Ian Ziering and His Wife of 9 Years are Splitting Up

Ian Ziering and his wife Erin Kristine Ludwig have called it quits. The Beverly Hills 90210 star, 55, announced on Thursday that he and Ludwig had decided to split after nine years of marriage. “It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Erin and I are splitting up,” he wrote on Instagram. “With our hectic work schedules we could not be busier, and over the last few years have grown apart.” Despite their split, Ziering had nothing but good things to say about his wife, whom he shares two daughters with — Mia Loren, 8, and Penna Mae, 6. “She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mom to our kids,” he shared. “It has come to my attention that things are being written and said to sensationalize a situation that is simply not sensational,” he wrote. “Any quote attributed to me is completely false and solely meant by haters to undermine our intention to continue to get along, protect and raise our daughters, and be examples of successful co-parents.” “We ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time as we focus on what is important to us, our girls,” Ziering added, before signing his note, “Peace and love, Ian”
