Sometimes love (even a kidney!) just isn't enough. George Lopez, 49, is divorcing his wife Ann after 17 years of marriage. 

Back when George was struggling with a degenerative kidney disease in 2005, Ann underwent surgery and donated one of her organs to her then-hubby. Though sources told TMZ that the couple has been working out details of the split "for a long time," the breakup doesn't seem to be acrimonious. The Lopez's reps released a statement today confirming the split:

George and Ann Lopez have made the decision to end their 17-year marriage. The decision is amicable and by mutual agreement. They remain dedicated parents, and committed partners in business and their philanthropic organization, The Lopez Foundation.

The couple have a 15-year-old daughter named Mayan and have told friends and family that they will keep the divorce amicable for her sake.

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
