In a bit of shocking news (shocking because we had no idea he was even married), CNN’s Van Jones and his wife Jana Carter have filed for divorce after 13 years. Jones confirmed the news on Instagram, captioning selfie with him and his soon-to-be ex-wife, “#FamilyForever ??? … Divorce means the end of a marriage, not the end of a family. ??? #FamilyForever???”

In a statement to PEOPLE, the political commentator said, “Though we have decided to end our marriage, we still love each other very much. We will continue raising our kids together, running our businesses together and supporting each other’s growth. There is no beef or drama — just evolution.” The pair share two sons, Mattai and Cabral.

Jones is a three-time New York Times Bestselling author. The 49-year-old is a Yale graduate and we imagine he won’t be single for long (because, fine).
