Ali Wong has faced a new development in her personal life as her ex-husband, Justin Hakuta, files for joint custody of their two children, Mari and Nikki.

Based on court records acquired by PEOPLE magazine, Hakuta is seeking shared legal and physical custody of their two daughters, 6-year-old and 8-year-old.

While Hakuta did not mention a specific request for child support, he acknowledged that the remaining matters in their ongoing divorce were to be settled through mediation.

In December, the Beef star submitted divorce papers to dissolve her seven-year marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences," as per documents acquired by PEOPLE.

It was noted that the couple had a prenuptial agreement in effect. 

During that period, Wong aimed for shared legal and physical custody of their two children.

The divorce process followed Wong's public acknowledgement of her separation from Hakuta, in April 2022.

A source told PEOPLE of the split at the time, "It's amicable and they will continue to co-parent lovingly.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter for the cover story in March, the comedian talked about the experience of travelling with her two daughters.

"Taking kids on the road is so beautiful. It's the opposite of film and television where I'm just gone all day," she explained.

Wong,41, added, "It's a really fun family adventure because basically at night I'm performing, and then during the day, we go on adventures to the children's museum or the gardens or we see family friends. It's really cool that they've seen so much of America."

It is pertinent to mention here that After parting ways with Hakuta, the Always Be My Maybe star had a short-lived relationship with Bill Hader in the autumn of 2022.

In April, it was verified by PEOPLE magazine that Wong and the 45-year-old actor had reignited their romance, and the duo has subsequently been spotted together on multiple occasions.
