Deschanel's representative confirmed the news to Us Weekly on Tuesday afternoon (November 1). A source described the split as "mutual and amicable." The insider added: "There was no third party involved."
Gibbard and Deschanel were first introduced by their mutual manager three years ago. In September 2009, the pair tied the knot near Seattle after dating for a year. According to People, Gibbard pulled out all the stops for his proposal with a three-carat diamond and platinum Neil Lane ring.
In a recent interview with New York magazine, Gibbard spoke about his initial meeting with his wife. "I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me," he admitted.
Throughout the year, both parties have had a busy work schedule, with Death Cab for Cutie dropping their seventh studio album, Codes and Keys, in May, and Deschanel working on her Fox sitcom "New Girl."
