Atlanta Falcons Owner

My Wife Is FINALLY Divorcing Me

2/3/2013 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0201-stephanie-blank-arthur-gettyHe definitely saw this coming ... but now Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has been hit with divorce papers from his estranged wife ... TMZ has learned. 

Blank -- the BILLIONAIRE who co-founded Home Depot -- had previously announced he and Stephanie Blank separated in 2011 ... after 16 years of marriage.

Now, Stephanie -- the mother of Arthur's three children -- has pulled the trigger ... filing divorce docs in Fulton County, GA.

According to the papers, Stephanie claims the union has been "irretrievably broken" ... but the good news -- the two have already hammered out a settlement that covers money, custody and property.

The terms of the settlement are confidential -- but with Art reportedly worth $1.3 BILLION ... Stephanie stands to get some serious green.

As for the couple's three minor kids ... Stephanie says she and Art have put together a "comprehensive Parenting Plan" ... but the terms of the plan are also confidential.

Back when they split, the couple had released a joint statement saying they "remain great friends and are committed to working together to parent their three wonderful children."

We reached out to Art for comment -- so far, no word back.

This is Arthur's second wife but that part of history seems to be erased from all sources. As for Stephanie, as we used to say back in Texas, she divorced well.

Good to see if spouses can't work it out. They are not fighting over money and focusing on the kids.

She's not getting anything she don't deserve, it's just two business partners are going in two different directions except for for the children, they'll always be bonded in that aspect. Wish the best for them and their children.
