Oh, how we wish this was an April Fool's joke... Yesterday, the news broke that one of Hollywood's sweetest duos, Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman, are divorcing after four years of marriage. After tying the knot back in 2012 in a charming backyard wedding and bringing their little family to four with the addition of two adorable daughters, we thought this was happily ever after for the seemingly-perfect pair. However, it looks like their love story has come to an end.

"Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family," Barrymore and Kopelman shared with People in a joint public statement. "Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on."

Although the reason for the split remains murky, multiple sources claim that the couple is "devastated" by the unfortunate turn of events. As are we! We can't bear to say goodbye to this former twosome just yet, so we're looking back on a few of our absolutely favorite moments of the too-short love story of Drew and Will. Excuse us if we get a little teary-eyed...

Friends at First Sight
"It was never really love at first sight," Barrymore explained to InStyle last year. After meeting in early 2011, the pair became fast friends, before a relationship sprouted. "Sometimes whom you least expect is the person you fall for," Kopelman told Marie Claire. "It was a combination of moments. Watching her with my nephew. Traveling with her. Going to museums with her. I knew, adding them up, this was it."

Their Short and Sweet Engagement
Engaged for only a couple of months before tying the knot (it helps when your wedding venue is your own backyard!), the couple always had us aww'ing with their PDA-filled date nights and super sweet words. "What I love about him is that he embodies the power of choice," said Drew. "He chooses to be a good person every day."

Drew's "I Do's"
"The day was perfect," Barrymore told People of her early summer wedding to Kopelman in 2012, which took place on her California estate. The wedding dress was as unique as the bride herself, as the actress donned a custom Chanel frock with a delicate organza ruffle at the collar and a black satin ribbon at the waist. "Everyone we love and care about was there. It was as fun and meaningful as we ever could have hoped," she said.

Their Red Carpet Romance
Although they tried to stay out of the spotlight, when the previous pair did step in front of photographers' flashing bulbs, it was hard to deny their red carpet chemistry. Those loving looks! Those adoring glances! Sigh...

Their Tiny Tots
The much-loved couple completed their little family when Drew gave birth to their two girls, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 1. "Honestly, I don't know how it is for other couples," Barrymore previously shared with People. "But really I like watching him be a father."

And we really liked watching them be a couple... We're so sorry that these two crazy kids weren't able to work things out. But while this may be the end of the love story between Barrymore and Kopelman, Drew will forever be one of our Iconic Brides. (That Chanel dress really can't be beat...)
