London, July 16 (ANI): Actress Drew Barrymore has filed for divorce from husband Will Kopelman months after announcing their split.

Barrymore, 41 and Kopelman, 39, have reportedly left the " divorce petition uncontested" in the court documents that are being processed, reports the Mirror.

The couple, who started dating back in 2011, shares 3-year-old daughter Olive and 2-year-old Frankie together.

In April, Barrymore and Kopelman announced their split via joint statement.

"Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family," they said.

"Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on," reads the statement.

The statement also mentioned that kids would remain their first priority for "the rest of our lives."(ANI)
