Rowan Atkinson, the actor that plays Mr. Bean, has reportedly divorced his longtime wife for a younger woman.

Atkinson's wife, 54-year-old Sunetra, was granted a quick divorce on the grounds of his "unreasonable behavior" by a district judge at London's Central Family Court, The Telegraph U.K. reported Tuesday.

Sunetra, an ex-BBC make-up artist, split with the 60-year-old Atkinson last year. The two had been married since 1990, and have two children together, 22-year-old Ben and 20-year-old Lily.

Atkinson has been dating actress Louise Ford, 32, for 18 months.

"Sunetra was deeply upset to be replaced by such a younger woman," a source told The Sun U.K.

Atkinson and his wife were reportedly building an £11million ($16.7 million USD) dream home in Oxfordshire when they broke up.

Like her new beau, Ford is an actor, and has appeared on Channel 4's "Misfits" and starred in Sky's "Chickens."

The two met in 2013 during production of the West End play "Quartermaine's Terms."

According to the Daily Mail, "The 'Blackadder' star moved into a £4 million ($6 million USD) London cottage while Sunetra is living in a £21 million ($32 million USD) mansion in the capital. One of Britain’s most wealthy entertainers with a fortune of around £70 million ($106.4 million USD), Atkinson sold his rare McLaren F1 supercar for £8 million ($12 million USD) earlier this year."
