Both stars have prevented fans from commenting on the post – but it has since racked up hundreds of thousands of likes.

It comes after Joe officially filed for divorce from his wife Sophie on Tuesday, with documents stating that their relationship is “irretrievably broken”.

The pair share a three-year-old daughter Willa and a one-year-old daughter, whose name they have not revealed, but who was listed as D.J. in the divorce filing.

Despite their differences, Joe and Sophie plan to share custody of their two young daughters as per the the documents obtained by

They first hit it off in 2016 after the Jonas Brothers singer contacted her via an Instagram Direct Message.

But seven years later it seems the spark they once shared has fizzled out after the musician, 34, and the British-born actress, 27, “were going through it this year” according to a source who spoke with Page Six, following reports that Sophie’s alleged “partying” caused a breakdown in their marriage.

Meanwhile, another insider close to the former pair revealed to PEOPLE that Joe’s filing was no “surprise” to those people around them.

They also dropped the bombshell that the duo spent “the whole summer apart,” but were still in a relationship.

“They were not separated but they’ve been living separate lives for months,” the insider added.

Before going on to say: “As far as custody goes, this literally all just happened, so they’re figuring it out in real-time.”

“The kids were with him the last few months, traveling with him with family while he’s been on tour,” they continued, pointing out that “Sophie’s been working in the UK”.

It’s believed the former couple should have a smooth sailing divorce thanks to their “iron-clad prenuptial agreement in place,” and will most likely not be fighting over money as per The Blast.
