“This is our choice in loving friendship.”

The couple met on the set of their 1983 comedy “Doctor Detroit”, and tied the knot that same year.

They went on to appear in four more films together, including “Twilight Zone: The Movie” (1983), “Spies Like Us” (1985), “The Couch Trip” (1988) and “Exit to Eden” (1994).

They share three daughters: Stella, 24, Belle, 28, and 32-year-old Danielle — AKA singer-songwriter Vera Sola.

Aykroyd was previously briefly engaged to Carrie Fisher, having proposed to her on the set of their 1980 film, “The Blues Brothers”; the engagement ended when she rekindled her romance with ex-boyfriend, musician Paul Simon.
