Dennis Quaid has filed for divorce from his wife Kimberly Buffington-Quaid. The 58-year-old actor filed documents to dissolve the couple’s eight-year marriage in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, according to People.com.
Dennis Quaid is reportedly requesting joint physical and legal custody of the couple’s twins, four-year-olds Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, and is offering to pay spousal support.
The What To Expect When You’re Expecting star has been through a rollercoaster relationship of late, with Buffington-Quaid, 41, initially filing for divorce in March.
She changed her mind and withdrew those papers a month later so the couple could work on their marriage.
But last month the Austin, Texas native and former real estate agent filed for legal separation from The Alamo star famous for his toothy grin.
And now Quaid has put the nail on the marital coffin by filing for divorce.
The pair wed in 2004 at the actor’s Paradise Valley, Montana ranch, and became parents to a fraternal twins on November 8, 2007 via a gestational carrier.
Ten days after the babies birth, a hospital staffer mistakenly administered a dose of heparin 1,000 times the common dosage.
Although the babies are fine now, the Quaids sued the drug manufacturer, Baxter Healthcare, for failing to differentiate the two packages enough.
