After only a year engagement, Henry Cavill and Ellen Whitaker have decided to split and call off their pending marriage.

The 29 year-old actor and the 26 year-old athlete reportedly separated months ago. A source dished to Us Weekly saying, "There was no fallout. They just both agreed it wasn’t working. They broke up three months ago.”

As previously reported by GossipCenter, the "Man of Steel" actor proposed to Ellen back in May 2011 while they were on a trip to Hollywood for his birthday.

Previously overjoyed about the proposal, Whitaker told press, "I couldn't believe it when he asked me to marry him. I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy."
