Josh Lucas and Jessica Ciencin Henriquez to Divorce
The actor and his writer wife are parents to an 18-month-old son, Noah
Josh Lucas and his wife, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, are calling it quits after almost two years of marriage, PEOPLE has confirmed.
“She filed for divorce in New York this month,” a source tells PEOPLE, remaining mum about the reason for the split.
The actor, 42, and Henriquez, 28, a writer, met through a chance encounter at a dog park in 2011.
“It was one of those weird … classic New York meetings,” Henriquez later told the Huffington Post. “I don’t believe in love at first sight at all, but lightning definitely struck.”
Becoming engaged six weeks later, after Henriquez opened up about the cervical cancer she was fighting, the couple quietly wed in New York City’s Conservatory Garden in March 2012.
“We were at his apartment and I remember thinking, ‘I have to tell him or I have to walk away, because this is something big and this could be a relationship,'” she said at the time. “I just blurted out. ‘I’m sick,’ and he was the first person I told.”
“Well that’s going to be a problem for me,” Lucas replied. “Because I’m already in this.”
“I felt like there was a 100 percent commitment and support during the whole thing. I was falling in love with him while I was starting treatment,” adds Henriquez.
In June 2012, the couple welcomed a son, Noah Rev.
“Everyone says it’s the greatest adventure you’ll ever have and I’m amazed at how much I’m loving it,” the Sweet Home Alabama star told PEOPLE that December.
A rep for Lucas has not commented.
