Actress Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang TheoryBlossom) announced on her blog Wednesday that she and husband Michael Stone have decided to end their nine-year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Earlier this year, Bialik published Beyond the Sling, a book on parenting her two young children.

“Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children,” Bialik wrote on her blog. “It is not something we have decided lightly. The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose. The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible.”

She ended her post by saying, “We will be ok.”
