Jodie Sweetin put a brave face forward Tuesday after filing for legal separation from her husband of a little more than a year.

“Thank you to everyone for being kind and supportive,” the former Full House star Tweets. “I really appreciate all the fan love. Life can have its challenges, for sure!”

Sweetin, 31, cited irreconcilable differences in the documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in a first step toward ending her marriage to Morty Coyle.
