â€œSaved By The Bellâ€ star Mark-Paul Gosselaar and his wife Lisa Ann Russell have decided to separate after 14 years of marriage. The couple, who has two children, Michael Charles (6) and Ava Lorenn (4), did not reveal a reason for the split but they promised to remain focused on raising their kids.
“They both remain focused on their family and are jointly committed to their children,â€ his rep tells People. Mark and Lisa met on the set of the â€œSaved By The Bellâ€ when she had a small role. They tied the knot in 1996.
According to rumors, Mark cannot handle Lisaâ€™s wild party lifestyle anymore. He is the breadwinner and even has to stay at home to take care of the kids when she goes out.
“The reports saying that sheâ€™s out partying arenâ€™t true,” says a source. “Sheâ€™s a great mom. The two of them couldnâ€™t be more hands on with the kids. Their number one focus is definitely their family.”
