Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef are divorcing.

The estranged couple announced Thursday that they have called it quits after six years of marriage — but are still committed to the “joint upbringing” of their children.

“We have decided to end our marriage with love, respect and dignity for our children and honoring what we have experienced as a couple all these wonderful years,” they said in a joint statement to People.

“Our greatest desire now is to continue having a healthy family dynamic and a relationship centered on peace and friendship to continue the joint upbringing of our children, preserving the respect and love we have for each other.”

Page Six has reached out to Martin’s reps for additional comment.

The singer, 51, and the painter, 38, share daughter Lucia, 4, and son Renn, 3.

Martin is also the father of 14-year-old twin sons Matteo and Valentino, whom he welcomed prior to marrying Yosef. (People reported that the Grammy winner will continue raising the teens as a single parent.)

Martin and Yosef met in 2015, with the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” crooner revealing their engagement the following year.

“I was really nervous, and I got on my knees, and I took out the little metal box,” he explained to Ellen DeGeneres in November 2016 of the proposal. “I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad.”

Yosef said yes, and the pair tied the knot in 2017, going on to welcome Lucia and Renn in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
