Joshua Jackson ‘was clearly caught off guard by Jodie’s decision to divorce’

The Daily Mail published exclusive pics of Joshua Jackson with his daughter Juno yesterday – go here to see. The Mail blurred out the three-year-old’s face, but the point is that Joshua seemingly has Juno while Jodie Turner Smith is working in Europe, I think. While I may be wrong about this in the months to come, I doubt their split will become a major custody fight. It also feels like there was some kind of inciting event which led Jodie to file for divorce. Us Weekly’s sources say that Jodie actually caught Joshua off-guard by filing. Hm.

Fans were surprised when Jodie Turner-Smith filed for divorce from husband Joshua Jackson — and an insider exclusively tells Us Weekly that Jackson was too.

“Joshua was clearly caught off guard by Jodie’s decision to divorce,” the insider reveals in the new issue of Us. “They had their issues, as many couples do — especially two busy actors who are also juggling a child. Joshua obviously didn’t realize it was this bad, that Jodie was this unhappy.”

According to the insider, members of the estranged pair’s inner circle were also shocked by the twosome’s split.

“Their friends are baffled and trying to understand how this came about,” the source explains, adding that it’s “true” the couple had “a whirlwind romance.” While Jackson and Turner-Smith’s romance moved quickly, the insider says that friends don’t think that’s the reason for the split.

“They became glued to each other after the first night they met, and then parenthood soon followed,” the source explains. “It was a huge lifestyle change, especially for a free spirit like Jodie. But they seemed so devoted to each other, so everyone is shaking their heads.”

The insider notes that some of the estranged couple’s pals are “hoping there’s still a chance for reconciliation.”

According to court documents obtained by Us, Turner-Smith is seeking joint custody of the duo’s daughter. She has not requested spousal support.

“Jodie seems quite sure of her decision,” the source tells Us. “The ball is in Joshua’s court, though right now he’s likely trying to sort things out himself.”

Yeah, I wonder. Was there some inciting incident, some big fight or fallout? Did she find out that he was cheating? That’s the vibe I’m getting, that something shifted rather suddenly and irrevocably. If Jodie is certain of her decision, I have no idea what Joshua is supposed to do. What, beg her to come back? Did she file for divorce to get his attention?
