Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have split. The couple, who share two children, Otis, 6, and Daisy, 4, and have been together for seven years, actually went their separate ways at the beginning of 2020.
“It’s been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine,” a source told People. “The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.”
Wilde, 36, and Sudeikis, 45, started dating in 2011 and got engaged at the end of 2012. The two met at a Saturday Night Live afterparty (remember when we weren’t in a pandemic, and parties were a thing?), and things kicked off from there.
“I actually came off looking a little cooler than I really am because I had heard through the grapevine, through mutual friends who weren’t exactly her best girlfriends, who would report back, ‘Oh you know, I think she’s dating someone,’ ” Sudeikis told Stephen Colbert in 2017. “So I didn’t make any moves. I was just very, very busy with other things. And next thing you know, I stopped being busy, she stopped dating someone, and then it was off to the races.”
As Wilde tells it, they just kept crossing paths after their initial meeting: “Over the next six months we kept running into each other,” she told Allure. “[One night], my best guy friend walked up to him and said, ‘This is Olivia’s number. Use it.’ That was the beginning.”
Last year, when he was promoting Wilde’s directorial debut, Booksmart, Sudeikis told Jimmy Kimmel that he and his fiancée had been engaged so long because they “had bigger fish to fry.” He joked that they were waiting for marijuana to be “legal in every state.”
