TMZ just broke the news that Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith are the latest celebrity couple to split this year—reporting that Jodie had filed for divorce and cited “irreconcilable differences,” while listing the date of separation as September 13.

According to Us Weekly, Jodie’s divorce filing came as a surprise to Joshua. As a source put it, “Joshua was clearly caught off guard by Jodie’s decision to divorce. They had their issues, as many couples do—especially two busy actors who are also juggling a child. Joshua obviously didn’t realize it was this bad, that Jodie was this unhappy.”

The news also shocked their inner circle, per the source, who said, “Their friends are baffled and trying to understand how this came about.”

This insider, however, also noted that Joshua and Jodie did have a fast-tracked romance: “They became glued to each other after the first night they met, and then parenthood soon followed. It was a huge lifestyle change, especially for a free spirit like Jodie. But they seemed so devoted to each other, so everyone is shaking their heads.”

And while some friends are “hoping there’s still a chance for reconciliation,” it seems as though Jodie is “quite sure of her decision” and “the ball is in Joshua’s court, though right now he’s likely trying to sort things out himself.”

TBD on if these two work it out, but a divorce filing seems pretty final?
