"This has been a difficult decision for Rhonda and me, but after 10 years of marriage we have decided to separate," Aikman told the newspaper. "We remain deeply committed to our children and respectfully ask that you honor our family's privacy during this period of adjustment."
The couple married in 2000 and shared a home together in the Dallas area. They have two daughters together: Jordan Ashley, 9, and Alexa Marie, 8. Rhonda also has one daughter from a previous marriage.
Aikman played quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for 12 years before retiring in 2000. He led the team to three Super Bowl championships and was named the Super Bowl XXVII MVP. He is currently a football analyst for Fox.
