1019-vanilla-ice-laura-giaritta-tmz-getty-01Vanilla Ice's marriage is officially ice, ice baby -- his wife just filed for divorce after nearly 20 years together ... TMZ has learned.

Laura Van Winkle filed the docs Tuesday in Florida. They have 16 and 18-year-old daughters. Sources close to Ice tell us he and Laura have actually been separated for a few years now, and she's just making the split official.

The couple toughed it out after he was twice arrested for domestic battery ... in 2008 and 2001.
