'Twilight' Star Michael Welch

DIVORCE

On Valentine's Day

2/24/2013 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0221-michael-welch-marissa-lefton-getty"Twilight" star Michael Welch spent his Valentine's Day doing something special with his estranged wife -- THEY FINALLY FILED FOR DIVORCE .... how romantic! 

TMZ has learned ... Welch -- who played spiky haired Mike Newton in the first three "Twilight" flicks -- filed a joint petition for divorce with his soon-to-be ex-wife Marissa Lefton.

The two were married back in 2008 ... and according to the docs, filed at L.A. County Superior Court, they separated in December 2011.

Should be an easy parting of ways ... 'cause according to the legal papers, they have no community property to split up ... and no kids either.

Fun Fact -- Marissa played 3-year-old Annie in "Father of the Bride" back in 1991 ... pretty cool, right?!

That's interesting,I didn't even know he was married so I guess it's possible for people in hollywood to get married without anyone knowing it.

Father of the Bride movies, on the other hand, were well done and well acted, Steve Martin is a master of his craft, great personality, and Martin Short as Franck...ahem Frawnk...was hilarious
