The celebrity couple who has been married for 16 years is asking for privacy during the 'difficult time'.

"Little House on the Prairie" star Melissa Gilbert has split from her husband of 16 years. The former child star, 46, wed actor Bruce Boxleitner, 60, in 1995 and they are parents to 15-year-old son Michael, in addition to three children from previous relationships.

A statement from the actress reads, "We have loved each other for a very long time and we share four incredible sons together. On behalf of our family we ask to be allowed our privacy during this very difficult time."

Gilbert was previously married to Bo Brinkman, father of her 21-year-old son Dakota. Boxleitner has two sons, ages 30 and 25, from his previous marriage to former actress Kathryn Holcomb.
