"John and Elaine Mellencamp are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family," a representative for the couple told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "They will continue to raise their two children in Indiana but have decided to call it a day as a couple."
According to People magazine, the couple met in 1991 when Irwin was the cover model for Mellencamp’s album "Whenever We Wanted." They later married in Indiana at a log cabin that belonged to Mellencamp’s uncle.
