on."

The 42-year-old Scottish actor has played Dr. Owen Hunt on Grey's Anatomy since 2008.
