David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz, 46, of the Red Sox, is amicably parting ways with his wife Tiffany, 47, after 25 years as a couple.

Tiffany, who began dating David in 1996 and married the Boston Red Sox legend in 2002, broke the news in an Instagram post on Monday. “For the past 25 years, David and I have shared a beautiful adventure in love and partnership,” Tiffany wrote in a black and white photo of the couple sitting at what appears to be a table at a wedding reception.
“We have made the decision to go together into a new phase of our life journey, not as a couple, but as friends and co-parents of our wonderful children,” she added. The couple share children D’Angelo and Alexandra together. David, 46, also has a daughter, Jessica, from a previous relationship.
The baseball star,
who retired from the sport after the 2016 season, added: ‘I’m moving forward. She goes on. Hopefully everyone respects that. ‘
However, he and Tiffany got back together shortly after their first split and were apparently a couple from then until their recent split.
Last year, Fary Almanzar Fernández, the woman with whom Big Papi shares his firstborn, obtained a restraining order against her in native Dominican Republic.
Fary, who still lives in the Dominican Republic, accused Big Papi of having “intimidated and threatened” her.
The most shocking celebrity splits
Throughout their two decades together, David and Tiffany experienced many ups and downs, including the shooting of the three-time World Series champion in June 2019 in the Dominican Republic. After being “ambushed,” according to authorities, David underwent a six-hour operation and was then flown back to Boston for treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital.
At the time, Tiffany paid tribute to her then-husband on Father’s Day and wrote via Instagram that the health issue gave her family “a new appreciation for life and an awareness of what really matters.”
Dominican officials alleged that the hit was ordered by a man affiliated with a Mexican drug cartel who believed his cousin Sixto was a snitch.
Big Papi ended up in the hospital in the Dominican Republic, where they removed his gallbladder and part of his intestines and colon.
Shortly thereafter, he was airlifted to a Boston hospital, finally being discharged in late July, more than a month and a half after he was shot.
