London: Actress Renee Zellweger has claimed that she decided to divorce her husband of four months because he did not share her dreams of starting a family.

The Bridget Jones star was reportedly shocked, when she came to know that her country singer husband Kenny Chesney does not want children.

"She's an old-fashioned girl and wanted to start a family as soon as the wedding dress was in the wardrobe," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

"She thought Kenny felt the same way, but it didn't take her long to realise the dream was over," the source added.

Meanwhile Chesney, 37, who is said to be struggling to cope with the split, has requested the people for privacy to enable the couple to come to terms with the trauma that the event has caused in their lives.

"This is an incredibly sad time. I just hope everyone can respect the privacy that I know Renee has asked for," the paper quoted him as saying.
