Comedian George Lopez and his wife Ann are divorcing after 17 years of marriage, TMZ is reporting.

Sources say the split, described as amicable, has been coming for “a long time.”

In 2005, the late-night talk-show host received the ultimate gift from his wife: an organ. Ann, a writer, donated one of her kidneys to Lopez during a transplant operation, when her husband’s kidneys began to deteriorate due to a genetic condition.
