 "After living apart for some time, we have made the difficult decision to separate as a couple, amicably," they told the newspaper in a joint statement.

"With the greatest of respect for each other, we've come to the mutual conclusion that this is the best course for us to take while committed to the co-parenting of our daughter."

The newspaper is estimating the divorce between the pair will be about $40 million.

Michael and Kyly, 38, tied the knot in 2012, and welcomed their only child together in 2015.

Reports estimate the two celebs separate five months ago, with Clarke moving out of their lavish home in Vaucluse before relocating to a stunning waterfront beach-front home.
