Tony Danza files for divorce from Tanya Robertson after years of separation This post has been corrected. Please see the note below for details.

Tony Danza, who has been separated from wife Tracy Robinson since 2006, has reportedly finally filed for divorce.

"Not sure what happened, they decided to make it official," a family friend told Us Magazine.

The "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss?" sitcom star married Robinson, his second wife, in 1986, and they have two daughters together.

Danza also has a son with his first wife, Rhonda, as well as a daughter, born after the two reconciled briefly in the early 1980s.

The Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actor's first marriage ended in divorce in 1974.

For the record, 12:02 a.m. March 11: This post originally gave Tracy Robinson's name as Tanya Robertson. Thanks to commenters @megan and @Stephanie for flagging the gaffe.
