Alton Brown has officially ended his marriage.

The 52-year-old Food Network star and his wife, DeAnna Brown, recently finalized their divorce after previously announcing their separation in 2014. The couple are parents to a 16-year-old daughter, Zoey.

According to E! Online, Alton’s busy work schedule — he’s appeared on shows Good Eats and Feasting on Asphalt and hosts Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen — led to unhappiness in their union. The split has been coming “for a while,” a source close to the couple said.

Earlier this year, two additional Food Network stars similarly announced their divorces. TV chef Bobby Flay and his spouse of 10 years, actress Stephanie March, revealed they were splitting in early April. In December 2014, Giada De Laurentiis took to her Facebook page to state she and her husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson had called it quits.
