According to People on Tuesday, January 29, 2013, the couple exclusively confirmed to them that they had mutually agreed to end their marriage, but did not reveal the reason for their split. They were engaged for two years before they decided to be married. They did not have children.

“We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed,” Judd and Franchitti were quoted in a joint statement to People.

Judd joined the celebration with Franchitti, showing no signs of marriage problems.

Judd, who also known for being active in humanitarian and political causes, recently said the she is taking a close look if she will run for senator in Kentucky in the 2014 election, adding that she is “honored and frankly overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the people of Kentucky.”
