The star of The New Girl is newly single.

Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab for Cutie crooner Ben Gibbard are ending their marriage, a rep for the actress confirms to PEOPLE.

“It’s amicable, it’s mutual,” a source says of the couple’s decision to split. “The intention is to move forward with a divorce.”

Gibbard, 35, accompanied Deschanel, 31, to the Emmys in September. An onlooker at the time said they appeared happy and he seemed supportive as she did interviews to promote her new Fox show.

The pair wed in 2009 near Seattle.
