"Malcolm in the Middle" actress Jane Kaczmarek and her "West Wing" actor husband Bradley Whitford are calling it quits after nearly 17 years of marriage, People magazine reports.

"He hopes the media will respect their wish for privacy as they focus on their children," Whitford's rep tells the magazine.

The pair, who filed divorce papers Friday in Los Angeles, has three young children together, 12-year-old Frances Genevieve, 9-year-old George Edward and 6-year-old Mary Louisa.
