Dallas Cowboys legend Emmitt Smith and his former beauty queen wife, Pat, announce that they're separating.  The announcement comes just a few months after the couple, who has three children, celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary.

The couple made the announcement in a joint statement over the weekend.

From TMZ Sports:

"We are publicly sharing that after much contemplation and prayer, we have decided to separate," the 51-year-old Hall of Famer announced in a joint statement with Pat.

"We will continue to move forward with love and compassion for one another, as co-parents and friends."

"We will work together in the best interests of our children, our family, community and businesses."

The Dallas Cowboys legend married Pat -- a former Miss Virginia USA beauty queen -- back in April 2000. They have 3 children together.

The quarantine claims another marriage.  Being locked inside with someone at all times, even after 20 plus years together, will test a marriage.

Both of them will be okay.  Emmitt still has some money and star power.  Pat has some of Emmitt's money and she hasn't lost a step since her beauty queen days.
