LOS ANGELES, CA -- Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are ending their two-year marriage.

The couple released a joint statement Tuesday saying they plan to divorce. They have a two-year-old son together. Berry also has a seven-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

The couple's statement said they "move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son." They also asked for privacy.

Berry and Martinez began dating in 2010 after co-starring in the movie "Dark Tide." They got engaged in 2012 and revealed they were expecting a child in 2013. They were married in France in July 2013.

Their son, Maceo, was born shortly after their wedding in October of 2013. Berry also has a daughter, Nahla, from her previous relationship with model Gabriel Aubry.

This was Berry's third marriage; she was previously married to baseball player David Justice from 1993 to 1997 and to actor Eric Benet from 2001 to 2005. It was Martinez's first marriage.
