Deschanel, 39, and Pechenik, 47, previously told the outlet in a joint statement: “After much debate and a long period of contemplation, we’ve decided that we’re better off as friends, partners, co-parents, rather than the life of the partners. We will continue to work for our company, our values, and, most of all, our children. Thank you for your respect of our privacy at this time.”

The divorce registrations will come only one day after Deschanel posted a photo of herself with her new boyfriend, Jonathan Scott of “Property Brothers.”
