Ioan Gruffudd's mother has spoken out about his son's split from his wife of 13 years.

Margaret Griffiths is setting the record straight after the Marvel star's wife, Alice Evans, heartbreakingly tweeted that the Fantastic Four actor "is to leave his family".

Speaking to The Sun, Griffiths said she is saddened by the breakdown especially since there are two kids involved, but the worried mother stressed there was "no, no, no" way a third party was to blame for the split.

"It is very sad and we are all very sorry it has happened, of course," Griffiths said. "But the children will come first, whatever happens, that's for sure. He's over there [US] and we're here and because of Covid, there's no chance of seeing him for the time being. He's alright."

Alice Evans and Ioan Gruffudd attends NET-A-PORTER Celebrates Women Behind The Lens at Chateau Marmont on February 26, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

Just days ago, Evan claimed in a since-deleted tweet that Gruffudd, 47, was leaving the family home because he "no longer loves' her. 

"Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week," Evans, 49, tweeted on January 25. "Me and our young daughter's girls are very confused and sad.

"We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me.' I'm so sorry."

Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans split.

The couple — who met on the set of 102 Dalmations in 2000 — share two children: daughters Ella, 11, and Elsie, seven.

The tweet has since been detailed and the couple released a joint statement to ET on January 26. 

"As you can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for our family and we remain committed to our children," they said in the statement. "Thank you for respecting our privacy."
