The couple tied the knot five years ago and share one daughter together.

Tracy Morgan and his wife, Megan Wollover, are splitting after five years of marriage.

"Sadly, after nearly five years of marriage, Megan and I are filing for divorce. This is a challenging time for all involved, so I ask that you please respect our privacy," Morgan tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement through a spokesperson.

The actor and comedian announced his engagement to Wollover on the Emmys red carpet in September 2012. The couple tied the knot in August 2015, which came not long after Morgan recovered from near-fatal car crash. A Walmart truck hit Morgan's limousine on the New Jersey Turnpike, leaving Morgan in a wheelchair for five months and killing his friend, comedian James McNair.

In June 2019, Morgan remembered the incident on its five-year anniversary and thanked Wollover for helping him bounce back in a touching tweet.

"There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss my friend Jimmy Mac, who sadly lost his life that night. I love you Jimmy. I thank GOD for my family," Morgan wrote. "I am eternally grateful for the love and support they give me. My wife, daughter, sons, and friends are what got me back on my feet. I live every day trying to do right by them and the most of this second chance."

Morgan and Wollover share one daughter together, 7-year-old Maven Sonae. Morgan also shares sons Gitrid, 34, Malcolm, 32, and Tracy Jr., 28, with ex-wife Sabina Morgan.
