"We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising four wonderful children."

Matt and Amy Roloff from TLC's Little People, Big World have called it quits.

"After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce," the couple said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

"We are proud of what we have accomplished together including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses," the statement continues. "Our kids and our ever growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority. We will continue to work together side by side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures. We would like to thank our family, friends and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time."

According to sources, the divorce papers were jointly filed on Friday.

The couple had previously been experimenting with a trial separation, living in separate parts of the home, a story line that was explored on the show.

"Last year, it was long and tough," Matt said on the show. "Amy and I had a lot of tensions, so right around Thanksgiving, I thought I would move over to the [guest] house for a little bit ... Amy and I stuck it out for years when maybe we shouldn't have. I never quite felt at home in my own home, so something needed to change."
