After an 11-month engagement, Peter Facinelli and Jaimie Alexander are now calling it quits.

It appears that despite their best efforts, the pair had difficulty making their long distance relationship work, with Alexander living in New York to film Blind Spot while Facinelli remained in Los Angeles.

"Due to conflicting family and work commitments on opposite coasts, and after much consideration, Peter and Jaimie have chosen to part ways amicably and remain good friends," a representative for the couple told Us Weekly.

The couple, who both appeared on Nurse Jackie and worked together on Loosies, began dating in 2012 before becoming engaged last March.

The Twilight actor had executed a romantic proposal to Alexander, asking for her hand in marriage at the top of the Empire State Building in New York City.

“She knew it was coming but was overwhelmed during the proposal,” a source told Us Weekly.

Fascinelli ended an 11-year marriage to Beverly Hills: 90210 star Jennie Garth in 2011 and began dating Alexander just eight months later.

Garth admitted that hearing the news of her ex-husband dating Alexander so soon after they split had stung a bit, although she claimed she was happy for him nevertheless.

Fascinelli and Garth have three children together: Luca, 16, Lola, 10 and Fiona, 7.
